There will always be some things that we want to accomplish, but we never get around to doing those things. Why? Because we just do not have the courage to accept failure. We all know that we are actually terrified of failure, but we never let anyone know about it. Here’s the failure of the concept of “training your mind”, you’ll have to get over it to ensure that you gain success.
There is always a reason for doing or not doing things. If you do not want to do something, there must be a reason for it, and that reason in most cases is the fear of failure or rejection. In this article, We are going to explore how to deal with failure by turning it into something you crave instead of avoiding it. In other words, we are going to learn the art of training your mind.
Start your collection of failures:
The good news here is that it is not hard at all. Some of us are really good at collecting failures. But most of us don’t collect
First, Select a goal that you have had for some time, but avoid because of fear. Second, go for it. Instead of trying to succeed, aim for failure explicitly. Make it your goal to fail. It really is as simple as it sounds. If you want, you can also invite a friend with you, and you both can fail together. Like most activities, It is more fun with friends.
Compete for failure:
Since you are specifically aiming for failure now, you can compete with other people who are good at failing. Challenge them for who can fail in the most ridiculous way. You need to do all this because the only way out of an irrational fear is to do something irrational yourself; over and over again.
Interestingly, by making it a competition, you will be able to focus better on the competition part rather than your fear of failure. After just a few times of doing this, you will be able to see your fears melt away.
Improve your learning using failure:
After you have shifted your perspective to aim for failure; now if you fail at failing, you will be succeeding in reality. As long as you are playing this game, your failure will be your victory while your victory becomes something to ponder upon (because technically it’s a loss for you in the game we are playing.)
This means now you should be able to study your “failures” and learn what made you fail. Then you can use what you learned about your failure in the games and apply those principles outside of the game and actually increase the rate of your success.
When you fail continuously and regularly on purpose you eliminate your fear of failure. This will teach you that fear does not justify failure; good for training your mind. By failing over and over again, it will become easier for you to aim for scary, but not dangerous goals. However, you won’t be able to achieve this from day 1, you’ll have to go for mind training before you can get a motivational attitude.
Using Failures For Confidence:
Aiming for failure will also take off a lot of stress off your mind. When you go into a situation expecting to win, the fear of failure slides in. But when you go in expecting to fail, you will not be disappointed if you actually do fail. On the plus side, If you succeed it will come as a surprise. And aren’t good surprises fun?
Now you will not be disappointed in any case (loss or victory), And the elimination of disappointment will make you more confident than anything else.
Summing everything up, you can see how going for the failure can be a good thing. By using these techniques, you can trick your mind into pondering upon success, control your fear and boost your confidence. You will be able to try new things and succeed at them more than you think. Thus, training of mind accomplished and achievement of motivation in your personality.
All you have to be; is willing to change your perspective and take control of your mind.
