I’m Scared to Fail

I’m scared to fail.

There, I said it! I’ve been in business for over two years now and I’m still scared. Does this stop me? Nope! I know that I’ve got the drive and ability to be successful. This is not just a hobby for me. This is my passion! I’m just not cut out for what I’ve called the cubicle life. I get too antsy too quickly.

I thought about what my passion truly is over the last week. What I realized pretty quickly is that my passion is to work from home as a business owner and blogger. First, I thought about why I felt this way. I came up with the fact that I want to be my own boss. Next, I thought about why I want to be my own boss. For that, I came up with the reason that I’ve always answered to myself and no one else. I want to keep it that way. Lastly, my passion for writing, freelancing and blogging have grown over the last two years.

First, there are always going to be doubters. Second, people will tell me/you that it’s not possible to be successful as an entrepreneur. I respectfully disagree! I see some of my favorite people doing this and being so great at it. In fact, check out Horkey Handbook or Believe In a Budget for proof that people like me (and you) can do this! The keys to success (many of them) are below and they work! Another thing you may be told is that you’re not talented enough to succeed. Believing that is believing in BS! We are all talented in our own amazing ways!

The keys to success (many of them) are below and they work! Another thing you may be told is that you’re not talented enough to succeed. Believing that is believing in BS! We are all talented in our own amazing ways! A big reason I have been able to continue when clients don’t come to me so quickly is that I believe in myself and have the passion for what I’m doing. First thing’s first, what are the keys to success? These are my top four but it’s not an exhaustive list.

Keys to Success

  1. Passion
  2. Drive
  3. Love of yourself
  4. Love of your Brand

Failure is bound to happen from time to time. Success usually follows. Fight for your business, fight for your brand, fight for yourself! When people get you down, pull yourself up and continue on. I’m scared to fail. You’re probably saying to yourself “Rob, how can you still say that after all this?” Easy, I’m still human!

Until next time!
