In her book Becoming, Michelle Obama writes: “Failure is a feeling long before it becomes an actual result. It’s vulnerability that breeds with self-doubt and then it’s escalated.”
I love the concept of this. Most people think of failure as an occurrence — something that happens – but discount the role their attitude plays in the process. They think of failure at the end of the line but in reality, it can be a mindset that influences the process from the beginning.
To help yourself become more successful, banish the doubts and fears as you venture into something new. You don’t have to be Pollyanna about it but believing that you will accomplish your goals can go a long way toward making that true.
