He who is not every day conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life. – Ralph Waldo Emerson.
One of life’s greatest fears is the fear of change. There is great comfort in the status quo. There is great confidence with success. Change . . . admitting we need to enhance our skills and gain new knowledge . . . makes many people uneasy. With change comes the fear we will fail . . . the fear of failure motivates many to simply embrace the status quo.
Our growth mindset – our passion for growth – requires us to embrace the discomfort of change. We must overcome the fear of failure and cultivate a culture where failures are natural steps on our path to success. We are on a journey to elite; we must learn to conquer our fears.
