Fear of Failure Holding You Back?

I have been thinking about this a lot. I do believe in my life the "fear of failure" as held me back many times. I think it can easily become a self fulfilling prophecy. Ever since my home business started going well, I kept having those negative thoughts in my head. "What if it all stops?" "Maybe I will never get another order" What if what if what if.

Instead of enjoying success I was courting failure. I do believe in the law of attraction. Like attracts like. So if you are constantly worried about failure you will attract failure to yourself.

Don't get me wrong I am a very positive person and I think that comes across in my blog. But everyone has those doubts and negative thoughts that start to seep in. I think it can be especially hard for creative people. When we create something we worry that no one will like "our baby". Whether its a painting, a crochet blanket, handmade jewelry or a book its all our creation. So it is very personal to us.

Now when I catch myself thinking those negative thoughts I replace them immediately with positive thoughts. I will be successful, I will get more orders, I will create new things etc. The great thing is it just makes you feel better. Negative thoughts equal negative emotions. So if you brush those away and replace them with positive thoughts you will just feel better all day long.

I was honestly shocked about how many negative thoughts I had in a given day. Not good!
