Don’t Be Afraid Of Failure
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There’s absolutely nothing to fear but fear itself when it comes to running your own business, both online and offline. Most people are very afraid of failure and that is completely human but it is also important to understand that failure is the best teacher. You can hit the ground as hard as a log but how quickly you get up will make all the difference. Trust me, I know failure first hand, I’ve fallen flat on my face many times before, got up, dusted off and kept moving; why? Well, stakes are too high to fail.

There are different types of learners in this world, and it is vital to know just which type of learner you are. I know that I’m a visual learner because I learn well when I’m seeing and visualizing. Some people are auditory learners because they speak slowly and they listen attentively. While some are read-write learners, they enjoy reading and writing. Whereas others are kinesthetic learners, they learn by doing and solving problems in real life, so, which one are you?

If you are a visual learner like me and you force yourself to be an auditory learner, you will find it very hard to understand certain things because you are forcing yourself to be something you are not. And therefore, it will take you a long time to learn something.

Now, how do I know that I’m a visual learner? Because I forget very easily what I hear, but I tend to remember what I see, discuss, and do. You can be the best teacher in the world but if I’m not looking at you or seeing what you are doing, it will take me a very long time to understand.

It is also important to understand that people are different, some people will learn very quickly and apply what they learn correctly, while others will fail at least twice before they can get it right, and that’s okay, failure begins when you stop trying. You must keep in mind though that it doesn’t matter how soon you get to the finish line, what matters is being able to make it across the finish line.

Therefore, if you cannot run, walk, if you cannot walk, craw, it is the same destination any way. But giving up is not an option, especially these days when there are not jobs, your best bet is working for yourself from home online or offline.
