“Fear of failure and fear of the unknown are always defeated by faith. Having faith in yourself, in the process of change, and in the new direction that change sets will reveal your own inner core of steel.” – Georgette Mosbacher
I love that the fear of failure and unknown is defeated by having faith in me! That it is really about understanding that failure is simply an opportunity for a change in process or direction. The unknown becomes known by simply moving forward.
I think about my great great grandmother setting out across the U.S. to find a better life. I am sure she was afraid for herself and her family, afraid of failing them. Afraid of the unknown – wild animals, nature, weather, outlaws – Yet they went ahead and faced their fears and the hardships of the journey. They were looking for the same basic things, a home, a better way of life, a chance to be a success. I come from a long line of strong pioneering women and I have faith that I also have that strong inner core of steel that will see me through the changes of direction to the success I am reaching for!
