When my faith in flight overpowered my fear in failure… A to Z challenge 2019


F for faith, flight, fear, failure

Faith in Flight
#Moments

When I realised that my well-thought decisions were taking away my dream, I was scared. The fear of failure hit me hard even before I had seen failure. Somehow this fear settled deep inside in my heart.

I refused to talk to anyone. I refused to go out. I refused to eat. I refused to smile. I refused to breathe.

I refused to try because I didn’t want to lose my dream to failure.

I lost my dream. I didn’t lose it to failure. I lost my dream to my fear of failure.

Present day: As I told earlier, I dared to dream again. It was difficult. But I did. Thanks to those people who taught me to have faith in flight. Sometimes I still fear that I might fail.

I realised that it’s okay to fail. I realised that it’s okay to fear the failure. But it’s not okay to sit back. I need to give a chance to myself. I need to have faith. I need to have faith in myself if I want to fly, to be free.

I am taking little steps, one thing at a time and one day at a time. I am learning to have faith in my flight because I am a fighter.

  1. I once heard something about failure that completely changed my perspective about the subject. I believe it to be true.
    “You cannot achieve success without failure” because if you never try, you’ll never succeed and if you never fail, you don’t know what doesn’t work.

    1. Yes, I have heard this quote to. Co-incidentally, I also read it on the Internet today. I also find it to be true. But then sometimes our fears become so big that we can’t even go ahead to try. I’m glad I’m out of that phase now. Trying, trying and trying until I succeed 🙂
