I’m a student in a leadership school (LEAD ACADEMY) and in a class we had few weeks ago, my teacher said something which I wrote down. He said, “In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure”.
While I was going through my notes, I tried to break the quote down to my understanding. Some four words are constant in the context of succeeding or achieving a goal;
– Desire
– Success
– Fear
– Failure
     The end goal which means the success you desire and the faults that can sabotage the goal which leads to its failure that you fear. After outlining the key words and how they relate to each other, I further understood that to achieve anything in life you need to acknowledge the fact that there are elements of things not working out as expected which could lead to its failure but at the same time, you have to create the will in you not to fear failing as much as your desire to succeed and achieve  that goal.
     Once your desire for success is greater than your fear of failure, when you make some mistakes or there are some set backs, you find it easy to pick yourself back up because what fuels your strength ain’t the fear of failing but a stronger desire to succeed irrespective of what happens along the way.
