This episode of DietRebelTV is all about changing your mindset to help you get ahead of the game.

Let’s face it we’ve all experienced this at some point in our lives.

Whether it’s the fear of getting a new job, finding the perfect partner or achieving our health goals – this fear of failure can completely paralyze us, and so we sit around and do absolutely nothing, without moving any closer towards our goals.

In fact, this is a really common problem.

The thing you need to fully grasp, though, is that we all fail.

And that by allowing yourself to fail, you give yourself the chance to grow, and learn what doesn’t work for you, which is equally as important as knowing what does work for you.

Instead of being so afraid to fail that you do nothing, embrace that fear of failure, learn from it, and see it as a good thing.

Get Ahead of the Game!

When you change your mindset towards failure, it puts you ahead of the game.

Think about it, most of the people in your circle of friends will have certain goals and life aspirations, but how are they going about achieving those goals?

For the most part, they just sit back and tell themselves things like, there’s too much risk involved, it’s too expensive, I don’t have the time, or I’m too afraid of being criticized for doing something different.

However, if you can respond better to failure than everyone else around you, that will put you ahead of the game and you will ultimately reach your goals.

So, rather than letting fear hold you back, use it as a driving force, a stepping stone, to help you get to where you want to go.

Remember, everyone experiences failure.

No-one gets to where they want to go without failure, so the question to you is, how are you going to respond to that failure when it comes? Because that is what really matters!

Remember, the ultimate failure is to give up and not start again. You need to keep on failing and you’ll finally reach your goals.

I love how Einstein put it when he said,

You never fail until you stop trying.

So, don’t stop trying, and you won’t fail.

    Failure is something that I refuse to do. I am very determined and go straight ahead. I normally like to see before a forge forward but will not allow myself not to move forward if I have never seen.

    There is this movie quote: “Fear is not an option” that comes to mind. I experience great anxiety/fear when I have to deal with my finances. I’m trying to tackle events as they occur, but a tend to procrastinate awhile before dealing. I don’t have such a tight budget that I can’t pay for things (currently), but the old anxiety will not go away. I have had success tackling and recovering from a budget shortfall, but how do I convince my mind?

    Thanks, Mel, for this timely discussion!

      Hi Claire,
      My guess is that anxiety has become a habit over the years, and your mind has become so used to that default reaction that it goes to it, even though the ‘treat’ isn’t there now.

      However, consistently forcing yourself to react differently is how to deal with it. Your mind will eventually get the idea 🙂 I’m not saying that is easy, but you will get there.

      Maybe have some kind of plan of action laid out for when you notice the anxiety arising – deep breathing, a healthy mindset mantra that makes you feel calm and in control, etc, whatever works for you 🙂

      It sounds like you’ve done an amazing job to get out of this difficulty. That is fantastic and shows your strength as a person.
