Good Morning!
I hope you have had a great start to the week.

This week's Motivational Monday is all about failing, self belief and generally stressing yourself out over something that might not happen; failure. Something I personally really struggle with is believing that I'm going to fail with absolutely everything and on Sunday, after I had just finished a Paediatric First Aid exam, I thought I was going to fail and I thought this so much than I felt sick and I think this is something that many people struggle with.

While I stress over absolutely everything and I always believe that I'm going to fail with absolutely everything that I do; my mum reminded me the other day that I have never, and I mean never, failed at anything that I've put my all into. Apart from driving tests, but lets just ignore that because meh; they lie anyway (At least they lied to me). This made me think for a while about what my mum said and how true this is and as usual, my mum was right.

I have put my absolute everything into so many things in life; my GCSE's (I definitely wouldn't say I put my all into them because I was so stressed, but I did try), my college coursework, university, training courses, blogging, my jobs; I have done so much yet so little for a 20 year old, but I haven't failed at anything that I've had a go at and I tend to forget this. And this is the exact same situation with interviews too. I go into an interview feeling so sick that I feel like I'm going to pass out; yet I've never been to an interview and been told I didn't get the job (or whatever it was that I was being interviewed for). So why do I struggle so much with the belief of failing with absolutely everything?

This all leads me on to being brave and believing in yourself; an area which I also struggle in. I have absolutely no confidence and I wouldn't say I'm 100% brave either but it gets to the point in life when you stress yourself out so much over the smallest things; you begin to think are these things worth stressing over. I have been so indecisive over so many situations before because of my lack of confidence and fear or failure where I have ended up not doing what that situation may be because of the fear. But recently, every time that fear has hit me and I've sat there stressing over whether or not I should do it; I have held my head up high and done it anyway because if I fail, I fail; who cares. But 99% of the time, if not 100%; I haven't ever failed. 

Do you want to live your life in fear, worrying you might fail when you most likely won't. Have you ever thought you'd fail at something but instead you succeeded? Think about how many times you succeed over the amount of times you fail; I'm sure succeeding will be a higher percentage. If you want something, go for it. If it's what your gut feeling wants; do it. Remember: 

"Fear kills more dreams than failure ever will"

I'll see you soon
