Is it a fear that you will fail at something that really doesn’t matter?
The idea for this blog came from quote that I read recently by Francis Chan. The quote is; “Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.”
After I read this quote I thought about the many times in my life that I strived so very hard to achieve something that really didn’t matter. For example achieving a sales goal or winning a City Council seat when I lived in Western Canada. Yes, those were good for the ego, but other than that not much.
So my concluding questions for you are;
- When you make a decision to go for a goal, have you deeply thought about whether achieving this goal really matters in the big perspective?
- What is one thing in your life that really matters?
- What can you do to succeed at this?
