When you fail, immediately get back up and repeat that process
Today while I was at work I was making follow up calls as usual. A guy I had talked to whom I was following up with was next on my list to follow up with. When I called him I introduced myself and then he got PISSED! He yelled at me and told me to not call him again.
Now I felt terrible once he hung up on me. It would have been justified to wait a bit before calling again, but that’s how the fear of failure sets in.
Fear = False Evidence Appearing Real
So, I forced myself to take another call. This wasn’t easy, but after I forced myself though that next call, it told my brain that these calls aren’t so bad and I was able to keep going!
Don’t let one failure hold you back! Get back in there and try again immediately so the fear of failure doesn’t set it!
