I have ask some person, what is the problem that keeps them from chasing after their dreams. What I have found out is that they are afraid of being rejected or fear to fail, but they didn’t know that failure is a big part of success. Without failure there is no success and without success there’s no failure. We just didn’t know that every successful person has failed too. Every person experienced having many ups and downs during their journey and they used their downfalls to become more stronger, to learn something new and to be a better version of themselves. They dont stop from learning to those failure untill they succeed. They make failure a teacher not their undertaker. Like a book, failure is just a part of one chapter and you still have many pages ahead of you. I had read a book about Thomas Edison in his quest to invent a light bulb, he failed 10,000 times but refused to give up. When asked why he did not give up, he said “I didn’t fail. I just discover another way not to invent the light bulb.” And another one quoted from William Shakespeare “Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attemp.”
Just like what we are doing right now, some of us are afraid of going into this new world of freelancer. Afraid of not landing a job after this study, afraid of being rejected by clients, but dont be afraid of being rejected. Dont be afraid of failing. We fail or we get rejected maybe because that is not meant for you, maybe God has a better plan for you. Let us not be afraid to fail, instead we need to look forward on failure. Lets learn from it and be closer to our goal. We are only humans. It is fine to bleed when we fall down. It might take time for your wound to heal. Your wound might leave a scar but once you succeed, you’ll look at that scar with a proud expression and think that everything is worth it. Failure doesnt define a person’s status, failure is there to remind you that you should’nt stop and you should work hard to be the best version of yourself. Dont take failure as a barrier for achieving your goals. Dont fear failure, because once you chased your dreams you will thank failure later on. Every single person have once failed but you should remember that we’re not defeated until we quit. At the end of the day, you are the writter of your own story. You are the one who will decide if you’re going to end the chapter, or will still continue fighting until you reach your dreams.
