Leadership

Letting Go of the Fear of Failure

The fear of failure paralyzes too many people. I’ve found one of the best gifts God can give a leader is the gift of failure.

Too many of us are not doing what we feel called to do because we’re afraid to fail. As I observe the people around me, it seems the most effective have failed far more times than the least effective.

The people making the biggest impact seem to:

Try something outlandish.

Fail.

Learn.

Adjust.

Try something that works better.

Failure is never final. It is often the first step to success.

What we've learned:

What’s an area of your life or ministry where you’ve just been treading water? If you haven’t failed in awhile, why don’t you try something crazy and see what happens? You might succeed, but you might fail. Either way, you’ll learn something useful.

It is a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet.
