Ways to be Driven by Success, Not Ruled by Fear

Through an empowered work culture, we help our people enjoy their professional journey. We allow all individuals to be proud of themselves for taking steps towards their goals and celebrate small wins and progress made along the way.

Fear of failure can be caused by a number of factors, including past experiences, beliefs, and attitudes. It can be influenced by factors such as childhood experiences, cultural and societal expectations, and traumatic events. It may also be linked to underlying conditions such as depression or anxiety.

It is critical to note that fear of failure is a natural human experience, and it is not always a terrible thing. A moderate level of healthy fear can be a powerful motivator, pushing people to work harder and strive for success. However, when it becomes excessive or irrational, it can also hold people back, causing them to avoid taking risks or pursuing their goals and enjoying their life. 

One way to overcome the fear of failure is to reframe the way you think about it. Failure is not a permanent state, but rather an opportunity to learn and grow. When you approach failure as a learning experience, it becomes less intimidating and you're more likely to take calculated risks.

Another way to overcome the fear of failure is to focus on the benefits of success. By keeping in mind the rewards that come with achieving your goals, you can stay motivated and push through difficult times. At the same time, it's wise to recognise that the drive for success can have negative effects as well. Setting unrealistic expectations or always striving for perfection can lead to burnout, anxiety, and depression.

Therefore, it’s essential to maintain balance and have healthy habits such as practicing self-care, keeping a positive mindset and setting realistic goals. It's also important not to compare yourself with others. Everyone has their own unique journey, and success and failure should be measured by personal milestones, not external standards. 

This is how the Ntegra Guild team functions. Through our empowering work culture, our people feel valued, respected, and supported in their efforts to always do their best and not just when they're struggling. We recognise that it is necessary to focus on the process, the journey, and not just the outcome. With experience, we've been able to pinpoint some of the key elements of what makes the Guild an empowered place to work

Clear and Open Communication

At the Guild, employees are kept informed about the business goals and objectives, as well as any changes or updates that affect their work. This allows them to understand their role in the company and how their work contributes to its success.

Through an empowered work culture, we help our people enjoy their professional journey. We allow all individuals to be proud of themselves for taking steps towards their goals and celebrate small wins and progress made along the way.

In short, the fear of failure can be a powerful motivator, but it's important to approach it in a healthy way, reframe it as a learning experience, focus on the benefits of success, and maintain a balanced mindset. As famous inventor, Thomas Edison once said, "I have not failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that won't work.”
