One of the most common things that we hear from people who are interested in opening their own F45 Training studios is that they are afraid to fail.
Or perhaps people have already experienced a taste of ‘failure’ and they are afraid of repeating history.
“I’ve had some failures in the past that are preventing me from taking this next step forward.”
Have you had some of these same thoughts?
Before we go any further, we want to validate those feelings and express just how much we understand what you, or any other person, are going through when feeling scared of failure. It can be intimidating to take a leap of faith and try something new. Or perhaps you already tried something new in the past and it didn’t quite work out for you. Either way, we completely understand and we know what you are going through.
But rather than us sitting in front of you explaining why you should put faith in yourself and give yourself the benefit of the doubt, we wanted to share a few stories of success with you. These success stories, however, are some of the most popular in the world and they all have one thing in common—failure.
Even the most successful entrepreneurs and leaders have experienced some sort of failure or rejection in their lifetime. Instead of allowing it to define them and turn them into a hardened shell of the ambitious individuals they once were, they allowed it to fuel their passion in business.
If the likes of Oprah, Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, and Warren Buffett can get past their rejection and failure in business, you can too. For example, take this excerpt from Elon Musk’s story: ‘His early attempts at building an aerospace business saw him dealing with less than enthused Russian entities that refused to sell him any rockets. But after each rejection, he went on to build something new.’
Before you completely write off a new business opportunity over the fear of failure, we encourage you to use that drive and passion towards avoiding that feeling and channel it into a new opportunity. Jumping into a new business can feel intimidating at times, but with the right people behind you (such as F45 Training as your franchisor), you can accomplish great things.
