My guest on the programme is Miha Matlievski – The Fail Coach. It is funny when you consider our life journey. We do not start out needing help to get over failure. As children do not need help to try or experiment.
Once kids get beyond the baby stage, they start to explore; we begin to see their unstoppable determination to engage in the world around them.
From floundering unconscious movement to gaining control of their limbs, babies learn to crawl and eventually walk and run. There may be cries of frustration, but there is no fear of failure.
Adulthood Brings Change and Fear of Failure
Fast forward to adulthood, and for many, it is a different picture.
Somewhere along the way, we learn to say “I can’t” or “I tried that and failed”. I am not doing that it might fail and it will hurt, people will laugh… (you fill the blank).
So where does that determination go? How do we get caught so severely in fear of failure? So much so that we would rather endure discomfort than step out and take a risk. More importantly, what does it take to find the get-up-and-go to overcome that fear?
It was said somewhere that Thomas Edison was afraid of the dark so he invented the light bulb. It was challenging, and there were many setbacks
I have not failed. I’ve just found 2,000 ways that won’t work.
We All Experience Fear of Failure
Fear of failure is a huge issue in the worlds of business and personal development. That is why I was delighted to meet and interview my guest.
Miha Matlievski – the Fail Coach
He went from running four successful businesses and having a personal net worth of $15M, to being $5M in debt, literally overnight and eventually reaching the point where he was ready to take his own life. It took courage and resilience for Miha to climb back from feeling like a failure to learning from his experiences and empowering others to develop a healthy relationship with failing.
I hope you enjoy the conversation with Miha. He is a generous man and very keen to share his value and ideas with the world please reach out, I know he will be delighted to have a conversation. His social links are below.
