fear of failing
No one likes to fail.
But, to be successful at anything, you often have to fail lots of times.
Which means that unless your child gets comfortable with this fear, they run the risk of not fulfilling their potential.
This fear may present itself in different ways, but like any good doctor, to find the cure to this problem you need to go beyond the symptoms and look for the underlying cause.
And your child's fear of failure (like almost all fears) is about one thing:
'the fear of not being good enough'
Which means that the solution is to help your child to develop the belief and confidence in themselves to feel good enough, to feel worth it, to feel comfortable with making mistakes and failing.
You can't just force your child to act... that will only amplify their fear and can have far reaching psychological implications.
The best way to help them is to take a positive approach, to build their confidence and resilience in 2 ways.
help your child to gain a deeper understanding of who they are and what they are capable of helps build genuine confidence and self-belief
help your child to develop the attributes they need to be BRAVE, to tackle their fears and to the resources to become more resilient
How do you help your child understand themselves, to know who they really are and what they are capable of?
Character Strengths are the positive parts of personality that influence how you think, feel and behave.
Scientists have identified 24 universal character strengths that we all have- see below.
Character strengths reflect the "real" you—who you are at your core.
Understanding their unique blend of these strengths is the first step towards your child feeling that they are 'good enough', to developing inner confidence and self-belief .
step 2: develop resources
The key strength that will help your child to face their fear is BRAVERY.
However, being brave on its own is not enough to be resilient, your child needs to develop other areas as well.
We have identified 6 key character strengths that are essential to resilience: ZEST, HOPE, CREATIVITY, SELF-REGULATION, BRAVERY & PERSEVERANCE.
Life is full of ups and downs, developing these 6 strengths will give your child the skills and the confidence to be able to deal with whatever comes their way.
In order to become the resilient and confident person you know they can be, your child will need to learn:
Imagine how brave and resilient your child would be if they developed these strengths?
how do you do all this?
