Welcome to another minisode of the Chloe Made Me Study podcast. Each Monday, I will release a super short episode designed to share one studying idea, strategy or mindset shift that will help you start your study week off feeling focused, productive and confident.
These minisodes will help you shake off any negative studying baggage from the week before and offer a moment to pause, reflect and change your approach so you can move off in a new, more successful direction.
In this week’s minisode, we’re going to talk about the funnest of topics – failure. Fear of failure is something that the majority of students struggle with. Fear of failing an essay, an exam or an entire course. And this fear can be wrapped up in a lot of things – a fixed mindset, education scars, limiting beliefs, fear of judgement. Well in today’s minisode I’m going to share with you a different perspective that may not make you run towards failure with open arms, but will start to loosen the grip fear of failure has on you. Sounds good, right?
The quote from the episode (be sure to listen to dive in deeper)‘I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed’ Basketball player, Michael Jordan.
