FEAR is an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real, which means you’re scaring yourself based upon something that has not happened.
FAIL has an acronym too: First Attempt In Learning, which means the first time you try something you may not be perfect. Basically, you have a few tips, tricks, and techniques to learn before you do it again.
Both FEAR and FAIL traditionally have negative connotation, when in reality, those words do a body good. In fact, your first speech in any of the Pathways programs, commonly called The Ice Breaker, places a positive spin on these two terms.
Your FEAR will begin to CLEAR as you HEAR fabulous feedback that will STEER you in a positive direction.
Your Ice Breaker evaluation is a high-level summary of your First Attempt In Learning. This gives you a baseline of what you did well and what you can improve upon.
In other words, and in a rhyme, your FAIL is merely a SCALE in what skills are a bit FRAIL and which talents are hearty and HALE.
Failure are not fatal . . . it is merely your First Attempt In Learning. Listen to your evaluation, incorporate the suggestions into your next speech, and YOU WILL . . . present yourself well.
