Focus on Growth

The most successful people will tell you they've had more failures than successes, but that's how they became so successful. Don't berate yourself when you make a mistake. Instead, see it as an opportunity to learn and grow. Take that new knowledge and put it to good use. When you make a mistake, reflect, learn, try again and grow.

We all know that getting ahead in your career requires many things: industry knowledge and expertise, experience, a proven track record, being liked by your colleagues and customers, having a good reputation and more. But one of the most common things holding back many people from reaching the success they deserve is the fear of failure.

Jacqueline Whitmore, an internationally recognized etiquette expert, author of "Poised for Success: Mastering the Four Qualities that Distinguish Outstanding Professionals," and founder of The Protocol School of Palm Beach, says the fear of failure is more common than we think, but overcoming it is very possible.

In this slideshow, Whitmore has highlighted six tips to help you on your journey.
