The fear of failure has killed more dreams than all other fears combined. The fear of failure is insidious because it’s largely in your imagination, which can prevent you from even trying in the first place, and this is what always guarantees failure.
Isn’t it interesting that very small children have no concept of failure? They couldn’t care less if they fail to do something. They just try again. There are no negative thoughts or emotions involved. They just keep on going until they reach their intended results. This is such a great trait to encompass.
Sadly, it doesn’t take long before children learn to fear the opinions of others. While it might not be possible to recapture the tenacity of a toddler, you can shift your mindset to allow yourself to take the necessary chances and risks for you to be able to go after your dreams and be successful in your undertakings.
The fear of failure doesn’t have to impact your life significantly.
