Fear Of Failure
Fear of failure is probably the no1 reason why people tend to back off from even trying to do anything productive to help reach their goals. It can be due to what their parents have taught them, what their school has taught them or it can be just the society and the type of people they interact with. If you look at people in general you would notice that when it comes to success almost everybody has the same perception, and that is “Play it safe”. How ironic. Playing it safe never helped mankind to reach the moon or reach the bottom of the deepest ocean. Playing it safe is good for 1 thing and 1 thing only and that is never being able to reach your true potential. Now I’m not saying you shouldn’t be careful when it comes to making decisions because that’s not called playing it safe, that’s more like being stupid. How you take risks is by not letting fear dominate your decisions but instead it should be reason, logic and calculations.
I want to share with you a video by Brian Tracy which goes in more depth about the fear of failure and hopefully you will learn how to overcome it and start progressing in what dreams and ambitions you might have.
