Fear of failure must never be a reason not to try something.
Frederick Smith

Almost all people have a fear of failure, at least until they make a conscious effort to overcome it. If there’s one common theme among successful people, it’s that they have almost to a person found a way to conquer their fear of failure. They realize that without failure, there is typically no meaningful accomplishment. How many “failures” are you willing to suffer through and learn from on your way to achieving all your dreams and aspirations?

  • In my opinion the fear of failure is overrated, people are afraid of criticism, and avoid doing something remarkable because of it.

  • But what are they afraid of being criticized about? At the end of the day, the difference is largely semantics, in my opinion.
