The Fear Of Failure

Last Update: December 12, 2012
Hi All, i've written a blog post on my experience with the various fears i've faced and overcome in recent times. I'm also in the process of writing an article series about how i've managed to overcome my fears and there's some good stuff on the way!

Would be great to get some insights from others about your own fears. Please feel free to take a look and comment, i genuinely would like to hear other peoples views on the subject to help broaden my perspective.

I deal with this fear every day. I think it`s more of a fear of the unknown. After all, most of us were brought up to believe that such a way of life just isn`t possible.

I have a fear of failure also. Don't really know why and have decided that wondering about it is useless, but overcoming it is absolutely necessary!

Hi Kathy, well i've written about the fear of failure on my blog - link above. I believe the fear of failure boils down to a fear of criticism (in most circumstances). Then the fear of criticism boils down even further to a primal need to avoid harm (both physical and mental). I'm going to be writing some articles over the next week or so, just getting one little project out of the way before i get to it.
