Strive for success and you are more likely to become entangled in fear of failure. In our day-to-day endeavours people are more preoccupied with avoiding failure than they are about achieving success.
Here’s how it works. Truly successful people achieve success because they know they can. Part of getting there may mean failing from time to time, but rather than fearing failure they see it as par for the course.
The rest of us who aspire to success are far less likely to achieve it because when we create a vision of success we simultaneously conjure up the other side of the coin with a question like “But what if I fail?”
Fear is a powerful emotion and fear of failure gets in the way of getting to success.
