Many of us are sometimes afraid of failing, but we mustn’t let that fear stop us from moving forward.
Fear of failure can have several causes: from childhood events to mistakes we’ve made in our adult lives. It’s important to realize that we always have a choice: we can choose to be afraid, or we can choose not to be.
Start by setting small goals that will help build your confidence. Learn how to explore and evaluate all possible outcomes rationally and develop contingency plans; and practice thinking positively. By moving forward slowly but steadily, you’ll begin to overcome your fear.
