Here Are The Five Unbelievable Reasons Why You Fear Failure

Published

on

The fear of failure is the biggest impediment to success because it prevents us from taking risks, and going our own way. For this reason, overcoming it enables us to fearlessly lose ourselves in opportunities, hence increasing our chances of achieving success.
I believe we can easily overcome this fear if we know where it comes from, as it’s always easier to deal with a problem after knowing its causes.
With this in mind, today I will provide five reasons why people fear failure.

A Limited Mindset

Our limited mindset is the key reason why we fear failure. We don’t believe in second chances.

We have this limited mindset that life often offers us one chance, and therefore, we trust that we’ll never get another opportunity if we fail. Little do we know that opportunities are like buses, there is always another one coming.

The Need for Perfectionism

Another primary cause of the fear of failure is perfectionism. Today, everybody wants to appear perfect in the eyes of the society, and therefore we don’t want to fail in anything because we think that failure might jeopardize our sense of perfection.

School Conditioned Us to Fear Failure

School made us believe that it’s not okay to fail because teachers punished us for failing to achieve good grades. This institution made us fear failure and have a negative perception of it, hence resulting in us growing up into adults who still fear failure.

We Fear What People Will Think/Say About Us if We Fail

Most of us fear failure because we are mainly concerned with what others will say/think about us if we fail. We fear that the society might classify us in the ‘failure category’ in case we fail.

Nobody wants to appear as a failure in the society. We all want to be respected, and we know that people might look down on us, and say bad things about us if they witness our failures.

We don’t believe in ourselves

Another primary reason why we fear failure is because we don’t believe in our abilities. We don’t believe that we can succeed, and we don’t trust that we can rise from failure.

Concluding Remarks

I also used to fear failure, but now the fear is gone because I realized that I can’t succeed without failing. Besides this, I studied many successful people, and I realized that most of them failed terribly before succeeding. Therefore, it dawned on me that for me to achieve success, I must embrace failure.

Furthermore, I erased the fear of failure by realizing that I am connected to a Higher Power. Therefore, failure won’t put me down for long because I possess the power to rise from it.

Just like me, you can also stop fearing failure by realizing its importance and knowing that you have the power to convert any form of failure to success.
