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 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.
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.

5 Powerful Reasons Why Passion is a Key to Success
I once believed that we don’t need passion to succeed. However, when I started blogging, I realized that passion is a key to success. I noticed that my passion for blogging made me write articles consistently.
Besides this, my research on successful people enlightened me that successful people are passionate about their jobs. They work 24/7 because they enjoy and love their work.
These findings forced me to think deeply about the relationship between passion and success hence making me realize that passion leads to success because it:
1.Makes it Hard for You to Give Up
It will be hard for you to give up on something when you are passionate because you won’t care about the results. You’ll only care about doing your thing, and you’ll do it even when you don’t get the desired results. For instance, if you love singing, you’ll continue singing even when you only have 5 views on Youtube.
2.Makes You a Hard Worker
Passion makes you work more hours because it makes you obsessed with your work. You’ll want to work whenever you find time because you love your work. Besides this, when you are passionate, you’ll work long hours because you won’t be able to tell the difference between work and play. For you, working will be playing.
3.Changes Your Attitudes Towards Difficulties
People who aren’t passionate about their jobs have a negative attitude towards obstacles. They either see them as threats or messages from the universe that they’ll never succeed.
However, passionate people perceive obstacles as an opportunity for growth. They are always eager to overcome them, and they believe they’ll become better at their craft after overcoming obstacles.
4.Prevents You From Wasting Time
If you do what you love, you’ll be obsessed with work because you’ll be excited about it. For this reason, you’ll want to spend most of your time working, and you’ll avoid wasting time on useless activities such as gossiping or liking and commenting on Facebook posts all day.
Passion leads to obsession, which breeds focus. Focus leads to success because it increases the quality of your work as it makes you more skilled and knowledgeable. Besides this, focus prevents you from making mistakes and breeds consistency hence increasing your chances of succeeding.
People who don’t like their jobs seldom succeed because they mostly focus on getting things done. Moreover, they never reach great heights because they usually lack the motivation to improve their skills. However, passionate people have high chances of succeeding because passion increases focus, motivates them to work hard, and changes their attitude towards difficulties. And, lastly, it makes them want to work all time hence forcing them to avoid time wasting activities.
