FEAR OF FAILURE: How to get over the fear of Failure
Are you afraid of failure? Does the fear of failure cripple you and make it impossible for you to make decisions? Does the fear of failure limit you in what you will try, whether it’s in your career, your personal life or your relationships? Does fear of failure lead you to difficulties in decision making where you get analysis, paralysis? Is the fear of failure keeping you awake at night, producing so much anxiety that it can be difficult or overwhelming to keep going to work or meeting with people?
Fear of failure is an extremely painful condition that individuals have developed in childhood. Often, there was a disturbance or a parenting style combined with the child’s personality that produced an outcome where the individual believes if they make a mistake, if they get bad grades, they are an unworthy, unlovable, horrible human being. Whether or not that was the parent’s or educator’s intention, it doesn’t matter. This child learned that who they are isn’t as important as what they are able to do. And if they got bad grades or they made a mistake, the consequences were severe from their parents or care givers.
As a result, this fear of failure gets internalized and integrated into the person’s identity. It compromises their ability to be balanced and their self-evaluation. It leads to procrastination, anxiety, sometimes substance abuse. The fear of failure can really limit a person’s ability to try new things. Failure is a key part of life and we have to have an open and embracing style so that we can learn and grow.
