Fear of failure has been a problem for me for as long as I can remember. Looking back on all the times I've feared failure, none of them have been because I was afraid for me. I see that it has always been because I was afraid of what others would think or say. People will always be out there to tell you that you can't or shouldn't do something. Sometimes it will be those closest to you. It's their own fears that are overlaid on your dreams and aspirations and we must shake them off. Realize that does not mean ignoring what they say, afterall we should have a certain measure of caution and they may see things that we can't. But all that "Good" advice should temper your dreams, not stifle them. Our dreams should power us to move forward. Our fears should balance us along the way to achieving that goal.
