Consider failure just an opportunity to learn since you didn’t achieve the outcome you were desired. Yet, when many experience failure, they stop pursuing their dreams and goals because the result wasn’t what they wanted. And they turn the failure at a task into a judgment that, as a person, they are a failure.
Fear of failure and fear of taking risks is really about avoiding or backing away from the feeling outcome (e.g., anger, disappointment, frustration) of things not turning out how you wanted. The key to handling failure, fear of failure and risk-taking is to be able to handle the unpleasant feelings that you might experience as you pursue your goals and dreams.
