I always think the fear of failure is as irrational as the fear of death.
Who has died and came back and said “oh you don’t want to go there!”
And for the few who think there is nothing after death this should even be an easier transition but how many people have made bad decisions due to the irrational fear of death.
Failure, when does this irrational fear begin? No kid is foolish enough to fall for that fear. If we have children who fear failure, after their first two steps and they fall they will never walk again.
