Sometimes when we are about to try something new, we have a fear of failure. We aren’t sure if we will live up to our own expectations or the expectations of the people we value. What we have to keep in mind is that fear is something that does exist and it is something that we can overcome if we choose to. Also, we have to remember that success may not come overnight and if it doesn’t that only means that we have to continue to strive until we reach our goal. Unfortunately, there are times when we give up on something (or ourselves) because we feel it’s too much or that we won’t be successful. When we give up, we fail. As long as we keep striving we have never really failed, we have never really lost, and the victory is still possible.
