The greatest obstacle to success in adult life is the fear of failure | Brain Tracy


The greatest obstacle to success in adult life is the fear of failure.

Taken to its extreme, we become pre-occupied with not making a mistake and seeking security above all other considerations.

This is experienced in the words of “I can’t.” We feel it in the front of the body, starting at the solar plexus and moving up to the rapid beating of the heart, rapid breathing and a tight throat.

The second major fear that interferes with performance is the fear of rejection.

We learn this when our parents make their love conditional upon our behavior. If we do what pleases them, they give us love and approval. If we do something they don’t like, they withdraw their love and approval-which we interpret as rejection.

I’ve created a special gift for you to help you build unshakeable self-esteem and achieve everything you’ve ever dreamt of with confidence.

But first, I want to share with you why certain people behave in certain ways.

As adults, people who are raised with conditional love become preoccupied with the opinions of others. Many develop “Type A” behavior which is characterized by hostility, suspicion and an obsession with performance to an undetermined high standard.

This is expressed in the attitude of “I have to” and is associated with the feeling that “I have to work harder and accomplish more in order to please the boss” who has become a surrogate parent.

More than 99% of adults experience both of these fears of failure and rejection.

They are caught in the trap of feeling, “I can’t,” but “I have to,” “I have to,” but “I can’t.”

The antidote to these fears is the development of courage, character and self-esteem.

This is what I want to help you develop, which will enable you to overcome fear and forge onward toward achieving everything you set your mind to.
