Fear of Failure

“If you are so afraid to fail that you live as cautiously as you can, you fail by default.”
– JK Rowling

Your most vivid fears are almost certainly not the most important ones. We pay attention to the loud and the urgent. This can lead us to ignore the important and achievable paths open to us–because we’re so busy defending against the overwhelmingly dangerous (but unlikely) outcomes instead.”
– Seth Godin
