The fear of failure is one of the most common forms of fear. It holds you back in life. It causes you to procrastinate, to avoid, to play safe, and ultimately to self-sabotage yourself.
So, the fear of failure is the emotional response from the brain to the perspective of pains in the forms of embarrassment, rejection, disappointment, or loss of money, social relations, credibility, or self-esteem.
Since fear is there as a mechanism to protect us from harm and to keep us out of danger; it is not to be ignored entirely.
With that being said, it is also important to not let this fear hijack all the rational thinking completely, all the time.
Fear of failure is an emotion product of the amygdala which is the part of the brain believed to be “less-evolved” compared to the more rational neocortex
So we need to unlearn old concept of failure and success
Success = If the outcome of a situation is in accordance with our goal or our desire, we call it a success.
Failure =if the outcome of a situation is not what we expect, we call it a failure
The truth is, failure only means there’s more to learn; maybe in the approaches, the techniques, the methods, the timings, etc. Or, in other words, it’s a feedback.
In this step we use meditation and mindfulness techniques to install our new found idea of failure into the stubborn subconscious part of the barin
You can use any practice, personally for me i use basic meditation of focusing on breathing
Our goal is to look at THOUGHT'S OF FAILURE as just an object, don't hate as well as don't love, a neutral mindset
