What Is Fear of Failure?

Nobody enjoys failing. Fear of failure can be so strong that avoiding failure eclipses the motivation to succeed. Insecurity about doing things incorrectly causes many people to unconsciously sabotage their chances for success.

If you are afraid of failure, it will cause you to avoid potentially harmful situations.

Fear of failure keeps you from trying, creates self-doubt , stalls progress, and may lead you to go against your morals.

What is fear of failure

The fear of failure, which is sometimes referred to asatychiphobia, is an irrational and persisting fear of failing.

  • Sometimes this fear might emerge in response to a specific situation. In other cases, it might be related to another mental health condition such as anxiety or depression.

The fear of failure may also be related to being a perfectionist Because perfectionists have such high expectations for how they expect things to turn out, they may experience a nagging fear that they won't live up to those often unrealistically high standards.
