My early school experience included being afraid I might
fail. Failing meant you would be held back a grade and be
judged as “bad” or “not normal” by others. While our atti-
tudes towards student “failure” have evolved since I was in
school, the fear of failure is still a part of many of our lives.
And if we do fail
in our careers, in our personal lives, in
our roles as parents
what does really mean? What does
failure look like to you? Is fear of failure a valuable con-
struct in our minds and hearts, or a major barrier gate that
stops us from living life to the fullest?
