    Post Fear of failure

    Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.

    or

    my version:

    Only those dare to fail have a chance to suceed.


    Do you agree or not

    Partly but sometimes caution is wiser than valour. U need to assess your chances and take a conscious decision to take risk and be willing to live with consequences of failure.

    You cannot succeed without taking any risk.

    Yeah, this is pretty much spot on. You can't always take risk because excess risk (than what you can handle) is plain flat-out foolishness.

    To the OP, I do astrology for people and fear of failure does come up reasonably often, but what comes up far more is fear of sucess...

    People (not sure if this translates into US culture), are affraid to be all they can be. It ultimately leaves people with a gap between where they are and where they can be.

    I think the fear of failure or suscess is more often experience by bright people.... IE people who have a lot of potential - ie their potential is so big its daunting.

    There was a love quote someone sent me from a dating site, when guys tend to pick low hanging fruit rather than aim for women they ought to be with.... it was sweet and there may be a nuget of truth in it, I don't know - settling for less isn't something I relate easily too.
