The Importance of Failure: What Nobody Has Told You!


“Have you ever noticed that when some people set a goal for themselves, they also create obstacles to make themselves fail? And they do this, I think, because deep down they really don’t want to achieve their goal and all the responsibility that comes along with it. I think it’s because it’s easier, and perhaps more gratifying, to have tried and failed, therefore earning the right to complain about how fate is to blame for their own misfortunes. This is essentially how fear of success manifests itself, I think. Would you agree, and if so, why do you think humans do this?”
