The fear of failure often hinders you from going after your dreams. This fear stems from the lessons you learned at a young age. In school you are taught that you must have the right answer in order to succeed. Today, now that you’re grown and in the real world, it’s difficult to take action on your dreams because you’re afraid that you might have the wrong answer.
