My Confession

I think too often I let my fear of failure sufficate my abilities to succeed. I aire on the side of caution rather than passion.

I know the feeling. I think it is somewhat a part of the human condition. But some of us have this problem a bit more than others.

I've found that I not only fear failure- I fear mediocrity. Therefore, if I think that my attempt at something will be OK but won't be at least superb, I don't even try. In a way, it motivates me to be excellent. On the other hand, it prevents me from trying something that might be beneficial.
