Fear of Failure

Things came together at work today and after months of fretting we transitioned to a new ticketing system. There were a few bumps and a snafu or two, but for the most part it just flowed.
I think the main reason people fret is because they imagine the worst possible thing happening. They fear things will fall apart and you will be viewed as a failure. I've studied enough self help books, tapes, movies, and seminars to know that people often fail. Walt Disney and Thomas Edison were prodigious failures. Yet they ultimately succeeded because giving up was simply not in their vocabulary.
I believe that Fear of failure has dashed more dreams than any thing else since the beginning of time. People had rather live a life of mediocrity than be embarrassed by failure.
Not sure why I veered off in this direction on this beautiful first day of spring, but there it is. I'm too whupped by my fear of failure to think of another topic.
