It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed. Theodore Roosevelt
I saw this quote and it got me thinking of the whole fear of failure, fear of success debate.
The debate being that people who are afraid of failure are always active, always working, always striving towards the goal they want because they do not want to fail. And that people who make excuses, don’t try or half try are afraid of the success they may get and what may happen, how the success may change them (for better or worse) so they don’t try. So basically that fear of failure isn’t the proper phrase.
