The fear of failure is called "atychiphobia". It is when we allow fear to stop us from doing the things that can move us forward to achieve our goals. Fear can keep you from experiencing everything life has to offer. So many people will allow fear to overtake them which, can ultimately keep you from growing. Let's see how we can overcome fear together.
Acknowledge the problem: Don't try to avoid situations. This does not make issues disappear.
It is always best to talk with a friend or seek professional help if you feel overwhelmed. We all experience anxiety at some point in life and you do not have to face your fears alone.

Here are a few self improvement ideas that can help you achieve more effective results.

How successful do you want to be? If you have a negative self-image, you cannot achieve success because that would contradict with who you are currently. The feelings of fear, not being good enough, or distrust of your own abilities are the indicators that you want to pursue something greater than your self-image allows you to have.
Change for the better is always good. Here are a few tips that can help you with your transition.

Anxiety has a way of preparing us for important events, as well as warning us when we need to take action. However, if you are experiencing anxiety that is overwhelming, unbearable, and is interfering in your daily activities you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder.
An estimated 40 million American adults live with an anxiety disorder and only one- third of those suffering from the illness receive treatment. This is nothing to be ashamed of and is highly treatable. While in some cases medication is used for treatment there are some daily exercises that can help.
When you're feeling anxious or stressed, these strategies will help you cope:
Being a little selfish can be a good thing. This is your life and not anyone else's. Why wouldn't you be an expert at knowing what you need? Pleasing everyone is not possible nor is it required. Why should you have to?
The same people who try to keep you closed in and dancing to their tune are living their lives just the way they desire to. Too many people get so caught up in what others will think of them not realizing the misery that comes along with carrying that weight.
Free yourself from opinions and live your life without fear of judgement. Yes, there is a chance you could possibly fail, but there is also a chance you will succeed. Take ownership for your happiness. It is not your job to make everyone else happy. The people who really love you rejoice when you succeed. Be aware of those who do not clap when you're winning.
Being selfish is putting yourself first, but there are times when you sacrifice for someone else and this is ok. Be sure that you do not sacrifice your own happiness long term.
Check out these four ways to make being selfish a good thing:

I've got someone that I want you to meet. Allow me to introduce you to this fabulous, kind-hearted, and smart woman. There is no one else like her and I think you two would get along great - meet YOU!
So, you're thinking, I thought I was really going to meet someone. Well, you ARE really someone. When's the last time you actually spent some quality time with HER?
Recently, my husband told me to take some time for myself - without him and the kids. Wait, what? No kids? No breakfast, lunch, and dinner orders? Just me, myself, and I? Honestly, it scared me a little. Why, you ask? I suspect the reason is that I am just used to being around them - being a mom and wife. It seems that I may like them, but let's keep that confidential.
Whether you work outside of the home or at home with your family, we can sometimes neglect ourselves. Let's be real - we neglect ourselves more often than we should. We are so caught up in problem solving and making sure everything around us is in working condition, we forget about the awesome chic making it all happen. We can't help it. Women are natural nurturers in most cases and we all don't do it in the same ways.
Here's a thought: get to know you. Spend some quality with the one person that truly knows you. It's tough enough to squeeze in quality bathroom time, trust me, I know. Start small - 15 to 20 minutes taking off the old nail polish and applying a fresh coat. Make a deal with your spouse, family friend, or relative that would allow time away from the kids. Long term goal - plan a weekend getaway with your gal pals or maybe a weekend stay-cation with just YOU. Whatever you decide, the point is to remember how wonderfully awesome you are. Taking time for yourself is not a guilty pleasure; it's necessary and well-deserved!

Have you ever given much thought about the impact your immediate surroundings have had on your success? What about any negative influences?
Everything that touches our life has had some sort of effect on us one way or another. If this is true then it should be very important for us to be aware of who and what we allow in our circle.
Our childhood circumstances - whether good or bad- were beyond our control. We learned to adapt and did the best we could with what we were given. Now that we are adults, we have total control over our surroundings. It would make sense that if we want to continue to be successful that we surround ourselves with like-minded people. Want to be happy? Make sure your friends and associates are happy. Want to be healthy? Surround yourself with healthy people and habits.
Jim Rohn, an entrepreneur and motivational speaker says “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
Take some time to evaluate your circle. If there are some things or people that don't make the cut then feel free to eliminate. Being around positivity will automatically motivate you to do the same.
Keep your circle happy, successful, peaceful, and full of life!
