If you are scared of failure, then you don’t want to succeed. According to James Allen, “Do not despair because of failure. From your particular failure there is a special greatness, a peculiar wisdom, to be gained; and no teacher can lead you to that greatness, that wisdom, more surely and swiftly than your experience of failure.

In every mistake you make, in every fall you encounter, there is a lesson of vital import if you will but search it out; and he who will stop to discover the good in that which appears to be disastrous will rise superior to every event, and will utilize his failure winged steeds to bear him to a final and supreme success.”
