Fear of failure is a very common phobia. Although this fear can be emotionally damaging, most people tend to ignore it. Some are not even aware that their ambitions are stifled by this fear; perhaps seeing it as a lack of intelligence or inner strength, or mistake it for laziness. The truth is, virtually all the emotions you experience, both good and bad, occur directly from your own subconscious mind.

This immobilizing emotional condition is a product of past negative thought programming. You fear you can’t achieve a certain goal because you think you’re not worthy. Fear of success is actually the same as fear of failure. It is a condition that obstructs personal progress. The major cause of fear of failure is poor self-esteem resulting from past negative judgments.

This fear of failure phobia often hides in the subconscious mind and is not always evident on a conscious level. You may be trying really hard, but “life” is sabotaging your best efforts. Fear of failure stops many from taking important strides forward in their lives. The result could be poor self-esteem based on misperceptions in the subconscious and could cause you to underestimate your full potential.

How to overcome fear of failure? A trained hypnotherapist can aid you. A positive approach to low self-esteem would be learning self-acceptance. When you improve your self-acceptance, past negative programming is eliminated. Then you can experience a certain degree of significant freedom in your daily life – freedom from the tyranny of your own self-degradation. You can free yourself from fear of failure by finding and resolving the root cause (or causes), and changing faulty programming in your brain. You can do this easily through hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy does not change who you are. It will change attributes you would like to see changed, such as avoidance of new goals and experiences due to fear of failure. In order to overcome this fear, you need to learn how to deal with it. Positive thinking is a common approach, but will not necessarily teach you how to cope with failure. Everyone fails at some point in life. This is a natural process of learning and growing. But if you are unable to handle this reality, then hypnotherapy can change your attitude about failure.

A hypnotherapist’s training and expertise helps you overcome your fear of failure. Your hypnotherapist may focus on a pair of things: identifying previous traumas, and teaching your subconscious that past failures are not related to future successes. The hypnotherapist adapts to the unique needs of each client, and applies different styles and techniques tailored specifically for each individual.
