Fear of failure has been the driving force behind the majority of the poor decisions in my life. Its something I struggle with to this day, but we all have our issues I guess. Well done for breaking that barrier.

Thanks Peter! I definitely still have moments of doubt but then I remind myself that no one learns a new skill/trade on the first attempt. You've got this!

I feel ya on that! Fear of failure is so strong sometimes and can really be quite debilitating. I have to remind myself that trying and failing is infinitely better than not trying and nothing happening. I feel like generally if I don't do something because of fear of failing then I'm going to regret it.

Michael, I couldn't agree more! It's almost a negative feedback loop where you don't want to fail but feel guilty for not trying in the first place. :)
