Fear of failing is a universal feeling that almost everyone has or will experience; it is the number one factor that stands in our way of achieving something that we want and/or reaching our goal(s). As a child perhaps it was a fear of being the last person chosen to be on a team. This same fear is something that directly effects us as adults, mind you the circumstances are usually a bit different.
As a beginning trader and even an experienced trader, we face challenges daily and the stakes are a bit higher than being chosen for a team. The decisions that we make will impact our day to day lives financially and potentially our loved ones as well. Suffice to say it is good practice to do everything in our power to move past this fear into acceptance and learn from our mistakes.
