    Which do you fear most?

    Do you fear success or failure more?  Why do you think that is?

    I have a tendency to be pretty hard on myself so I fear failure. I project how I feel about myself to others so I always feel others will be hard on me, as well.

    Im not sure, I don't fear failure, I am always of the opinion that I can try again next time, so it doesn't really phase me, but, success, I don't know, I've never feared success either, well, this comment is useless, I can't give you an answer, sorry.

    I fear to fail. I don't know why, but I strive to do my best. I never want to let anyone down, so when I fail, I feel like I have let someone down. A fault I have yet to conquer!

    Good question! I think we should find some common definition of success and failure. I suppose each one has a different perception of the success.
    In my perspective, success in life brings many lives in yours, in the form of projections, protections, splitting, altruism, and others. The charge of responsibility increases consequently. Vice versa, the failure makes you poor of lives. I think that I have fear of both the extremes and something balanced between the two is my best choice in the life. My definition of success is not so maniacal and the failure is far away from a bad situation to which I can react correctly.
