Fear of failure is tough to break through. Take things one day at a time. How can you succeed today? Then tomorrow, ask yourself the same question. You will actually perform a lot better at your job if you can reduce the stress and anxiety of fearing the worst.

I know it’s easier said than done, but you can’t get there if you don’t start. Start with small steps each day.

And add something to your life that makes you feel successful and valuable. You need those “wins” to balance the dread.
