Afraid to try, because I'm afraid to fail

Posted , 3 users are following.

I can't commit any serious effort into anything. I'm always afraid that I'm wasting my time because "even if I follow through with directions, I'll still fail." How do I keep myself motivated and committed?

    I am the same really, so you're not alone. However, mines really from a lack of motivation for things. I've never had a passion for anything in particular. If you have that passion, don't let it take you for granted. With that passion, success will follow and once the success does follow and is likely to, in how the world is coming on today (prospects, advancements etc.) the "fails" will seem minor.

    i am the same mine is caused by a overactive imune system They can stop the immune system attack by giving me immuno supressent medications, that just makes me feel washed out

    If you feel so low you need some help so see your GP and he will decide on a best way forward.

    Find something that is straight forward that you will enjoy and go for it and increase your confidence. If you are really stuck you need to know what is wrong.
