You can not realize your projects, your desires or your dreams, even though at the beginning you were intimately convinced that you could succeed. This can be the fear of failure, which can be seen sometimes in high-level athletes.
Note that there is also the fear of not being up to it; I am afraid of not doing well enough. There is also the fear of disappointing: I do not want to disappoint my parents or my children etc.
No matter the type of fear, if you have experienced this harsh reality, you know what I’m talking about.

Talking about its own failures is still a taboo in our modern society, despite the fact that great entrepreneurs have always been telling their failures.
But what people retain each time is the person’s success. But things are beginning to change with the proliferation of new online entrepreneurs, we realize that failure is becoming more and more common.
Why? Because it has become easier to create new businesses after failures.
That is why in 2009, Cassandra Phillipps and Diane Loviglio founded Failcon and gave their first conference in San Francisco. Since then, Failcon has organized conferences all over the world and in all languages.
Entrepreneurs come to talk about their failures. This is a new platform that allows entrepreneurs to come and speak publicly about their failures. What purpose? Well, since the dawn of time, almost all great entrepreneurs talk about their failures but no one seems to understand what that means.
The notion of failure is a taboo in our society. This can be seen at all levels of society. Governments spend astronomical sums of money to combat failures.
Let me emphasize. It is not a question of celebrating the failure but of understanding its philosophy so that we can move forward to better bounce back.
A successful entrepreneur is not superman, it’s just someone who made a few mistakes but still managed to continue.

How to deal with failure?
It is normal to feel the fear and for an entrepreneur, the most dangerous fear of all is the fear of failure. There are multiple factors that can cause this fear of failure.
But what is important to remember is that failure is part of success. All the great entrepreneurs will say so.
What is needed is to take responsibility for our own risk and say that we have done everything possible to succeed and that failure is sometimes inevitable.
Above all, we must not lament and be discouraged because it encourages feelings of depression and stress. We mostly do not need that in such circumstances.
On the contrary, the best thing to do after the acknowledgment of failure is to roll up his sleeves to attack the problem in order to move forward.
Abraham Lincoln said: “My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.”
