Fear Of Failure-Atychiphobia covers the causes, signs, symptoms and treatment, along with what you can do about this condition.

Fear Of Failure-Atychiphobia

Causes Of Atychiphobia:

This phobia is commonly linked with early life causes, like demeaning parents or siblings, or traumatic events where a major embarrassment was the result of some minor failure.  Later,  the fear keeps building as the failures and embarrassment add up.  It doesn't help that our culture thrives on perceived perfection in looks, relationships, careers, etc.  Perfection in jumans is imaginary, but the person with atychiphobia won't try until perfection is assured.

Signs And Symptoms Of Atychiphobia:

Phobias, keep us from enjoying some aspects of life.  The fear of failure is often one of the most paralyzing phobias.  Atychiphobia, as with all phobias, is an extreme, irrational fear.   Sometimes, we're so concerned about failing that we don't try an activity we want to try.  Other times, our fear of failure is so strong we undermine our own efforts so we don't have to continue to try.  This is why many have linked atychiphobia with the fear of success.  Like so many other fears, this phobia is often so strong it brings about the very failure that was feared. 

Treatment Of Atychiphobia:

Some therapy is available to retrain the way we think, but all of this can be done with self-help.  Much of the treatment for fear of failure is through self-help and motivational techniques. 

What You Can Do About Atychiphobia:

The best way to beat atychiphobia is to face the things you fear, gradually accepting that failure is simply necessary for success.   Break the fearful activities down into small, unfrightening pieces and increase activity until you're fairly comfortable...then move to the next larger step.  I was afraid of failure at sales, so I practiced, smiling, then greeting, then eye contact, then meeting people, then calling them, setting appointments, follow-up, etc.  If your fear of failure involves test-taking take all the tests you can on things that don't matter to you until you're comfortable with the anxiety of the process.  Fears never disappear...the just get manageable.  I'm still nervous with people, but it doesn't paralyze me any more.

Total Healing:

Mental Health conditions can be limiting and very painful.  There are no guaranteed cures or quick fixes, whether medicine, nutrition, herbs or anything else.  Complete healing is possible...including mind, body and spirit...from God.  If you want God's help with this for any problem, go to healing from God.
