It takes 16 years by highly competent educationists to instill fear of failure in you. Fortunately they are ‘lucky’ to have at least 6 hours access to your brain during these 16 years and are highly successful in achieving their ‘goal’ of installing fear of failure.
In all seriousness these educationists are probably doing their best to make you study hard. But their success means a fearful lot of young people who dread even the thought of failure and all the shame associated with it.
Only a few, very resistant souls and exceptional strong minds, survive this, take any number of chances and become successful in ways not taught or thought by their schools or colleges.
Just a sad thing for me.
