Excellent article . As rightly pointed out , fear of mistakes forces one to be stagnant - not willing to try new things . That forces us to remain in our comfort zone and makes us think that anything out of it will invite mistakes . We feel that Mistakes are the worst thing that can happen to us and that we should do everything possible to avoid it.
My problem is closely related to the one discussed - fear of failure. I deal with my mistakes objectively , trying to learn from them. But the thought that my image before others will be shattered (if I lose to my opponent ) is one reason contributing to it. There are many who have the same problem. I have noticed a phenomenon in my place - players who start coaching stop playing tournaments . I am not speaking of busy coaches who do not have time . I strongly believe that they cannot think of the students coming across their defeats in games - fear of failure again ! I would like you to have an article on it. I think only if the perspective on what one should expect from playing a game should change .
Thank you for the excellent articles.
Extremely Sorry . I just read your excellent article the Right Mindset. That deals with the fear of failure part !
Thanks once again!
