    I've been working on a protect for more than 2 years now, I am about to finish it and I'm starting to fear. What if all I've been doing, all I've sacrificed was for nothing? What if my project never reaches my expected results? What if it's a complete failure? How do you deal with such feelings?

    Then realize you fail at failing but it is better to fail at succeeding.
    So succeed at failing instead of failing at failing which lead to ultimately failing to succeed.... mmmmkaaay?

    If your starting to have doubts, that means you only need to try harder.

    Failure is not the end of life. If you fail, you get yourself up and running back. People fail every day but not picking yourself after is what makes you a real failure.

    You've come this far and are scared now?

    Would you have rather not tried at all?

    And even if you do fail, have you not developed some skills, and learned some valuable stuff that you can use for future business ventures/for life?

    Buddy I will say, Don't look that much Far AWAY. Everything would be Fine. If you are doing something with Full Focus then You can't be Fail. But even if you Fail then Call it as EXPERIENCE not FAILURE ;)

    Thanks all for your posts, got some great ones there.

    Jokes aside, it's a nice way of releasing stress and pressure.

    Great quote, that's one costly bill.

    Yes, giving up would be disastrous, thanks for the tips!

    You know what? You're right. After all I've gone through I now know how hard it is to get to the top.

    Thanks for the good wishes, good lick to you as well. :)

    Yeah, kind of, at least I need to try to stay focused.

    There's a quote I always repeat after many years: "you're not a failure if you fail, you're a failure if you quit" and that is so true. I've come really far thanks to not quiting.

    No, I wouldnt have forgiven myself for not trying.

    I actually have developed some serious skills that highly overcome any failure.

    Yeah, and the key here is not forget that "experience", thanks for your kind words. :)

    One thing that I do daily/nightly is listen to law of attraction audio books, they help put everything (even the most small things) into perspective, which can be very powerful for staying focused on the "bigger" picture. Good luck mate!

    You only fail if you give up, never give up on anything
