Allow yourself the privilege to enjoy the ride as it goes on. After all, what is the worst that could happen? To your delight, that fear of failure you thought may occur could be your unbelievable launch to a massive success.
Think of one great person who has never failed. I can assure you there are none. The difference here is they don’t see it as failure but as a pathway to lessons learnt. The current situation you may regard as failure only makes you better at the next.
