I'm human: I'm afraid of failing

“Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” 
– Denis Waitley

I'm human: I'm afraid of failing. This is a title of a one chapter from a book called  Effectual entrepreneurship (2011, 61-70) The authors write also: "The key to learning from failures, of course, is to keep them small and kill them young."  On the same chapter there is a good example about succession. The title of story is Right and wrong. (p. 64):
"- Sir, what is the secret of your success?, a reporter asked a successful businessman.
- Two words.
- And what are they, sir?
- Right decisions.
- And how do you make right decisions?
- One word.
- And what is that, sir?
- Experience.
- And how do you get experience?
- Two words.
- And what are they, sir?
- Wrong decisions."

A very interesting point, true or not.
