It's useless to fear failure. failures tou achay hotay hain!

I couldn't learn accounting, i wasn't making any growth, i noticed. And pondered, why? Another thing i noticed was that whenever i attempted to solve a long, brain drying accounting case/question, i was too much overwhelmed by the fear of failure. Then i reflected: "Do i easily learn any other subject i am good at without initially failing at it?" Answer was in negative. There's a hindsight in it for the people of understanding, well described by today's Management Tip of the Day. It says:
"We spend a lot of time and energy at work trying not to fail. However, most people describe their failures as an important part of learning and growing. Adapt a growth mindset and accept that failure is part of the process of skill development. People with a growth mindset feel smart when they're learning, not just when they're succeeding. Don't limit yourself to doing things that you know you can do — you won't grow that way. Instead, try things that are above your ability, set high goals that you aren't sure you can reach. You might surprise yourself and succeed — and if you don't, you'll learn something new."
Learning is our "categorical imperative". (But don't make a habit of having too many categorical imperatives, though.)
