On utilizing an unit on the cycle of failure & determining effects and causes of failure

Effectively on a good note individuals generally begin with a psychology of being successful but since I am performing it alphabetically I will start with a somewhat cynical psychology of failure that will offer considerable insights on the psychology of achievement as being successful as well as failure are 2 sides of the identical coin.

Psychology of Failure

The primary reason behind failure will be fear as well as individuals with knowledge, abilities, assets could face failure in case they’ve unconscious fear. Disappointment is a part of everyone’s life eventually of your time. The psychology of failure would observe the causes as well as negative effects of failure from a psychological perspective. It might be clarified with a kind of subconscious wish fulfilment principle through fear and we don’t succeed when we wish to fail and in instances which are most that we’re directly accountable for the problems of ours. Let us think about failure of relationships.

The failure to have long lasting significant associations particularly romantic relationships might be defined with an unconscious fear of long-term commitment and also the limitations this likely brings. Therefore in case you see yourself to be a failure of issues of personal relationships, this might be thanks to the way of yours of behaving with the partners of yours as well as the connection fear you project on them to possibly disrupt the dynamics of the connection which takes it to a gradual or abrupt end.

Fear of underachievement

Failure in professional relationships might once again be guided by fear and also the fear of underachievement whenever you obviously want to succeed. Fear in this instance is switched inwards and also internalized and I’ve describe such dread in the Psychology of Fear and so I won’t elaborate here. But this’s unconscious and also the individual might not be conscious of this kind of fear that is the main cause of failure.

Dread of underachievement and if one may keep up to date with expectations and duties could have the ability to be the foundation of fear of commitment in private relationships. In reality failure in personal and professional relationships are guided by an unconscious fear of duties, dedication or maybe it might be a fear which occurs from expectations.

Apart from failure in professional and personal life

There might be disappointment in life that is social. Failure has the personal interpretations of its and it implies we perceive our achievements as well as failure or maybe success with the very own personal yardsticks of ours.

For example even in case a writer have been given a few prizes, he may continue to see himself to be a disappointment in case he fails to secure the Nobel Prize. A physician that has saved the lifetime of several crucial people might be viewed as a success by others though he might see himself to be a failure in case he fails to protect the life span of the own son of his.

Wishing to achieve

Frustrations from failure are once again determined by what we wish to achieve in daily life and ways we want to achieve or even achieve the goals of ours. But is failure generally a consequence of fear of expectations or even an internalized undefined anxiety?

It’s feasible that fear is the fundamental human emotion or maybe feeling that starts the Cycle of Failure as well as strain or fear might result in overblown expectations as well as overconfidence (as a safeguard to get over the fear) or even total loss of trust. The very first component of the cycle of disappointment is provided as follows:

Subconscious fear Þ Wish Desire or Fulfilment to Fail (in some cases) Þ Overconfidence or maybe Lack of Confidence Þ Perception of Failure

Usually the main cause of failure will be fear

And I make use of the phrase fear rather than nervousness as in this instance the worry is directed towards not satisfying expectations to ensure the main cause of the worry is identified. Failure is thus an immediate result of fear of underachievement or even may be also connected with low self esteem as this subsequently will provide loss of trust. The reasons for failure are complicated and in spite of the reality that in most instances disaster might be nearly wished, fear is still the main element in failure.

This’s however relevant in case of psychological explanations of failure. If failure in an endeavor is a result of not enough online resources, crashes or maybe because of financial constraints or technical problems, these may continue to produce fear of failure and would in virtually any situation finish the cycle which displays a gradual progression from fear to failure.

Hence lack of resources

Other factors and accidents might result in fear but not in most cases. In case of crashes when say a sportsman breaks the leg of his and is not able to finish a race, the failure is certainly as a result of an external element without on account of concern. When outside factors don’t have an immediate effect on the disaster, the indirect effect will be the fear of failure and this also causes failure in case the troubles are regarded as insurmountable, people may even instinctively wish to fall short.


From the sources of failure it’s essential to recognize the consequences of failure and what goes on mentally right after we fail. Failure may result in depression and as fear continues to be labeled as the main reason for failure, depression, grief or maybe sorrow continues to be defined as the main impact of failure. Whenever we don’t succeed we’re very first angry with ourselves after which this anger is switched inwards to get a full sorrow, pain or maybe extended depression. The Cycle of Failure from fear to anger and further to loss and depression of self-confidence is finished as follows:

Subconscious fear Þ Wish Desire or Fulfilment to Fail (in some cases) Þ Overconfidence or maybe Lack of Confidence Þ Perception of Failure Þ (Failure) Þ Anger with oneself as well as others Þ Sorrow, grief, depression Þ (Lack of Resources in some cases) Þ Loss of Confidence/ Motivation Þ Unconscious fear

Absence of inspiration

Extended periods of depression or maybe sorrow may result in loss of confidence along with an absence of inspiration also, people will be susceptible to subconscious fear which results in an additional cycle of failure. What this means is failure would normally result in ensuing problems as well as one function of failure may cause others as the cycle shows previously.

As stated in case of the sources of failure, the same as there are lots of reasons of failure possible with a main cause being fear, the main impact of failure is anxiety and depression while there might be likely numerous negative effects of failure which may vary from fiscal losses to loss of social standing or maybe loss of bodily functions or perhaps death.
