Question: How do we get rid of fear of failure?

Sri Chinmoy: Do not take what you now call ‘failure’ as failure, but as experience. Then give that experience to the Supreme. Although the mind says it is a failure, take it as experience and offer it to the Supreme. Then enter into another project. Give the Supreme in me the result of all your actions. That is the real success. Accept every experience with a cheerful frame of mind. If the result of your actions is taken cheerfully, then there can be no failure. Experience has nothing to do with so — called success or failure. Every experience can be offered to the Supreme so that you can go to the Highest.
