Before you can overcome your fear of failure, you have to isolate the factors that are causing you anxiety, writes entrepreneur Richard Branson. If you are nervous because you have made mistakes in the past, you should remember that almost everyone deals with failure at one point or another. "The key to bouncing back is to learn whatever lessons you can from the experience so that you can avoid making the same mistakes in the next launch," he writes. "This will help you to overcome your fear, take a leap of faith and try again."
