THE FEAR OF FAILURE: HOW TO BECOME AN ACTION TAKER, STOP WORRYING, OVERCOME PROCRASTINATION AND PERFECTIONISM
A self-published author and entrepreneur. As a child, I struggled a lot with self-doubt and anxiety. I found in books the comfort I needed and the solutions to my confidence problems. I became fascinated with the human mind and after more than 15 years of study, driven by my passion for psychology and a burning desire to help others, I decided to start writing myself. I want to share my knowledge and personal experience with those of you facing similar issues as I did. I am confident I can help people grow into the best version of themselves, one book at a time. I am honored to guide you and excited to be a part of your personal growth journey!
Everyone experiences failure at some point in their life. In our society, success is celebrated, while failure is considered something that we need to stay away from. But should failure be something we’re so embarrassed about, that’s making us feel worthless? I'm no stranger to failure; I have wasted many years and so many opportunities because I wasn’t feeling ready or good enough. Constant worry and self-doubt in my abilities made me feel imprisoned, hopeless, and miserable. I was trapped in awful imaginary scenarios. Fear held me back more than any other obstacle. I understand how it feels when the voice inside your head always looks for a way to hold you back. But now it's time you start nurturing a new voice: one that reminds you that you're good enough and that encourages you to push through when all seems to fall apart.

I'm looking for a sleek, professional look that is also attention-grabbing. I'm thinking red background color, white/black text but I'm also open to other colors.I created originally a cover for this book, and while I had a nice concept in mind the final result wasn't as imagined. I had in mind the word "failure" from the title to show up as a word in the hangman game, and the hangman drawing integrated into the title ( I've attached a picture for reference). This is just one idea, but I'd love to see other concepts as well. Besides the sleek, clean look I like to see a bit of creativity, like an image integrated in a smart, original way into the text.
What to avoid
It all began with a design brief.
