In every field there are pressures. Instead of succumbing to them ,one has to be motivated and perform better. In every failure there is a lesson to be learnt.Parents and teachers should guard against putting pressures on children. Man's biggest problem is his fear of failure. It can adversely affect his performance. So brace up and do your duty without any fears.

Pressures will always be a part of our lives. Be it at home or work. Dealing with family issues and problems with peers. There's no ending to it all. Its how you cope with all of this thing graciously and with determination. Although, there are times that I can't detached the fear in me, I tried to lift myself up and stay optimistic. Its not easy but life's like that.

I agree, there are ways to teach out children without putting them under so much pressure. I think a little pressure is ok but not pushed to the stressful point. My grand-daughter, when testing at school, used to get so sick to her stomach because of the pressure. I emphasized for her to do her best and that was all she had to do. She made it this year without getting so upset. She did really good.

I think that when you focus on the fears, they have a way of coming true. To get around that, it is wise to focus on solutions to problems and place attention on doing the best you can. You are so correct in that failure is always the stepping stone to great success if we take the time to look. I also think that for many, it is a fear of success that keeps them hooked on their fears of failure.

pressure is common to all of us, and a certain amount is important to make us strong people,a person who has everything done for them will not learn to do anything for him/herself what is pressure to one person is normal to the next and so on. for example in writing some people find it pressure to be told what to write and how to write it they would rather free style other people find it pressure to freestyle they don't know what to write and how to write it and would rather somebody tell them what and how.

Fear in people seems to be increasing day by day. Do we need to live in fear? When our heart is clean and our attitude is one of helping others in need, there will always be the protection hand to safeguard us from any evil. We should have firm faith in this and at the same time, knowing what the world is like to day, should take precausions in whatever we do.

Precautions seldom help you from surmounting pressures . As for myself, I feel that I am destined to exist with a lot of external pressures .

I agree that failure is man's biggest problem in achieving all the things that he could. We all need to try different things and if we fail, try and try again.
