Atychiphobia: The Fear of Failure

Atychiphobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of failure.  Those who suffer from this phobia will not take any kind of risks because they are terrified to fail.  They live life simply existing and never accomplishing anything.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
