“Just be yourself!” Try telling that to a teen with autism! Much of the time when they’re just “being themselves” it’s all wrong and they’re always been told that they way they pass papers in class, answer when called on, eat lunch, make a joke, it’s “inappropriate” or “argumentative” or just plain “weird.”

Fear of failure bedevils the lives of millions children, teens, and adults. As a result, procrastination often follows. Fortunately, you can rein in both your fear of failure and procrastination using the same techniques.

Let’s explore the thinking behind the fear of failure. Jeremy’s example may help. Jeremy’s fear of failure thoughts were like a thundercloud over his head.
