We nehrus is a German term that means “we never have to say no.” Basically, it means to never be afraid of the consequences of one’s actions. In other words, if you are scared, then you aren’t as safe as you could be.
We nehrus is the kind of motto that is commonly associated with a person who has a fear of authority. This fear leads a person to avoid making choices and do not try things because they just might get them wrong. It’s also often the kind of motto that a person with a fear of authority might have. I myself have a fear of authority because I’m afraid of failure.
This is a good way to put it: We nehrus, or Fear of Failure, is a way to avoid making mistakes and trying things out. If you fear failure, you won’t fear trying things out, because its not something you can test.
I’m not sure if that’s an actual quote from an authority figure, or just a joke. Regardless, Im afraid of failure. As a result, I avoid trying new things because Im afraid of making a mistake. This is a very common attitude among the timid. Its also very much like the fear of authority, but instead of fearing failure, you actually fear making mistakes.
Well, this is why I was a very little bit nervous about starting to work on my first game. When I started I was scared of myself, but I was also scared of failure. I was afraid I would fail miserably, and I would be judged by it. I was afraid that, if I didn’t succeed, I would fail miserably and this would destroy the confidence I had in myself. I was afraid of the fear of failure.
You would be right. Fear of failing is the opposite of confidence. It makes people afraid to fail. It makes them afraid they’ll be found out, that they’ll be exposed, and that they will be judged. It makes them afraid that there will be no reward for their hard work, and instead, punishment will be levied for doing something they were afraid of. Even if they do succeed, they will be judged, and if they fail, they will be punished.
The Fear of Failure is the fear of having something bad happen to you. The Fear of Success is the fear of having something good happen to you. The Fear of Success is like a drug that makes you forget what you worked hardest for. So, when you think about your fears and how they lead to failure, the first thing we want to remove from our minds and replace with a positive version is the idea that we failed.
I think the best way to remove the idea of failure from your mind is to stop thinking about it. I have a friend that was diagnosed with a brain tumor and told that he could only live for the rest of his life if he stopped thinking about the possibility of dying. He told me that if he could just stop thinking about the idea of failure, he would be cured. I think that’s crazy, but it works.
We’ll discuss this further in-game, but it’s true that thinking of failure can literally make you sick. We’ve seen it in our own story before, and this time we’re doing it with the entire Deathloop team.
The deathloop team were on a mission to collect all the Visionaries who had died from their pasts. I think they were on the mission to collect all of those people and then we could have a story about the death of a few. It wasn’t a good story. A story of a mission to collect the life of the Visionary as a way of saving the world. It didn’t work.
