I used to be really afraid of losing myself. When I was 15 my rating was 1950 FIDE, now 5 years later it's still an average 2000 while some people I beat when I was 13-15 are now 2300+. Because I was so afraid of staying behind the result became everything for me and that basically held me back. Now I am way more relaxed and play the game because I still like it.
as heissman usually teach his students: study-->play-->feedback :D!
Thanks. . .m gathering alot of motivation by now. .
My advice is simple. Practice on chess.com! If you do not want to spend money for tactics and chess mentor, then watch Youtube videos or simply go to Chess Tempo. The internet is a great place to learn chess. However, chess.com is the best in my opinion. Just buy a membership and watch your rating grow. (Just make sure to make the most of the time :).
When we do something like playing chess we go on a huge learning curve. If you were to win every game you played it would become very ho hum after a while, you need to lose sometimes. It makes you try harder next time and spices up the game, makes life more exciting if you go into anything with the knowledge you may lose. Makes for a much bigger challenge and makes the winning so much sweeter!!
