For those who do not consider themselves as good or capable as those around them, who expect failure, who feel they will never be a success, and so do not venture or make a strong enough attempt to succeed. [Bach: Twelve Healers and Other Remedies 1936]]

We chose the earthly occupation, and the external circumstances that will give us the best opportunities of testing us to the full: we come with the full realization of our particular work: we come with the unthinkable privilege of knowing that all our battles are won before they are fought, that victory is certain before ever the test arrives, because we know that we are children of the Creator, and as such are Divine, unconquerable and invincible. [Bach: Collected Writings]
For those who lack confidence in themselves, they expect failure and feel they will never succeed and so do not try hard enough, they are hesitant and procrastinate, succumb easily and feel inferior. Their sense of failure makes them despondent though in fact they are perfectly capable if they could persevere. Symptoms may include general depression and this is often associated with impotence.

Larch is in Exam combination.
Larch was brought to England in the early seventeenth century from the mountain regions of central Europe. There it was adapted to a brief summer growing period and harsh winters. It is a native of the tundra where winter temperatures freeze the ground so no water can be taken up into the trees; they must shed their leaves to survive.
Larch is not a native of Britain but has been widely planted, especially as a plantation tree for commercial purposes. It is a native of the mountains of Europe, introduced to Britain about 1620.
