What will people say? What if I fail? No one will ever believe in me. These are the things which could make one into not doing anything they wish to do. Being afraid of being rejected or criticized is may be one of the reasons our kind is still struggling to be the owner of resources. We always want to be perfect before pursuing anything. If you do not believe me, look at how many jobs you snubbed because you did not have the required experience whereas you possessed the other expertise. You wish to start a business some day and yet you are waiting to first have the right amount of money in order to start and you do not even know where you’ll get such. The thing is, if you go for it now and you don’t make it, people will laugh at you. You do not want that, so you decide to just be the face in crowd cheering for others while you wish to be there some day.
Success is for smart people, success is for the rich, you say. Underprivileged bunch like me does not amount to such, is how you try to console yourself. No one in the family has ever made it far anyway, so who am I to think that I can be the miracle worker here? For me to make it I need to speak like those people who went to private school or else no one to take me seriously. These help so much into not taking any step in life because of how worthless we make ourselves to be. This kills any self-confidence that may be there and yes, once that is gone, no one wants to be associated with you.
I can write up to a million words, but I think you now get the point and if you don’t get it, you never will, so I’ll conclude.
WINNERS HAVE FEARS TOO, BUT FEARS DO NOT STOP THEM FROM CHASING THEIR GOALS. SO IT IS UP TO YOU TO BE A WINNER OR A FAILURE.
