Fear of failure remains one of the biggest roadblock to success. Anything you see as an accomplishment, remains elusive to you, thanks to a little hesitation, a little holding back on your part. It affects our career and relationships, and we are unable to take that one step that would make all the difference. Constant high expectations, from ourselves, from others make us believe that it’s too much work. Our energy is sapped by trying to get that relationship to work or that business on track. And we give up.
But I feel the bigger culprit is our EGO. We are judgemental and constantly comparing ourselves with others. We have high expectations whereas we ourselves lack sincerity. Deep down we are aware of all this. There is a lacking in our own efforts. This holding back at a crucial juncture, when a decision could change the entire scenario, is actually the feeling of lack of sincerity. When you know you haven’t done enough, or worked harder. The fear of failure suddenly seeps in.
Friends, make a small change in yourselves today. Accept you have an ego that is working against you. You can turn all that around by this change. I called it a small change, but it is huge. And there is no way we can kill our ego. It is there for our rise as well as downfall. But when it gets too negative, it is better to recognise it and tame it.
