I cannot express to you how true this is. As human beings, we are constantly being held back—by our own thoughts.
We get stage fright because we’re afraid of getting laughed at.
We don’t want to apply for jobs because we’re afraid we won’t get them.
We don’t want to start our own businesses because we think we’re going to fail.
We’re afraid to go for what we’re passionate or dream about because we’re afraid we’ll fail.
That’s constantly what keeps us from achieving are dreams, and is also what often keeps us from success. We don’t take chances because of the chance things won’t go the way we want them to.
What’s your take?
