Nothing crippled a man’s journey to success other than fear and doubt. As humans, we are all meant to have fear, fear of uncertainty and fear of the unknown, but if we are going to reach our fullest height, our zenith we shouldn’t give in to fear. Fear not well manage will hold you hostage keep you stagnated, and make you function or operate at the least of your competence level. Those who fall victims of fear are always having excuses at their slip. E.g. I don’t have enough resources, I wasn’t ready, It’s wasn’t my fault, it was raining, it wasn’t the right time, am too young, am too old, am black, am white, am coloured to name a few. Oprah Winfrey once said, Sexism is the greatest deterrent for sexism and racism.
People don’t just grow up to become fearful of taking action or attempting things outside their comfort zone, fear can be instilled by parents from childhood. Negative remarks like “You are good for nothing” you can’t ever get anything done right, you are naughty and that’s why always fail your exams, do you think money grows on trees, you are so dumb, to name a few. All of these condescending and negative remark sink into the child’s subconscious mind and this completely alter their expectations from life.
