Are you afraid?
If you’re not afraid, then you will not accomplish anything good. To be afraid is the first step into greatness.
- Norman Schwarzkopf
Yes, the great people will accomplish what need to be done when they are afraid.
In business, most will be afraid to fail. The more they have to go out of their comfort zone, the more afraid they become. Those who can keep going on doing what need to be done will earn the respect of those who have been there too. It’s a select group that only includes the best.
Do you want to be in that group? Do you have what is needed to join that group? Will you do what is needed to join that group?
If you answer yes to those three questions, then maybe you have a chance to reach that group. But if you fail in any of those, you’ll stay among the mass of the common people who work for those into that select group.
- Fernando Flores
Don’t be afraid to be afraid. Be afraid to be idle because you’re afraid.
