I think one of the things that stops people from doing what they want to do is the fear of failure. No one wants to fail at anything and having failed my high school exams I know just too well how much failing can hurt. I think a lot of people are scared of doing things that they want to do in life because they are afraid of failing. When you tell people who do not believe in you that you have a dream, they will just laugh at you and every moment you are working on your dreams you feel like you have an audience who are just waiting for you to fail and come to you and say, we told you you will never make it. When this happens what do a lot of people do? they give up on their dreams all together. They try once, they fail once and they give up on their dreams. The day I failed my high school exams the dream to go to University was born, I still had people reminding me that I had failed but that did not matter I knew what I wanted to do with my life and I was going to get out there and just do it.
A few days ago I got of the bus with these two elderly gentlemen they slowly walking in front of me. They were talking about all the things that they could do if they were young again, I started walking at their pace to listen to the conversation. These two men had big dreams but they were both afraid of failure so they did not follow their plans through. I think that a lot of people do not realise that failing is part of the process if you want to be successful. You are going to go to certain places and they will tell you that are not good enough. You might go to job interview after job interview without getting any of the jobs you go for. If you give up, do you think you will be able to get any job? If you keep going you are giving yourself a chance to succeed. No matter how diffuclt thongs might look at the moment, keep going to give your self a chance to experience a brighter tomorrow.
