What makes many people afraid to be extraordinary in terms of using their full potential, realizing
their innate power & attaining optimal success? What are they AFRAID of and why?
Probably the fear of having to keep measuring up to other people's expectations. It's not that one doesn't want to be successful or reach his/her potential, it's that once they do - then what? Others will then look to them with higher expectations and it's a lot of pressure.
Others fear failure so much they don't even try. We also live in a world that bombards us constantly with fear of all the things that are inherently supposed to be "wrong" with us. Many people probably feel they could never measure up enough to be successful. This message is great for selling people a lot of products they don't need to "improve" themselves, but not so great for people's self-esteem at the end of the day.
Also, societies definition of "success" often comes with the message that it's perfectly acceptable and justifiable to gain that success at the expense of others. Some avoid pushing themselves because they don't want to be selfish or harm anyone, they just simply want to live and let live.
Well, it is obviously because of their/our thought making us think that what other would think. Normally when we do something new or different we always get a thought of what other's reaction would be. Even though we are fully confident, one slightest negative reaction can tear us apart. Also people must encourage them instead of mocking them.
It all depends upon our thought of mind and how we take other’s reaction. I hope it helped you. Even I am afraid about your reaction
It's easy! People grow up thinking that they aren't smart enough because that is what they are told. Some get to feeling that they need to educate themselves and do so all of their lives. Some give up and quit trying. Some float between success and failure because they have accepted that there will be days like that.
It's too bad that most aren't lucky enough to have been told that they are a product of a loving God who made them special and they need to find their special gift using all the things they are exposed to that interests them. Building on their success and becoming what they were supposed to be by their creator.
Everyone needs to be told that even Moses who was not perfect in speaking became a great religious leader or, Caesar who had a blood disease because a leader, Alexander the Great, who started out poor became loved by his people, or a man named Noah built an Ark under daily criticism. Everyone needs to be told that they too might just be one of those beloved leaders some day. But, everyone isn't made to lead. Perhaps they were made to become a great orator, a great comedian, a great artist, a beloved teacher, a great healer or, one of many other avenue to pursue. They need to be set on a path of discovery to find that special and wondrous gift God granted especially for them at birth. Many haven't been taught that it is there waiting to be discovered. They need to be fortified to never let negative nay Sayers stop them in their discovery of themselves.
I'm afraid, no terrified of becoming like her, & her greedy buddies..It won't happen to me though, because I actually understand how they end up like they are..I mean I know a lot of people will disagree, but is she A) one of the richest women on the planet, or B) one of the greediest biatches on the planet "if" you had to pick one of them..If I had to bet my life on it I'd say "B" one of the greediest, & my opinion won't be affected by the people who will spring to her defence without even knowing her....Now I never said she was evil or even a bad person, no she just got far too much money which brings with it massive feelings of power..None of them can handle that much money or power, & it ends up completely ruining them spiritually..Just the same as the politicians can't handle that much power, unless they train their mind in order to handle/understand it first..Not my words folks, but loosely what Abraham Lincoln himself said. :-)
