Here is one question to ask yourself!
"What if I fail?"Aahaana asked.
Aahaana has many ambitions, lots of crazy dreams, and like many, she is scared.
Me: Have you never failed in life?
Aa: I have.
Me: What happened when you did?
Aa: I was upset, to begin with, but then moved on.
Me: What was the biggest worry before and after you failed?
Aa: It was always about what would others think. Would I look like a fool? Would people judge me as a failure?
Me: How many close contacts do you have in your phone book?
Aa: Phone book? What has my failures to do with my phone book?
Me: How many?
Aa: Around 300.
Me: How many would you have spoken to over the last two weeks?
Aa: Around 15.
Me: Please write down one failure stories of each of them.
Aahaana gets thinking and struggles even to get one.
Aa: Surprising! I don't even remember one! I do remember some success stories, though.
Me: What is surprising?
Aa: They must have failed, but I don't remember because I don't bother.
Me: What does that mean to you?
Aa: The fear of being judged is perhaps my own and not as big as I think it is. The world is too busy even to bother and notice if I fail.
What is stopping you today?
