“The man who fears losing has already lost.”
- George R.R. Martin.
What stops people the most? It’s fear. What stops people from achieving? It’s the same Fear.
Fear of losing, fear of being ridiculed, fear of failures has stopped people from achieving and pursuing what they want in life.
The moment you fear losing, it means you have already lost in the game. Don’t give in to fear. Instead, let go of fear and try.
Sometimes there will be fear and self-doubts whether or not we will make it. But, if we let the fear take over, we lose that moment without even trying.
‘I tried, but I lost’ differs from ‘I never tried because I am afraid’ . Learn the huge meaning that both things have.
Fear comes because of different factors. The main being, low self-esteem and low self-confidence you have in yourself. It’s what’s stopping you from moving forward.
If there is a lack of knowledge there is a fear and hesitation to take things forward. But even those who are less skilled have succeeded because they are self-confident and fearless. They don’t stop with fear. They try.
I can attribute many things to my fear. But I have to get out of it. If I stay in fear, I lose many positive things in life. I could lose opportunities and possibilities when I am afraid.
Another mistake people do is, ‘what if I lose’. The ones who are fearful of losing have already lost. There is not much to appreciate for them except the losing.
The ones who are without fear will try and try. Even if they lose, they are ready to take it.
We can find many reasons to justify our fear of doing things.
Let’s stay fearless.
"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow'."
~ Mary Anne Radmacher
Courage is not always in big acts. The thought about ‘To try again’ is the courage that roars by being silent.
You can easily quit. Or, you can say that ‘I don’t know. I am not sure about doing it again’. But, when you chose to try again tomorrow, you are already on top. This is a courage that sizes top mountains to a pebble. It’s not an exaggeration,, but the truth.
Courage can move mountains. Courage comes from self-confidence, faith, and self-belief.
We can see courage in little acts. To try again, to learn again and to pursue again and again is the biggest courage. The beauty is, this courage happens silently within us.
Outside, it may look all quiet. On the inside, the courage keeps your heart and spirit alive with a fire burning inside.
Boasting is not courage. To silently carry on inaction is courage. Courage doesn’t speak or roar. It’s a silent spirit that keeps the fire in us alive and burning.
Courage is not always about dreams, goals, and finishing tasks. Apart from the big, courage is found in small acts in everyday life.
Just getting through the day 'Productively' and 'Peacefully' is courage in a way. To say to yourself that you will be better tomorrow is courage.
To accept mistakes takes courage. To come out of it by trying again reveals the height of courage we have inside our hearts.
Courage is in all walks of life. It is happening every day silently inside every heart.
