Two of my biggest fears right now:
- Being told I’m not good enough or I don’t have what it takes
- Possessing a flaw that everyone around me notices while I’m completely unaware (think Emperor’s New Clothes).
I know the antidotes, but it seems to take experience, not knowledge, to overcome the fears. Number 1 can be overcome with self-confidence. Number 2 with trusted mentors and friends.
I think both of these are interrelated. I’m excited for the experiences that will tamp down the fears.
What are you afraid of?
