This week I was thinking: when is it that we make the most progress with whatever we’d like to achieve?
In short, when your desire to achieve something is stronger than the fear you have of doing it, this is when you make progress. And if it isn’t exactly fear, then let’s say ‘the obstacles in your way.’
If you want to get that job or succeed in your English exams or talk to that girl standing next to you in the bar, then ultimately you will do it if your desire is stronger than your fear of doing it.
Sure, you may feel vulnerable, revealing a few weakness about yourself to others and to yourself, but, again, if your desire is that strong you’ll get there in the end.
What do you think? And do you think you have the desire to truly do what you would like to achieve?
