If you said no, I believe you are lying to yourself. When you say, “I’m afraid to try that, or do this, or whatever,” you are being a difficult person. You can’t lead a successful career or life if you are not able to take risk. And the reason for this fear is that you don’t want to be blamed, either by yourself or others, for not succeeding.
This boils down to poor and undeveloped self awareness, accoutability and leadership. If you don’t communicate well with yourself and are not able to take risk, how can you communicate with others and get others to buy into your ideas?
Comment please – I’d love to hear what you have to say!! Marsha Petrie Sue
