The Opinions of Others…

“The greatest fear in the world is the opinions of others. The moment you are unafraid of the crowd, you are no longer a sheep. You become a lion. A great roar rises in your heart, the roar of freedom.”


I have let fear stop me. The fear of failure (what would people think), the fear of success  (how can I maintain at this level of success).

Often times it causes me to shrink back…just a little bit. Nothing too noticeable to those around me, but I feel it. The uncertainty that drips down my neck like sweat on a hot simmering summer day.

As I continue on this journey of investing in myself and my dreams, I realize the battle usually starts within myself. I talk myself out of the next level….the back tracking comes from me.

If that is the case,  how do I expect to move forward when I face outward opposition? Opposition will come. That’s a part of life. What’s optional is if you choose to let that cripple you or propel you.

Let’s hope you learn how to fly.
