Ang daming taong gustong mag-umpisa ng businesss, pero marami naman taong hindi nagpapatuloy.
Ang daming taong magaganda ang plano sa buhay, pero hanggang ngayon wala pa rin action.
Ang daming taong gusto na lumagay sa tahimik at mag-asawa, pero hanggang ngayon single pa rin.
Bakit ganoon? Maraming plano at hangarin pero walang ginagawa!
Ang tawag ko diyan ay FEAR!
FEAR OF FAILURE
You might fail? Isn’t the time when you didn’t try is also the moment you failed? Because you let an opportunity pass, you failed to get up and prove what you can really do. You often find yourself in a situation where doubts arise and fears dismay you. Failing is emotionally painful because you will now experience the…
FEAR OF REJECTION
You are so afraid the people might say no to you. No one wants to be rejected. My question to you now is, “So what if you got rejected?” Yes it hurts for a moment. BUT rejection will make you stronger and better so you will know how to minimize and handle it the next time around.
Another fear is the…
FEAR OF NOT LIVING UP TO THE EXPECTATION OF OTHERS
You start too doubt your own capabilities and ask yourself questions like, “Am I good enough?” “Am I already prepared for this?” “Can I really do it?”

Lahat naman tayo nag-uumpisa sa walang alam. The important thing for us to do is just to START & TRY IT OUT!
FEAR OF FURTHER RESPONSIBILITIES
Are you really doubting yourself or you are just afraid of taking more responsibilities. Taking more responsibility won’t hurt especially if you know it can make you mature.
Finally, you might be experiencing the…
FEAR OF CHANGING ROUTES
We are afraid to change routes because we are already comfortable on where we are.
We usually like to live in comfort that’s why getting out from it and anything that requires change fears us a lot. We do not have an idea of what we are capable of doing that is why we become stagnant or we remain in a status quo.
Ito yung hindi na tayo na-dedevelop to maximize our fullest potential because we are contented with our routine— with what we usually do.
Don’t get me wrong, playing safe is different from keeping yourself safe, na kung alam mong mapapahamak ka o may ibang maapektuhan, syempre it’s okay to think twice, but if it’s holding you back to learn new things, to become a better person, that is the time you decide if you are going to take the risk or not.
Fear pulls us away from the goals and aspirations that we want to achieve, kaya nakakahinayang na akala mo risk siya when in fact, it is a blessing that you walked away from.
So what is holding you back in the first place?
THINK. REFLECT. APPLY.
Are you really happy and fulfilled with your current situation?
Can you say that you have found something you want to do for the rest of your life?
If not, what type of fear is holding you back?
