Am I The Only One?

As success becomes imminent, a new fear is born

Confidence
Yesterday, the 14-year old in the blue and white checked shirt demonstrated remarkable calm under pressure.

 

As success becomes imminent, a new fear is born. The fear of looking arrogant. A confident entrepreneurial startup founder must exude confidence.

Exude.

That’s pretty intense. And to some, intimidating. It reminds people of their decaying dreams.

It’s time to follow the fatherly advice i have consistently shared with our 14-year old.

Why focus on the ones who will say jealous things? And we all know how those behind-someone’s-back conversations go, because we’ve all been jealous, so it’s no secret.

It’s the difficult path that others laugh at.

Not because it’s difficult, but because it’s lonely.

And scary.
