There’s one dangerous fear that crumbles people’s confidence more than anything else in the world. This one thing stops people from becoming millionaires, it boxes people into a life they don’t really like but are too scared to change.
If you’re not careful, this will destroy your ability to live to your fullest potential. Leaving you to become a victim of life… Never really going for what you truly want.
It’s the fear of Judgement
People naturally love to judge. Pressing one’s opinion on another person is the easiest way to take the heat off yourself while making you feel like the superior person in a situation.
But it’s not the judging that’s the problem, it’s how a person thinks about judgment… It’s YOU.
Hear me out… For many, our biggest fear is being judged. The fear itself comes from the idea that you will be judged by another for doing something. Maybe if you do/wear/try/say something different or what someone might not see as ‘normal’. This dangerous fear is more of a worry or an insecurity, and it crumbles people.
We’re all guilty of not doing something based on what other people might think of us… But it’s the worst thing we could actually do for ourselves!
Because most people are only ever worried about 2 things when it comes to judgment…
2. What others think of them.
Think about it. All of us worry about ourselves and what others think about us at some point. But this fear you have is bullshit. It’s a dangerous fear based on what people “might” think of you. When in truth, they’re likely thinking of themselves.
Now is when you might say “Ok Nate. What if I do something like you say, and get judged just as I expected?” …
Then think about this:
Remember I said, “People are always thinking about themselves and worried what others think of them.” So if you ever fall victim to judgment or people try tearing you down for doing something different. Realize they are likely acting like that because what you have done makes them look at themselves and feel insecure about themselves.
…It can even make them worry about what you might be thinking about them. Even though you’re really just thinking of yourself. – Did I lose you there? lol
Fear of judgment can cripple even the most confident person. But a realisation that others reactions are only ever based on themselves, can kill your worry altogether.
Don’t live your life worried about what others “might” think.. Chances are they’re not thinking about you at all.
