An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Fear of Failure is Obstacle to Growth

The big secret about successful human beings is that they’ve eliminated the fear of failure. To imitate these people we have to get rid first, of fear of criticism. We have to learn techniques that help us to overcome our passive inertia by doing something. It is as simple and as easy as that!

The technique of the master has always been dynamic action. For instance a successful martial artist like Bruce Lee tried different approaches to train not only his body, but also his mind. He dared to be different and he succeeded. His traditional Chinese masters didn’t agree with his teaching methods, neither that he taught non Orientals. He didn’t mind being rejected by people he knew that from above he got a green light. He broke with tradition. Famous chefs, actors like James Dean were always bold. So, as you can see it is by doing not by just thinking big that is the highway to live a successful life. Our actions won’t satisfy everybody.

Allow me, please to use my personal experience. In 1976 here in Mexico it became obligatory to take a course about the development of our human resources. Over thirty people were enrolled in this first course. Must of these people were company owners, some of them had high positions only three of us were supervisors. The lecturer was a famous motivator. The first day I decided to change my previous passive behavior regarding participating in everything! I stared introducing myself to these very important people my handshakes were done with strength and very confident I made eye contact with everybody. Whenever the opportunity rose about volunteering in games dealing with tam work I was the first person to raise his hand. From the second day one I became the instructor aid.

The next opportunity was on mystical work. Every Tuesday I used to attend guided relaxation classes. One evening the instructor didn’t show up. Somebody ask for somebody to sit in for the instructor my response was immediate. That night I discovered that I was good at this. Since then I became the chosen instructor for guided relaxation and meditation. You are reading this article because I dared to start writing about my ideals and convictions. I do know my limitations because I’ve never lived in an English speaking country. This fact didn’t stop me from trying. In the process I’m learning every day to manage to improve my writing skills.

I dare to share a lot of extremely beautiful psychic and mystical experiences. My health has greatly improved because of this action. I’m also never afraid to express my love to beautiful humankind.

As you can see in spite of adverse situations, shortcomings and obstacles I’ll do my very best.
