Are you afraid to raise your hand in the class to ask the teacher for your doubts just because your friends sitting at the back of you will call you, “Over smart kid?” Are you scared to raise questions thinking the question might be stupid and all will laugh at you? Are you scared of sitting at the first bench just because the teacher might ask questions about the lesson?
By the way, have you ever tried asking your doubts? Have you ever tried raising your hand? Have you ever tried sitting at the first bench? If not, try just for once and if yes, then let me ask this, “Do all the things that you though might happen, happened?” No. It’s all because of the fear that made you a stupid personal movie director.
Fear is all about imagining after the question, “What if I can’t?” If you want to kill your fear right now, ask this to yourself, “What if I can?”
There will be a lot of people who will tell you that you can’t do it, and their dream is to see you giving up. The remaining lies in you now, to fulfill their dream or your dream? If you are feeling low then you are supporting them in killing you, but if you just feel them as street dogs and keep doing what you do, you are plastering their useless mouths.
There will be people near you, who keeps discouraging you, whom you can’t put them away either. The only way to keep your calm now is to only listen to your heart, and then your heart will surely teach you how to stop listening while hearing. You don’t give a damn on how the other chicken piece looks like when you already see the biggest piece, and your heart have already ordered your right hand to take it down. When you start listening to your heart, you will become a very good DSLR which focuses only the important things and blur all the remaining street dogs.
Remember, you are supposed to give up ‘giving up.’ Don’t be down when people say that, they get disturbed when you call them and no one wants to talk to you. Don’t worry, now it’s call ‘disturbing call’ but it will soon be called ‘surprising your fans with phone calls.’
Keep following your heart; never be low when your neighbour says that you are good for nothing. One day your name will be the ‘proudest landmark’ that they will give to their friends when their residences are being asked. Even God can’t control these humans anymore, so it’s a fact that controlling them by you is too an impossible thing. Therefore, the best is to create some answers for your heart whenever they make your heart low.
Do you get up extremely early for jogging because you are scared to jog when everybody is up thinking you will be a topic of their conversation for the day? Don’t be scared anymore thinking what people might say, you got to only care what your heart says. One day, you will realize that the people who made you famous the most are those whom you were so scared of?
You must be at times smiling at yourself when you are in front of the mirror feeling great and handsome. But it never lasted long because you were just looking at the smile not through the smile.
Even if you are that kind of a person who never thinks of even getting into a fight, when your sister or your mother is hurt by some stranger, you will evolve yourself to a being that can even kill humans. Even if you are so scared of getting bad comment from your friends in your class for raising hands, once you get the comments, you will even have the guts to say, “Shut up,” on their faces.
Do you know from where all these guts come from? Nowhere, it’s already inside you. The fear of starting and trying was the one who have been holding you back. Everyone have the same strength, it’s all about who has the least fear.
Trust me; you are far stronger than what you think you are. You can’t be a failure until you stop trying. The most important thing for you right now is to take a decision to try.
Just start trying today itself, you will know how funny it is to see your enemies falling at your feet. Don’t worry if you fail, the trailer is just getting started.
