People are mostly afraid to fail, to be wrong, to make mistakes, but there are also people that are afraid to be great, to succeed, to make something memorable, to create, to innovate.
People who fear being great are doing it because once you have done something really good, something memorable, the next time you will have to step up and come up with something of the same value, at least.
Also, creating something great means that things will change, that you will have to adjust to the new situation. This means adjusting to something new, getting out of your comfort zone and exposing yourself.
Fear comes from the unknown, from the fact that something is going to change but no one knows exactly in what way. This is one of the things that success will do. It’s going to change everything and some people are too scared to even try it.
Doing something great will change your life. It’s up to you what it’s going to be like.
