The fear of what others think will become less and less controlling. Time does heal, but only if you practice.
So many people have ideas and dreams that don‘t come true because they‘re afraid to talk to people, afraid to put themselves out there and be bold and direct, afraid they‘re going to look like idiots. They believe too much is at stake in damaging their image. That fear of what others think, of embarrassment and rejection by your peers, could be the most critical issue in your life to handle. Remember this:
You should care about other people, but not about what they think about you.
I urge you to do the following:
1. Watch or read Dr. King‘s final speech, and model it yourself. In other words, say it with the same facial expressions, body language, volume, accent, and energy as he did. Model him perfectly. Repeat it again and again, with the same passion as he had. Do it daily. You will find that you become bolder and stronger.
2. Practice handling objections by yourself, with a friend, or with a group of others who similarly want to learn how to be great communicators and negotiators. Your fear will subside.
3. Identify which little voices belong to you, and which debilitating one belong to other people. Make a list of where they each came from and what the experience was that created them. You will find it very freeing.
4. Ask yourself this question: If you had unlimited money and time, what would you do (after the vacations and partying) that would bring joy to your life, give you a sense of purpose, and would be advantageous to others? Perhaps that‘s what you should be doing now!
