The Fear Of Not Achieving

Many of us imprison ourselves in a self-made world of denial, not able to confront our own failings. We end up blaming others, or the world for our own shortcomings, just to avoid our deepest fears, like shame and a sense of worthlessness.

Our inability to confront our feelings of inadequacy is partly due to the consumer culture we live in, where our worth is measured by our wealth, possessions and achievements. This makes it impossible to be okay with being sub-standard and incompetent.

Being inadequate is a fearful emotion, which can make the chest tighten up, eyes heavy and heartbeat fast. The head spins and the mind constantly tells us that something is wrong.

If we can move past this feeling, we can start to appreciate the good things, and look at the situation objectively, with clarity of mind.
