As my coach said this to me
My first reaction was quick denial
For years I had been like this & it had worked well for me.
I was highly competitive & successful in my career, would manage to go ahead of other people. Probably it was my insecurity of being a loser or failure that fuelled me to be like this.
I had the desire to win always.
I remember my son once said to me
“Dad why do you only play to win?”
Those words hit me hard like a slap on my face.
It was very tough for me to see others going ahead of me.
Strangely enough shortly after this I became an entrepreneur & failed miserably. I could see everyone going ahead of me and I was left far behind. My worst fear had come true. I became a laughing stock & a big Zero:)
It was the worst yet the best moment of my life.
I was humbled!
This is my story
What is yours?
Are you being a brilliant jerk?
Are you also scared of others going ahead of you?
Are you scared of failure?
