You have all the passion and energy and dedication to make this project work. You work 12-16 hours a day for nine months…
One day, you suddenly broke down by just one loudly No from your colleague, your teammate. He said No to you when you demanded his action, and he commented that you are not capable of doing what you do in front of your team – 20 colleagues.
“How could he do this to me? He is supposed to be my loyal workmate.” You felt lost face, like an imposter, and felt humiliated by wrongful comments…
You wanted to know why.
After many conversations, dialogues, and a few sleepless weeks, you learned that it’s the fear of change brought your colleague’s rebel. It got little to do with you.
However, by being wrongly accused it somewhat made you feel that you no longer need to pretend to know everything any more. The ego you had is disappearing. You feel much more breathable, more freedom coming to your way.
You break free.
You don’t need to pretend to be something you are not.
You don’t need to live other’s life, begin to live truly.
You don’t need to worry making mistakes.
You have stretched and grown more.
Vulnerability makes you stronger, braver, more present.
