Everyone has experienced criticism sometime during their life. The overall effects can be devastating to your future personal achievement by destroying initiative and use of one’s ability to think out of the box.
Napoleon Hill expressed the following symptoms of fear:
Self-consciousness – being shy with regard to meeting strangers.
Lack of poise – poor posture, memory, voice control and nervousness in the presence of others.
Personality – lacking firmness of decision, ability to express opinions and side-stepping issues.
Lack of initiative – failure to embrace opportunities and having confidence in one’s own ideas.
Lack of ambition – mental and physical laziness.
Can you see how all of these would have impact on the development of your dream to experience the Workamping lifestyle?
Self-consciousness & Lack of poise go together with reference to your ability to meet new people. You will find that one of the greatest benefits of living the Workamping lifestyle is the opportunities you will have to meet new people and develop new relationships.
The last three above, Personality, Lack of initiative and Lack of ambition will definitely determine if you ever move past the early dreaming stage of becoming a Workamper. If you recall when we discussed the four steps to freedom many blog posts back, we talked about getting through the Terror Barrier. The barrier is the deciding point where many bounce back to their comfort zones and never experience the freedom of their dreams. This will require that you have strength in these areas. The lack of initiative and lack of ambition will definitely be a deciding factor of whether you provide yourself with the opportunity to enter the lifestyle one day.
You will experience criticism from many, including your family who loves you when you share your dream to experience the Workamping lifestyle. Realize that you must not fall subject to the fear of this criticism. It is there life not yours! It is your dream, not theirs! Don’t let someone’s criticism destroy your future dreams.
Until next time…
