Maybe you have been thinking about something for a long time, without acting on it. Maybe, these thoughts seem to have gotten hold of you, more than you feel you have gotten hold of them, because despite your lack of action, they remained close to you all this while. If this is the case; If you have a vision, or a dream, I wish you will find a place where you are not afraid of failing, not tensed at the importance of success, and that you just try.
Because truth is, unless you do, there will be no success, and no joy of accomplishment. Truth is, you will start succeeding when you let go of this fear and tensions, and are relaxed enough to interact with others with an empty, open mind, freed of thoughts about yourself, freed of the brakes these thoughts put on your talents. May you drive without your brakes on.
When you get rid of your fear of failure, your tensions about succeeding… you can be yourself. Relaxed. You’ll no longer be driving with your brakes on.
— Antony de Mello
