Why do we prefer to listen to others rather then ourselves?
When I think about it, the only word that comes to my mind is FEAR.
If we do what others say and if something doesn’t happen according to the plan we will have someone to blame for.
On the other hand, if we follow our opinion we will be fully responsible for everything that happens (good or not so good).
In the book “The art of non-conformity” by Chris Guillebeau, he asks this simple question:
- What would you do if you were not afraid?
Start by answering to this question and start making your own map.
The others will eventually follow your map. Who knows?
