All eyes on the new challenge posted. A momentary pause, "Can we do this?". Everyone exchanges glances, showing signs of hesitation. I wonder what they are thinking. No one says a word, except... "I don't think we can do this". And another one "I think we should pass this off for now". Until I hear Murli, our savior, speak up "Hey, I have a solution. It may sound crazy, but I know it will work". And we listen to Murli's story and at the end of it... A loud cheer. "Thats such a cool idea, and so easy. Why did I not think of it?"
So who are all these people? Are they only imaginary or for real. How often do you come across situations where you find yourself in the "Others" shoe or as the likes of "Murli". At the end of the job, don't we all draw the same conclusion. So why that hesitation, why the cringe that stops us from thinking or contributing. Why that Fear ... the fear of nothing.
The source for this fear may be different for everyone, but by looking at Murli, we could learn more of how we could remove our own fear. Murli was born in a middle class family, has struggled throughout his life. He has been through many adversities, but never did he feel let down. Every single time he kept going on, for he knew the was always something good in the offing. Every time he faced an obstacle he found his way out of it and moved ahead. He calls his obstacles just another experience. Experiences may be good or bad, but always carry a lesson. It is how we interpret and absorb it, is what really matters. Like Murli there are many many stories, stories of people who fear nothing and have made a name for themselves.
