Fear is a Myth anyway

Have you ever had that experience where you wanted to express your opinion to a group of big deals, but then you did not, because you feared that you may be wrong or somebody would disagree with you or you just got scared without any reason at all?

Been there.

Well I am gonna share an experience. The people I meet these days after coming to this country are different in that regard. Different then me. Those who are in good positions especially.
I talk to this guy, who have more than double my experience but suggests a silly idea to me. I refused the suggestion and gave him the reason saying why it is wrong, and I know he had learnt something new from me, but still, he wouldn't admit it and keep hitting me with other of his reasons about why he was right, even if i know, he is not confident about them now.

Then I thought about it. What if he had never suggested me that idea of his. I would never have told him my reasons, and he would never have learnt about it. Just because he was fearless of being wrong, and foolish enough to blurt it out what he was thinking, and was ready to learn new things in the process, he was growing every day.

What do you want to do before you die?
