the journey of my fear

My hands sweat, heart beat goes up like anything , head aches ……………….it happens when I stand before the audience to talk …years ago…this happens after long hours of preparation, and sleepless night……this is not about my language, not about my knowledge, but it is fear inside me to stand and talk before the crowd…. after giving the speech…I used to doubt myself, whether the message reached the audience….then when I started saying “hello to my fear within me” … then the preparation time went down drastically !! , started speaking with more freedom….

even then.. I was always wondering.. how I can make people more interactive when I talk…? …till i started to say “hello to my fear of people asking questions” when I talk…

even then…I was wondering …whatever I am talking..is it touching the people and making a difference  to people when  I talk ? …till I got trained to say “hello to the fear of listening to the people’s  opinion about me and my talk”  ..

even then.. I was wondering.. am I communicating to a large crowd…till I got trained to discover..my past is constraining to say “hello to large crowd”


where is my fear..? it is still there?…yes of course it comes with me…as I said many hello to my fear…it has become a companion!!


Your own creation…!

“There are certain things you can only know by creating them for yourself.”…..Werner Erhard

the biggest challenge I ever faced

the biggest challenge I ever faced..is confronting myself, confronting the view of myself, and to be authentic about myself…and this is the discovery I made from Landmark forum…

Yes…when I confronted…It was a struggle…and the struggle led to freedom…!

Shy to be in the limelight….!?

The fear is to project ourselves, ask the questions boldly in a forum and at times even shy take the credit for great effort…Some of us may outwardly show this fear, but some of us have this fear and still project ourselves…but what if we are doing great job and still be silent/invisible performers….and still be shy/fearful to project ourselves…!

In the world when people strive to get visibility…irrespective of whether they are capable or not?….What real leaders do? Do they exploit these silent performers? or do they really credit these silent performer..It is a great revelation what GREAT Leaders do..Jim Collins articulates in his research book  “Good to Great” what really great leaders do and how they are different?

Thanks to the  HBR blog, providing insights on Silent performers.. http://hbr.org/2014/05/managing-the-invisibles/ar/1?referral=00134






Beware in highway toll gates

While I was traveling to Trichy from chennai, I purchased one way toll pass, in 3 toll gates they gave me old pass, and I have to ask them to give the corrected toll pass, recently I got the date stamped as 2011 and some anonymous vehicle number, I think people make use of this opportunity, especially when the toll is crowded and when we are in hurry,

As a leader, at least we can be careful in getting the correct tickets..!
