A lot of people want success but don’t want all the responsibilities that come with it. Responsibilities often include leadership, dedication, teaching, and management.
High expectations test the desire to go further. People may back down to maintain the familiarity of the status quo. But you’re actually better off saying yes to advancement and figuring it all out afterward.
Talent builds confidence but is in ineffective at reducing anxiety. The better you get at doing your best and accepting the fear of responsibility the more likely you’ll continue to be successful. Relax and just go.
