What Are You Afraid Of?
For the first 6 months of 2018, I'll be sitting down with 24 people to ask them the same question, what are you afraid of?
Molly Tavoletti, 1/26/2018 - Failure.
Molly defined failure as things left unachieved, goals not reached, success not had. For her, the fear of failure is the fear of not husting hard enough, and the fear of not realizing what you are truly capable of. She credits New York City with providing the motivation and the spark for her ambition.
Red Gaskell, 1/10/2018 - Doubt & death.
Red answered first with death, doubt followed. I asked why doubt, and he shared that he wasn't afraid of doubt exactly, but how it can get in the way. His fear of doubt stems from it's potential to stop him from pursuing his passions, his dreams; it's ability to undermine his ambitions and desires. His fear, broken down to it's core, is the fear of not realizing his potential, not achieving all that he wants to acheive in the limited time that he has.
