Fear of the Unknown -- An Inhibitor to Success

In the recent past, I have been approached by quite a number of people seeking business/entrepreneurial advice from me but they are not willing to do what it takes to achieve their respective visions.  They desire success and well being but are not ready to move out of their current comfort zones.

Tim Wrightman, a former All-American UCLA football player, tells a story about how, as a rookie lineman in the National Football League, he was up against the legendary pass rusher Lawrence Taylor. Taylor was not only physically powerful and uncommonly quick but a master at verbal intimidation.

Looking young Tim in the eye, he said, "Sonny, get ready. I'm going to the left and there's nothing you can do about it."

Wrightman coolly responded, "Sir, is that your left or mine?"

The question froze Taylor long enough to allow Wrightman to throw a perfect block on him.
