Too many people out there worry about what others think about them based on who they associate with and what kind of ideas they embrace. The judgment of other people is not your responsibility. If you start worry about what other people think of you, you’ll never get anything else accomplished.
Continuing the break down of dealing with the individual fears that prevent people from taking action on ideas with today’s topic Fear of Judgment.
People assert judgment over the weirdest things.
When I was in high school, classmates would judge each other over the brand of jeans they wore or the kinds of shoes on their feet. As adults they judge co-workers and assert their opinion that some projects are beneath them and then turn around and say someone thinks they’re better than anyone else because they’re working on some other project.
I think people lapse into judging others because they’re too afraid to take any risks themselves.
It’s a lot easier to insult people and rip on them for trying something new than it is to summon the courage to try something new themselves because they might fail — or other people might judge them about it.
