The Stereotypes Are Scared If You Have This One Attitude

Embrace the temporary shocks of uncertainty.

  • “How will my community treat me for this?”
  • “It is scary. No one has ever succeeded at this before.”
  • “I will be challenging a lot of people’s mindsets.”
  • “I will face a lot of backlashes.”
  • “People will label me a misfit.”
  • “What if the rejections are all I get?”
  • “Luck won’t favour me.”
  • “My family won’t support me.”
  • “I have no one. I am a total dud.”

Bold attitude is scary.

Internal validations trump the external ones.

You create opportunities instead of seeking them.
