On my way out of the office, I saw an old classmate back in Uni. He was busy with some business associates at that time, so we simply gave each other the customary head-nod.
Althought there was really nothing out-of-the-ordinary about that meeting, what made it quiet peculiar was the timing, I just saw an old classmate who came from one of the most affluent families of my batch (in fact they own the building where I worked) and here I was on my way to meet a friend (one of my ex-players, Carlo) and be his financial coach. Yes, a financial coach…
When Carlo asked to meet me a couple of weeks ago, I was really excited about helping him manage his money. But seeing my former classmate made me doubt if I am qualified to even talk about money matters with him. How can I, a mere salary-earning, public-commuting employee, possibly have the gall to talk about $$$?
As I waited and contemplated at the cafe, I came to this very simple answer…
It does not matter that my salary fails in comparison to other people. It does not matter that I am not as “successful” as the next guy. All that matters is that I can contribute, that I have this opportunity to help someone. What I need to focus on is getting past my insecurities…
How about you? Have you ever been in a situation where your insecurities prevented you from doing something?
