Was chilling with 2 friends yesterday and we chatted everything under the sky especially after 8 pints of beer among the two. I was having apple juice!!
One question popped up. What are your fears?
I took a while to digest……
My mind ran through several things, my ‘Ang’, my money, my possessions, etc……
My reply came with “If I loose my ‘Ang”, my house, my money and left with nothing that I need to depend on payouts from the government, that will be fearful.”
My friend, T, quickly interjected: Is that all? House and money?
BK: It is the loss of pride that I am afraid, perhaps. The money and house are simply indicators. And actually, if anyone can verbalise their fears, does it still consider as a fear?
T: My biggest fear is that someone now comes along and offer me a corporate job, earning easily say $7-8K a month.
To give some perspective, T left his high flying job in a MNC to be an entrepreneur, a complete loss of stable income. And if I may add, 9 out of 10 aspiring entrepreneurs fail. T’s entrepreneurial efforts are not seeing much light at this moment. So the temptation of going back to the corporate world is luring. It also means that he had failed to fulfill his dreams.
So in the spirit of Halloween, what are your fears in life?
