This was the first interview of a series – The Statesman as CEO. It would determine the fate of his series as well his career. The young journalist put on his best three-piece suit and rehearsed his questions a dozen times.
However, he was very nervous, jet-lagged and couldn’t stop thinking about all the things that could go wrong. He told himself, ‘You will ruin it like this!’ He took out his pen and carefully wrote above all his rehearsed questions: ‘Relax! Smile! This is a blessing, a treat and an honor.’ Right then, the Chancellor walked in. The journalist took a deep breath and smiled. The Chancellor smiled back. They were off to a good start!
This week, let’s remember to drive out fear in ourselves so that we can fulfill our potential.
