Research first established the reality of the fear of success, of reaching one’s goals, a couple of decades ago. The findings, at the time, related to fear of success in women, and the results proved incredibly controversial.Since then, however, most scientists and psychologists have come to agree that the fear of success exists for both men and women. Fear of success is similar to the fear of failure. They have many of the same symptoms, and both kinds of fear hold you back from achieving your dreams and goals.Signs of Fear of SuccessThe biggest problem for many people is that their fear of success is largely unconscious. They just don’t realize that they’ve been holding themselves back from doing something great. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
A mason of Lot 3 Mandela Avenue, Georgetown, walked out of the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts a free man after a narcotic charge against him was dismissed by Magistrate Fabayo Azore.The case was dismissed on the grounds that the Prosecution failed to prove its case against Frank Kowlessar, 36.Magistrate Azore told the court that she found the statements by witnesses conflicting and confusing.It was alleged that Kowlessar had 34.5grams of cannabis in his possession for the purpose of trafficking.Kowlessar made his first appearance on July 5, 2016 before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan where he pleaded not guilty to the charge and was placed on remand.The Prosecution’s case had stated that Kowlessar threw a black bag on a neighbour’s roof when he saw Police ranks approaching him. The ranks got the black bag from the neighbour’s roof which revealed several small Ziploc bags that contained stems, leaves and seeds.Defence Attorney Paul Fung-A Fat had relayed to the court that his client bears no knowledge of the cannabis and in fact it was found two lots away from where the accused resides.
“Why are they so excited?” he asked, his tone carrying a note of weariness. “I guess they’re having fun.” A frown. “Fun? Boring.” I shrugged. “Well, not to them. You know, I remember when you used to like to toss a ball around, too.” A raven-haired little girl toddled up toward the net and threw an orange ball a few inches forward, hitting the wobbly plastic stand instead. As the ball bounced back and careened down the driveway, she raced after it. A rush of memories of dropped balls and enthusiastic giggles charged out of my brain’s dusty archives. How could I have forgotten them so soon? Middle childhood had brought a nascent maturity and a growing wisdom to my son, the tools he needs to face the challenges of classroom and field. But, middle childhood had claimed in return the sense of awe, of fun, that now radiated from the youngsters before us. I found myself longing to mother another toddler again. George suddenly dashed into our garage, emerging a minute or two later with his bicycle helmet on and his unicycle under his arm. Balancing himself against our car, he mounted the solitary seat above the shiny red wheel and launched himself down the driveway. Balls were suddenly still as the children gathered to watch the captivating spectacle. “What’s that?” squeaked a high voice. “A motorcycle,” insisted the group’s leader, feisty 3-year-old Maya. “Hey, George, can I ride it, too?” “A unicycle. It’s too hard. No brakes, no hands.” The lopsided grin was back, as George sat proudly on his precarious perch. The oohs and aahs from the youngsters inspired George to show off a few more riding tricks before he dismounted with a flourish and landed lightly on his feet. “But I’ll throw a couple of balls with you, OK?” George melted into the pre-schoolers’ game with an unaccustomed gentleness. Boosting smaller players so the net would be in reach. Cheering just as loud when those rare baskets were made. And laughing from his heart to share a toddler’s joy. I’d forgotten how much fun very young children could be. And so had my not-so-very-old son. But, the gift that comes to us with each new life and each new child, the gift of wonder, was for a moment ours again as we let ourselves remember when our own world was so wondrously young.

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! HE stood silently behind the wooden post next to our driveway, peeking around it, with a lopsided grin and curious eyes. The other children were less than 4 years old, and, as a 9-year-old, it wouldn’t do to seem too interested in their play. The rickety plastic basketball hoop was almost up to his brow, but still a far-off target for the tiny gigglers who enthusiastically, clumsily threw oversized brightly colored balls at its rim. I sidled over to him, still keeping watch on my temporary charges, and whispered. “Hey, George, you want to play?” The absurdity of my question led to a well-deserved eye-roll and head shake. “Babies,” he added, to underline the point. I nodded. “Yeah, I’d forgotten how little kids can be.” I put my arm around the shoulders of my own little boy, now almost as tall as me. “They grow so fast.”
