It is the emotional and mental weakness.
World is full of unsuccessful people with talent. It is a pity to see their potential going waste because of poor attitudes.
Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude…… Thomas Jefferson
Life challenges are a test of your mental toughness. The thoughts of fear, guilt, uncertainties etc. stop you from making progress in life. Sometimes, intense negative thoughts make you feel paralyzed and out of control and you start ignoring important things.
