    Default The Greatest Barrier to Success is the Fear of Failure

    [FONT=Verdana]Sometimes in the midst of our personal struggles, we often look back and reminisce about the times when the world was right and the love of your life was standing right beside you guiding you and encouraging you. Even when times were tough, they were there to offer you a hug or maybe a simple

    Years back, I suffered from the “nice guy” syndrome. I would be the guy that was over sweet because I wanted to be different rather than ordinary but in a good way. What I didn’t know is that my sweetness, like eating too many sweets, tends to always make you sick. UGH! What I was doing was not being who I was. Being sweet came naturally to me but to others, I was too nice, too sweet or too eager to please. In short, I pushed people away because I was too agreeable. I was not a pushover but I was too agreeable.
    Welcome to my life when I was with my ex. Once of the things that makes me cringe a bit these days. I was constantly trying way too hard to be Mr. Nice Guy instead of being me. In some ways, I was crossing the fine line between too agreeable and pushover. Definitely NOT the guy I was when we first started dating. Hell, I wasn't even like that in the first year of our relationship. I lost myself completely in the relationship. Completely didn't like the person I became... the more the days go by, the more I'm realizing the breakup was the best thing to happen to me.
