The Things That Hurt Our Effectiveness The Most Are The Hidden Things
The gap that exists between our potential and our performance is various forms of interference. Interference serves as a hindrance to our individual performance.
Interference is a phenomenon that is often hidden and unique to what is observable or measureable from outsiders. It consists primarily of “internal” factors that limit us from achieving what we believe we should or could achieve. Sources of interference can include fear of failure, the “imposter syndrome”, anxiety, confidence issues, people pleasing, an unhealthy dependence on external factors (e.g., acceptance, achievement) for personal satisfaction, and an inability to deal properly deal with failure.
