Its an undeniable truth but we all always try and work on things which we believe are not there or missing in our life. Whether it may be some inability to do a certain work or a fear of something.
Most of the times our Fears keep us back and we set on a journey to remove fears. But its the fear in itself that makes us cautious and makes us able to decide the right things. And once we follow the path to eradicate them, we sometimes fall so deeply into it that we loose our very own existence.
This is termed as Drifting. It misguides most of the youth. And I would really advise everyone to stay away from it and do the best what you really good at doing.
