Accept the fear. ..Things will transform.

Hi Friends,
This is Vishal Shah from Coimbatore. I am 30 Years of age
and I run an ad agency.. I would like to share my experience of stammering with
you which you might find useful. 

I started stammering when I was 6 years of age. I
experienced stammering for the first time in UKG when the teacher in the school
asked me to speak.  As I grew up I
started resisting stammering. My problem got complex as I grew. The more you
resist the more it persist. In school there were boys who used to bully me.
There were few teachers who were helpful, few were not. My life was around
stammering.  My respect for people or
humanity was not that great. 
In 2006 I completed MBA. I did a job for 3 months and I quit
because again I found stammering as a hurdle in my life. I found the access to
the world closed because I was unable to express myself. I went into depression
till 2010. Then I learned from life that we have to accept stammering. If I
stammer, so what?  Acceptance does not
mean giving up or failure. Acceptance causes disappearance. What I did was, I
stammered with people. Stammer, stammer, stammer!
Consider you are afraid of darkness. How can you remove the
fear of darkness? You can do that by standing in that dark room and experience
that nothing has happened to you. Your fear will vanish gradually. Similarly
for stammering, fear causes stammering. Let the fear come. Let stammering
 Stammering is
situational.  If you try to correct your
speech, you are gonna be nowhere. I made my speech complex by correcting my
speech over and over again and again. 
I chose the fear of stammering. Let me stammer.  I said to myself, let me experience the fear
of stammering. My situation was so worse that I was unable to speak two words
together. Now I have started my ad firm, I interact with employees, customers,
girls and everyone else. Today I can stammer with anyone in the planet. Stammering
has reduced considerably and will vanish off in the time to come. 
My friends in this group who stammer, I would like to tell
you that I am there for you. I stand for you, for your life and for you to
achieve what you want to achieve in your life. Nothing, not even stammering can
stop you from achieving what you want to achieve. The greatest mistake I made
was trying to change myself. DO NOT TRY TO CHANGE YOURSELF! Change is very
difficult. When you don’t do anything, things do not get stuck! Acceptance is
easy. Just don’t do anything.  Accept the
fear. Love the fear. Things will transform.
