We believe that on every unit of chain is only as strong as its weakest link. The ‘weakest link’ referred to is a person or technical feature of any organizational system. The proverb has a clearly literal fact that each chain with many wear and tear during use, has different ability to withold external and internal force within. Therefore, chain as a single circle is only as strong as its weakest link. The conversion of that notion into a figurative phrase was established by the 18th century. Thomas Reid’s Essays on the Intellectual Powers of Man, 1786, included this line:
“In every chain of reasoning, the evidence of the last conclusion can be no greater than that of the weakest link of the chain, whatever may be the strength of the rest.”
When most adults are subjected to something new, the thought of being outside their comfort zone and probable failure, gives rise to anxiety and pressure, which is basically a self inflicted mental stress. Adults are so much conditioned to live the way the society expect, however good a company built a uniformly working culture, we can never ensure everybody have a uniformly perfect happy life. Once we get into the habit of getting approval from the outside, living a happy life gets written off.
When we live a life for a respected validation from the outside, we start comparing and competing, building up interpersonal tension. Guilt grips us as we compare our worst with the best of the others that makes us feel less than them. To achieve real and internal freedom and handle these type of issues confidently and keep procrastination at bay, one needs to have a veratile emotional health and a good self image with inner peace.
