The above story could be typical for kids especially at Salim's age who undergo peer pressure. But this is often adults in a bit more matured scene where lack of self-awareness shows off it bitter fruits. 

Most often, we find ourselves tucked in a corner where we sit our potentials down and ask them rhetorical questions simply because we seem to be different from others or we don't always fit in. This is literally lack of efficient knowledge, about ourselves playing our heads. 

Most people have delayed success simply because they became victims of ignorance of their inherent abilities. While some were skeptical of the verse potentials they inhibit.

Long ago, there was a man named Gideon he had great potentials of a mighty warrior but was limited by lack of self-awareness in the shade of fear.
