Don’t let anyone define what you are worth or what you are capable of achieving.
Other people know shit about you—including me.
I’ve no idea who you are (given you’re not a close friend of mine/a relative). Hence, I’m not here to give you “life advice.”
None of this do-this-dont-do-that-kind-of-bullshit you read in the typical success, motivation or self-help space. I’m not here to sell you something; I’m here to sell you on a free concept—that you can either adopt, or not. It’s this.
You are responsible for your own life.
Many people won’t accept this fact, and that’s totally OK as long as they are happy. However, many of them are not. Many of them wish to improve their lives… yet when you look at the actions they’ve taken so far, you see a different picture. Meaning most people have great ideas and ambitions; unfortunately they don’t follow through because of this one nagging feeling they have that holds them back:
Fear of failure. Fear of the unknown. Fear of pain. Fear of rejection. And on, and on, and on it goes. Just google the word “fear.” You’ll find all kind of fears that keep holding you back.
How to break through this fear once and for all?
How to do that?
Simple. (Not easy.)
Take massive action, confront what you’re afraid of, keep going no matter how you feel, and don’t give a shit about the results you’re getting. That means if your goal is to be comfortable to, let’s say, speak in front of an audience; chances are high you’re going to suck in the beginning.
You don’t have developed the skill of public speaking yet, and you don’t have enough positive reference experiences. You might also not have enough support and it all seems too much of a challenge to you.
So you got to begin small (with the big vision in mind, for example, becoming a professional speaker). You got to surround yourself with uplifting people who support you on your journey. Last but not least, you got to embrace the process and enjoy the journey. That’s vital.
See life as your playground because it is. Every single day we get so many opportunities to improve our lives and our skills. Every new day let’s us experiment, try things out, grow.
I say, “Let’s do this!”
