There’s very little worse than the feeling of looking back and wishing you had been brave enough to face your fears. No one wants to live with the consequences of missing out – FOMO is a real thing. Everywhere we look, we are being told not to have regrets, but it’s human nature to wish we had done things differently. To look back and not think about all the ways you could have acted, you have to exhaust all possibilities.
1. You have to give it all or nothing
Doing things by halves never really gets you anywhere. 100% effort is what brings success, and there’s no space for fear to get in the way. Be inspired by the best of the best.
2. You might be fearful, but someone else won’t
Being filled with the sort of self-doubt that stops you from chasing your dreams will only mean one thing: someone else will get there first. While you’re too busy hiding in the shadows, it will no take no time at all for someone else to steal the limelight from you.
3. You will always feel a little scared
You can’t hide from fear. More often than not, the best things in life will completely petrify you, and that’s okay. There’s nothing wrong with being scared of something, but there’s a lot wrong with letting it hold you back. You’ll get what you want when you learn to accept fear and do things anyway.
4. You never know until you try
Often when we want something enough, we don’t hesitate to go after it. The problem comes when we aren’t too sure about what we want. In reality, a lot of the time we find inspiration in the most unlikely places, but we have to be completely fearless to reach those destinations.
