“Don’t be afraid to fail, be afraid not to try.” -Michael Jordon-
It is amazing how fear can grab hold of us and refuse to let go. What makes it even more disgusting is when we make grand plans for the thing we want to do. That’s when it raises its’ ugly head and starts telling us all the reasons it will not work.
When you already have doubts and a lack of self-confidence, it goes to work on you. Magnifies every adverse event or thought in your mind.
The best way to handle fears and doubts is to plan. Decide what you want. Determine what information you need. What are the steps you need to take? Take small steps and reward yourself for each accomplishment.
Before you know it, you will have achieved your dream, and the goal will be a piece of cake. When your enemies, fear, and doubt, raise their heads and start to work on you. You tell them to go away. They longer have power over you.
Don’t ever be afraid of trying. To get anywhere in life, you must be willing to realize that sometimes you will fall flat on your face. It is in getting back up and continuing that makes the difference. You were born a winner, so don’t be afraid to fail, be afraid not to try for your dream.
Until next time, stay safe, and keep the faith.
