Fears, Failure and taking Risks ... Is it all worth it ?
"There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure"- Paulo Coelho
Is it the fear of failure? The fear of being judged? The negative self-talk that tells me to just settle and keep my aspirations as a distant unrealistic thought? Fear is one of those things that has a way to stop you dead in your tracks from doing everything that you dreamed of. There is the voice that sometimes prevents you from seeing the truth behind all of the clutter your brain hides behind.
For me learning to just feel uncomfortable is hard. I like being successful (don't we all) and I don't like to look foolish or fail at anything. I tend to become paralyzed in my thoughts. This paralysis happens when I get stuck thinking “what if” or “I’m not good enough” or any of the other nonsense I tell myself. This generally leads to a lack of action because I'm too scared to move forward. But it doesn’t have to be this way and its time to chase all of the dreams we believe in our hearts !
Sometimes the fear of not being good enough is hard and I use the judgment of others to validate my own life which is a scary thing. I am learning that I am good enough just as I am and I don't need others approval to be happy or successful ! All I want is to help spread and share my knowledge to everyone about fitness, healthy living and a lot of training along the way !!!
