The truth is that everyone has fear in their lives. Fear of losing control, fear of rejection, fear of disapproval. Fear can be crippling, it can hold you back from taking a risk and doing the thing that you’ve always dreamed of. Fear is a basic instinct that is there to keep us alive; it is the “fight or flight” instinct. I’m sure you’ve heard this a million times but it means that when we become afraid we respond either by being ready to either fight or run away.
This fear does not have much use in today’s world. Don’t let fear hold you back from doing the things that need to be done. If you know what you want, and have done your research then just go for it. Just because you’re afraid you might not get that dream job, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try silly!
Keep in mind that even if you miss one opportunity, there is always another one around the corner. You just have to keep your eyes open so that you can see it.
Don’t let past mistakes hold you back from future successes. If you have tried something like investing in the past and it has not worked out, then try to figure out why it didn’t work and learn from it.
Don’t continue on doing what you have always done just because it is comfortable. Sometimes in order to be successful we need to change our routine, and do something scary.
