We’re all scared of something: public speaking, relationships, intimacy, trying something new, saying how we feel. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being afraid — it’s human nature. However, when we let fear prevent us from reaching our full potential, that’s where we have a problem.
Today, I encourage you to do one thing that scares you. Have you been avoiding a conversation with someone because you’re scared they won’t react the way you want them to? Scared to make a phone call that has the potential to change your career path and ultimately your life? Feel the fear and do it anyway.
With and only in the presence of fear comes growth. We become stronger people when we force ourselves into situations that would normally make us uncomfortable. We often hype things up in our mind and make them seem worse than they really are, only coming out to say, “Wow, that wasn’t so bad after all!” Putting yourself out there makes all the difference in the world. Say what you feel. Take the risk. With risk comes opportunity.
Who knows if that opportunity could change your life.
