Stopping yourself before you get started is the worst thing you could do but the hardest decision you made.
I say it's the hardest decision to make because you are literally making a decision if you are going to move forward with your dream/goal or quit on yourself before you even begin. A lot of people have a hard time giving up on themselves but honestly they do it often. A funny fact is those same people quitting on themselves support everyone else around them without hesitation.
There are many reasons why it's harder to trust yourself. Let me list some of them and you let me know which ones hit home.
- Scared of failure
- Worried about judgement
- Not sure where to begin
- Personal insecurities
If any of these are your sources...Let me be the first to tell you that you are not alone. The important thing is that you know what's holding you back but don't know or don't want to push through it due to uncertainty. I have the solution for you but you may not like it.
YOU CAN'T MOVE THROUGH ANYTHING WITHOUT PUTTING THE WORK IN IT!
It's the obvious but it's the honest truth on what needs to be done. There is no way you are going to get through it if you never push the boundary.
You won't get past judgement if you care more of what people think over your happiness and/or goals.
You won't get through failure until you take a leap of faith and try it. Failure is only bad if you allow it to crush you; Failure is good if you change your perspective and learn from your mistakes. They are gifts to you to let you know you are on the right path but may need to change your route or change what you are looking to do because you learned your purpose.
Personal insecurities are installed in everyone around you. The difference is removing the amount of control they have over you and taking the time to strengthen your viewpoints on yourself. You can do this through life coaching, therapist etc.
Being in control of everything can be beneficial but tragic depending on how much or what you are trying to control. Learning what you can by learning your triggers and how to manage them is what places you in control. Ignoring what the issue is but putting a bandaid over it, doing a quick fix or using a fake face to cover it does nothing. When you go that route it will begin to control you since you are putting so much energy to make it look a different way opposed to accepting it's level of truth or area for you to address.
Now that we broke that whole thing down...You need to be honest with yourself and do the work so you can move forward and stop missing amazing opportunities.
Break the chain of holding yourself back and learn to live your life that's worth living.
Question is....Are you ready?
