What if I fail, what if I’m not good enough, what if I’m too old, too young, too fat, too skinny and the list goes on and on forever. We all have our fears, our insecurities, our doubts, our reasons why we can’t do something. We often look at those who have made it and assume that things just came easy to them. “They were born that way, naturally gifted; if I had…fill in the blank…I could have made it too.”
‘What if?’ one of the worst things to ever look back on your life and have to ask. I would rather fail and know the answer than to always wonder. That’s the kind of question that will haunt you until the end of time.
Courage only comes from facing something that you are afraid of and going forward anyway, not the other way around. Stop making excuses, either go for it or don’t and if you really have something in your life that’s more important than that’s ok too. However, realize that’s what you’re doing, prioritizing, because if you wanted it you would find a way. Sure, there’s always exceptions, but I’d say the majority of the time we just use that as an excuse instead of it being the actual reason we can’t achieve something.
What if? What if you make it, what if what you do changes the world or inspires someone else who is going to? The world needs you to follow your heart and accomplish your dreams. It’s not only important, it’s necessary!
