You are afraid of the world. You are afraid of its loud, hectic pace. You are afraid that if you get out of your shell, life will break you down to pieces. You are terrified of speaking out and letting everyone know that your opinion matter. Because you know that you will be repeatedly judged.
Judged because not everyone will agree with your statement and not everyone will stand behind what you say. You are embarrassed about showing everyone how different you are. You are scared because being fragile in front of others may cost you your life.
And so, you stay where it feels safe. You hide inside your warm comfort zone where everything seems to function just right.
And meanwhile, you aren’t going anywhere. You are stagnating. You are safe and secure, but your life is slowly passing by. You are not existing; you are merely surviving.
Well, let me tell you something.
I know that your shell is the safest place on earth for you, but you are never going to grow that way. You know what they say… A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are made for. The same goes out for you and every person out there who is terrified of being exactly who they are.
You are not going to become the person you are supposed to be if you are afraid to let go of your fear of not being accepted. Taking risks and failing is the only way to do it.
Why? Because that is how you learn. That is how you realize what works for you and what doesn’t. That is how you broaden your horizons and find the courage to spread your wings and fly. Fly higher than you’ve ever been.
You have to stop thinking that failing is the end of the world. You have to stop letting those parts of your life discourage you from ever trying again. Failures are your lessons. Mistakes are what guides you through life. They are not something that should be avoided; on the contrary, they are the stepping stones to greatness.
The thing is, most people think that playing safe is the way to go through life, but that is a lie. A lie that we keep telling ourselves because we are terrified of making a change.
I know that it’s difficult to step out of your safe place and face life’s challenges, but that is the only way to move forward. Revealing the unknown is a scary thing, but it is also what keeps your dynamic in life and motivates you to reach your potential.
That is our purpose on earth after all, isn’t it?
If you allow fear control you, you are going to regret your actions. I speak from my personal experience. There is nothing worse than not doing something and then spending your life regretting your poor decisions. Trust me, there is nothing more disappointing than missing out on opportunities because of fear.
So, hear me out!
I know it is scary to make the first initial step towards your dreams, but it is worth it. I promise you!
As tempting as it is to stay hidden in your comfy, little safe place, you are never going to grow unless you find the courage inside of you and step out.
