“I spread my wings and I learn how to fly.”
Today’s blog is relatively cut and dry, because I just needed to get this all out there. I’ve seen a lot of posts on social media about how people are “scared to do this” or “scared to do that.” People. We can’t let fear run our lives.
While fear can keep you safe, it’s not exactly your best friend when you’re attempting to broaden your horizons.
It’s not easy to step into unknown territory, where you’re not exactly sure how far it is until your feet hit the ground. Some stay away from the idea of New, because it’s out of their comfort zone.
But what if no one ever tried anything New? What if our entire lives amounted to nothing, because we were too frightened to step outside of The Comfort Zone? There would be no Picasso, no Shakespeare, no Johnathan Larson. The world would never know of Beethoven, or even Oprah Winfrey.
These names are known to the world because they all had the courage to do something that scared them, and became successful because of it.
Not every single one of us are destined to be widely known and infamous for our choices in life. It’s just not realistic. We can still take away from those that are, and establish the notion into our own lives.
Maybe if you take a chance, you’ll earn a promotion at work. Or take the risk of wanting to go cliff diving. There are benefits to every experience you have. Sometimes, that benefit may just end up being the life lesson of “well I’m never doing that again..” In the end, you learn and grow, and that is the most valuable thing.
If you don’t take risks, you’ll forever be sitting in your bed with the sheets to your chin. You won’t have a life.
Swallow the fear and jump into the water head first.
Just imagine what life would be like if no one took chances. It would be a colorless, monotone world to live in. How sad that really is.
Get out there into the world, and pack fear into your suitcase.
Stop living your life just because you’re scared. You may be on the brink of something so incredibly beautiful.
Until next time,
