I can do this.. I’ve done it before
Fear is the biggest thing that holds us back from achieving our dream and being the best we can be. I have read a few things from self help type people and a big theme seems to be overcoming the fears that hold us back, the negative voices in our head that tell us we aren’t good, we can’t do it, or don’t bother because we will only fail. If we think back though fear is something we develop not something we are born with. We quickly learn to fear dangers but as we grow we also begin to fear failures and beat ourselves up. But there is nothing wrong with failing, I’m pretty sure I have read some good quotes on this, basically saying failure is a good thing, we need to make mistakes to learn and then finally we hit the sweet spot and do something brilliant. It’s a game of trial and error, but worse is to never try at all. Life is learning, it’s ok to make mistakes and stuff up, if we didn’t we’d never learn and never improve. So back to the title.. I want to challenge myself to do some video, as it seems in this online world, people miss connection, and like to get to know you, and video really provides that. But it’s scary, it’s easy to hide behind text, pretty pictures and nice photos. But you know I can do this. I found an old YouTube video from 2007 and it made me realise, I had no fear of it then, we were just being silly, and ourselves, and didn’t care what anyone thought of it, we were simply being creative and having fun. So if I can have that mindset once, I can do it again.
I made this little poster for you, so if you want to try get motivated like me, to conquer the fear, and do great things, pin this up on your wall as a reminder.
