did you know the majority of people make all their major life decisions based on fear ?
should i take that new job ? or just stay put even though i am unhappy ?
maybe moving to that city will be too expensive
what if i don’t like the climate there ?
i don’t think i can commit to a long term relationship yet
babies are so demanding and i am not very good mother material i think
what if i can’t afford to live in that house once i have bought it ?
and on and on it goes.
fear paralyzes, it inhibits, it causes undue worry which drains the mind as well as the body.
fear never allows you to free yourself from the confines of over zealous self preservation.
it stagnates your life. it cripples.
be free of fear, step out in faith and challenge yourself to be brave and live the kind of life you read about in books. that make you sigh when you see it played out in movies.
live in the anticipation of excitement at the new prospect that has presented itself to you. roll it around in your mind, be cautious but be bold. and always ask yourself
“so what is the worst that can happen?” if it doesn’t work out you can always go back to where you were. but at least you tried.
for there is nothing worse in life
regret for not having done something that could have changed your life or someone else’s.
i am convinced that regret is the worst emotion a human can experience.
just do it !
and if your afraid
then just do it afraid
now go !
