Fear can really control us. It can keep us from dreaming big, taking risks, and putting ourselves out there. It can keep us living small, keep us from taking the next step, and keep us from truly being who we are.
Sometimes you don’t realize you are being held back. You make up all these reasons why you can’t do that one thing that you really want to do. You don’t post on social media, or write that blog post, or start that next project because you think no one’s interested, or people might thing you’re a fraud, or whatever your reasons might be.
But all those things you’re telling yourself are excuses. Excuses that are stemming from fear. Don’t let your fear keep you small. Take that next step anyway. So what if it doesn’t turn out the way you wanted it to? You’ll be okay. You may even be better off. Or you may be more successful than you ever dreamed.
