First Time Here ?
How many times have you kept your mouth shut when there was something you really wanted to say? How often have you held back from doing something for fear of failing or looking like a fool?
I have done all of the above and I am sure that many others have too.
Why do we tell our self that we are not strong enough, smart enough or brave enough to make that change or take that chance?
I don´t know. But I am writing this blog because one day I woke up and decided that was it. I’ve had it. Never again will I feel the sting of regret because I turned down an opportunity. Or didn’t have the courage to let my voice be heard.
That morning I made a decision of not being a wimp anymore. I will not let my fears stand in the way of my vision of having a great life full of adventure.
And come to think of it: What is my other option – and how attractive is that?
None of us are immune to fear: Fear of failing. Fear of being criticized. Fear of rejection. But if we don’t pay attention to it – we risk living lives controlled by our fear and not by our choices. To live fully is to live bravely.
To be honest: It is not easy. I have not found the magic formula that makes me brave in an instant. The only thing that works is practice, practice and practice.
Like when I read a poem at my fathers funeral even though some was against it. Or when I rode downhill full speed on my mountain bike. Or when I negotiated a better salary.
Growth and Comfort never rides the same horse.
To do any of that I had to take a step out side of my comfort zone to find the success that was waiting for me.
That is what this blog is about:
