It’s so easy to let anxiety get the best of us, and convince us to either not pursue our goals or quit before we’ve accomplished them. It’s so easy to tell ourselves that we’re going to fail. That we’re never going to get what we want or that person will never want to talk to us, that we convince ourselves to not even try.
That’s one of my biggest problems. Overcoming anxiety and a deep-rooted fear of failing. If I don’t try, then I can’t fail. If my goal seems too grand to carry out, why even bother? But all that’s going to do is keep me stuck right where I am, never moving forward, never getting better, never realizing my dreams.
You will never grow if you keep listening to the voices in your head that tell you that you can’t. Tell those voices that they’re just afraid and the only way to stop being afraid is to go out and try to accomplish your dreams. And if you stumble or fall, just pick yourself back up and try again.
