Fear will run your life, if you let it. Having fear of what may happen will stop you from attempting many things you desire. People fear the unknown. They fear what other people may think of them. Don’t. Don’t let your own fear stop you. You would be doing exactly that — stopping yourself. Don’t worry about what other people think of you. Worry about what you think of you. Don’t fear trying something new or challenging. One day you will be happy to be able to say that you tried. This world already has enough challenging barriers to overcome. Don’t be another for yourself. Break through the wall of fear.
Doubt, much like fear, can also run your life. Time and time again I see so much potential in people (including myself) and I wonder what is stopping them from attaining it. Then I realize that most of the time, we do. We are typically the ones blocking ourselves. We simply don’t believe we can do it. We don’t believe we can get that job or lose the weight or make the Sun blink. Yet, people get jobs all the time, there are some amazing success stories of people losing weight, and 80 people have managed to make the Sun blink and respond to them. Why not you? You are a human being too. Don’t hold yourself back. Let yourself be great. Break through the wall of doubt.
