Life is never perfect, nor is it ever going to be the easiest of journey’s for anyone, but that’s fine because nothing that is worth having ever comes easy.
Sometimes (always) we want to take the easy route out of something, whether it is quitting before you’ve tried something (I almost did that recently), or avoiding situations that could very easily lead you directly to where you want to be in the future.
Why are we so afraid of facing tough situations, especially when people we knew, who are older than us, and have been there before themselves, have told us that by enduring these problems, we will come out all the more stronger for it in the long run? We can’t just expect for everything to be handed to us. Working for what we want is not just going to make us stronger, but it will give us a sense of pride also.
From today, this very moment even, I want you to face something you have been shying away from, because fear is a great asset to have, the best teammate you could ask for. It is the one thing that will push you forward if you don’t give in and let it drag you backwards instead. Use it to your advantage and like a quote my mother always uses: ‘Feel the fear and do it anyway’!
