Do you restrain yourself from giving your opinion? Are you shy about expressing yourself? Do you care too much about what other people think? Confront your fears, make that extra step and let yourself go! All situations described in this post are not fictitious. Any resemblance to real life experiences is not purely coincidental. I may be talking about you!
Are you are scared to say that you’re feeling good with her? Are you afraid of being rejected? Tell her! Say it out loud, that’s maybe what she’s been expecting for too long.
Do you usually keep your opinion for yourself during these office meetings? Do you really feel like sharing this burning idea but finally never say anything? Don’t keep it for yourself, your involvement and ideas can have a positive impact and your personal engagement may be rewarded!
Do you hesitate to say “no” to someone, because you’re afraid that this person may get angry at you? Say no, that’s a way to show that you know what you want or at least what you don’t want. People will eventually respect you for that.
Are you afraid of being too personal, expressing your doubts or showing your weaknesses? Let yourself go and be authentic! You can’t please anyone, but you can have more meaningful relationships.
Have you been postponing this project for too long? Are you afraid of failing one more time? Start right away and put your plan into action. It may be your time for success. How do you know? You never know until you try one more time!
Will you apply for this position you dream of? On the other hand, are you still thinking that you don’t have what it takes? Pick up your phone and make this call! You may get the job because of your passion. Resumes are sometimes not enough.
Are you afraid to make this change in your life? Do what you really like. Follow your passions obsessively! It’s only when you take this irrevocable decision that doors open and opportunities flow into your life. Fear of failure, fear of rejection or fear of what other people may think, can stop you from living your dreams and passions. Sometimes it is necessary to stop thinking and confront your fears by doing what you’re afraid of, whatever it takes or how uncomfortable you may feel.
Whatever reasons you may have for not doing what you feel like doing, you’re missing too many opportunities. If you really want to manifest your dreams and express your passions, your job is not to keep asking but to focus your attention on what is happening in your life. Behind each relationship, incident, coincidence or insignificant event, there is an opportunity to grow and take a small step towards achieving your dreams.
Will you recognize this opportunity, will you act upon it? Go behind your comfort zone, let yourself go out of fear and express yourself; you may finally get what you’re dreaming of sooner than expected!
