Life Journey: Scared to Try

Life Journey: You feel you're not good enough to get what you really want, so you don't try.

Sound familiar? 

This "not good enough" attitude will stand in your way of achieving your happiness.

I would like to share a couple of things I have learned along the way to encourage you to push on.

You need to be mentally strong. Never lose sight of what your goal is. There will be bumps along the way, but don't allow this to distract you.

Another thing, don't EVER give anyone the power to take away the spark and fire that makes you who you are or working on becoming. Stay in control.

Never waste vital energy on negative talk and complaining. Positively approach the "Now" and the "Future".

Reflecting on your mistakes can improve you as a person, but only if you learn from them. Don't rinse and repeat on those mistakes.

Be humble about your limitations and learn the importance of boundaries. It's okay to say "no" to others and think about yourself. It's not being selfish, it's about maintaining your goals. 

It's amazing to me how some opinions can create a fear in you and stop you from even trying. It's even worse when that person is you. You need to stay out of your own way.

Never be afraid to let yourself dream big. Get out of that comfort zone. This is what keeps you alive. It keeps your heart beating and gets your butt out of bed.

Always believe your dream is something you can and will accomplish. Then keep focus and swat away any fearful thoughts that will create limitations and paralyze you from getting where you need and deserve to be. Keep Focus on that dream and make it a reality. 

I know in life there will be disappointments, but you have that drive, that desire and passion for this. Use that to lead you to your success. It will be an emotional roller coaster, but so worth it in the end because you will have that sense of accomplishment. You will be able to wake up everyday with a smile on your face and you say, "I have calm and I have joy in my heart." 

Remember that life will have many ups, downs as well as many adventures ahead. Don't be afraid. When you have a big stumbling block ahead, turn it around. It's not a stumbling block.

Turn it into an adventure and a heck of a climb. Once you get to the top, the view will be truly breathtaking.

This is the way I encourage you to look at life. After the rain, ( you know what I am going to say ) there is a beautiful colorful rainbow, it never fails. Use life's hurdles as climbing blocks that will get you into rocking shape.

Please never be afraid to dream big and to have ambition. With a positive attitude you will achieve anything you want.

Till next time,
