In today’s world, fear often drives us to fit in and stay in our own lane – to keep our heads down and not upset anyone. It keeps us from pushing way outside of our comfort zone. But if you want to create a life on your own terms, you need to pick your head up and be bold. You need to lean into the things that scare you and never back down. You need to realize that you’re scared precisely because there’s something at stake. That’s why fear should propel you forward – because the things you’re afraid of are often the things that matter the most.
The world is responding to who you believe you are. Decide who you want to be and then start being that person – find yourself. Embody the qualities of that person. Start thinking like that person. Start behaving like that person. Acquire the habits of that person. Eventually you will become that person.
What you tell yourself everyday will either lift you up or tear you down.
