Being Brave

Lately, I have made it a point to talk to women I meet about their goals, aspirations, career choices and things like that...and there has been one common theme that I have heard over and over again...

“I really want to do XXXX, but I am scared of failing.”

or

“It is my dream to do XXXX, but what if I don’t make it?”

So, instead of “going for it”, they just stay at their current mundane job that they hate because they are too scared to follow their dreams for fear of failing.



Since when is failing a BAD thing? In life, I have learned way way more from my failures than I have my successes. Failure does not have to be a bad thing. It just means that I tried...and maybe learned that what I once thought I wanted, really wasn’t for me...or I realize that next time when I try a certain thing, I will do it a little differently. Failing is a GOOD thing. Trust me.

Yeah, it is scary to take that leap of faith doing something you believe you were meant to do...but dammit ladies...you won’t know until you try!! Yeah, you might fall on your face...but what if you don’t?? Would you rather live a life of “what if’s” or a life of “I went for it”?

There are so many people who just sit around and reminisce about things that they wish they could do or want to do. Then there are people who DO. Which one do you want to be?

Be BOLD! Stop being afraid to fail.

F-ing go for it....please!

Follow that inner voice that beckons you and tugs at your spirit. It is there for a reason.

You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You weren’t made to blend in...so stand out.

Dear one, it is ok to be scared, but you need to dig inside yourself and put your big girl pants on...and at least TRY so that you will know...and when you do try, you must try with all of your heart. Don’t be half-assed. Give it all of you. I think you will be surprised at what you have inside of you. Courage that you didn’t even know was there. The cool thing is this: Once you discover that courage, it will grow...I promise.
