Feel the fear and do it anyway.
What were you scared of today!? Was there a situating where you felt shivers and thought: “fuck I’m a little scared/anxious to do this”. Like giving a presentation for a lot of people, asking your horrible boss for a raise/free day, coming up for yourself or walking past a big group of people who will definitely look and talk about you. Did you eventually do it…. or did you succeed in finding a way around it? Once I red this amazing article that said that every situation that makes you scared, is the ultimate opportunity to become a confident and strong person. The scary situation ‘has to be there’ in order for you to grow. And it’s true. I always tried to avoid every ‘scary’ situation and I almost always succeeded with that. I’ve always been a person who creates all kind of intimidating scenarios in my head what ‘could’ happen. But last year in Madrid I decided to change and say ‘YES’ to every horrifying situation that would occur. It was so rewarding afterwords. If you go through a scary situation without trying to go around it, you will feel so invincible. You will immediately gain more confidence. If you do not go right through the scary situations, it will haunt you the rest of your life until you finally do it. Once you conquer that fear, you will lose the fear and you’ll see that you can survive everything. So just think about it, next time when you feel scared or anxious, don’t try to find a way out of it. Just jump right through it!
