I used to let fear stop me a lot.
I also always had the thought “I’m not good enough” or “I must not deserve it if it hasn’t happened yet”.
But the truth is that other people convinced me of those things. You’re not born believing you’re not good enough for your dreams or that you don’t deserve something. Over time people trick you into believing that.
It took A LOT of therapy sessions for me to not only understand that but to actually believe it.
No one deserves something more than you. We are all equal. It doesn’t matter where you come from or who you know. If God puts a dream in your heart, it’s there for a reason. And you need to chase that.
I also used to always say “well, I’ll do this when I’m ready”. “I’ll launch my blog when I’m at my goal weight”.” I’ll go to the conference when I make x amount in my business”.
But dude, YOU WILL NEVER BE READY FOR ANYTHING. Ready is a lie. No one is ready. You can train and learn and practice. But someone is actually doing it. That someone could be you.
Confidence comes from action. Even if you don’t believe in yourself and you don’t think you’re ready. DO IT ANYWAY. Take the first step. YOU DESERVE IT and you will thank yourself later.
I have launched so many things and written so many things that I didn’t think were good enough. I put it out there anyways. I wouldn’t be where I’m at today if I waited for the perfect moment to do something.
Your fear is an X for what you should be doing. Chase it. And you will then have confidence.
What are you letting fear stop you from doing? Let me know on my last Instagram post @PrettyAF_com!
PS - If there are things you need to work through to get yourself to that point, please seek a therapist for help. I see an EMDR therapist and it has changed my life. You deserve to be happy.
