Big Project? Dream? How to Overcome Fear and Go for It
Even if investing much time in an uncertain project can be terrifying
Let me tell you one thing:
Life is short.
Having projects and working on them is a fulfilling and exciting way to spend your days. Stop procrastinating on the big things of your life. You don’t know how much time you have. If the process makes you excited and the perspective of success fills you with energy, then go for it!
Take the first step today.
“I’ve learned over the years that when I go to that place of passion within me, there’s no force in the universe that can interfere with my completing a project.” — Wayne Dyer
What are you risking?
Wasting your time. I know.
I’ve been there too. You feel like you’ll have wasted your time if this project doesn’t work.
In fact, it’s not the major risk. Here they are:
- Succeeding and ending up reaching your goal (how terrible would it be!)
- Growing and learning in the process
- Meeting amazing people along the path
- Failing and learning from it
- Developing new skills
- Adding experience to your life course
There is no way you are wasting your time. The way you see it depends on your perspective.
What do you prefer?
Spending your whole life gazing at meaningful projects without even allowing yourself to take the first step? Or putting your fear aside, pride as well, and jumping in, giving yourself a chance to succeed?
There’s no telling what might come out of it.
Life is made for living it.
Craft the life of your dreams. Go out and live. Make the most of your time here.
The only thing you truly risk is missing out on your life.
