When I was young, I didn't really know people who really went after their dreams. Not in the sense of reaching for the top of the top anyway. When I met someone who wanted to be a photographer, and just applied for jobs at fashion magazines and got them it rocked my world. We all have the fear of rejection, but once it occurred to me that unless I put aside that fear, I would never achieve my dreams. Since then, pretty much every dream I had I've achieved on one level or another. Everyone is afraid at some point, but it's just a matter of deciding if you want to live with your fears or live with your dreams.
This is just so true. I’ve been very afraid of not reaching anywhere but you know – you just have to believe in it ! 🙂
I think I definitely needed to see this today! I have been holding back on starting my blog for over a month because I’m scared, I need to just do it!
Sarah-Louise, I was the same way for more than a YEAR and just published my website last month. It’s definitely a work-in-progress, but once you go for it, you won’t look back!
Gold words!!!!!! We face a lot of critique and words like ” Why don’t you do something else?” and we have to fight with our fears to be successful!
