One of the biggest fears in the world is failure. People are so afraid of being bad at something that they talk themselves out of going after their biggest dreams and never know if they would succeed at it or not.
The beauty of life is falling and then getting back up. People don't realize how much they inspire others through their defeat. Fail, and keep going, there's someone waiting to hear your story...
Here's 3 reasons why you should never be afraid to go after your dreams, and never look back!!
1. You are inspiring the future
You have no idea how much our youth looks up to us. Whether you fail at going after your dreams or not they are in awe of your confidence to do it. Make them proud and do your deepest desire they will thank you. So many of my friends and colleagues have amazing ideas of doing things they want to accomplish that actually benefit the next generation. Ranging from opening a homeless shelter that provides career help, personal/professional guidance, and meditation to creating a non-profit for at risk girls in urban communities. Whatever your heart desires, keep in mind that there is a little girl or boy waiting for you to help change their life, make them proud.
2. Your test will be your testimony
When I was at my lowest of lows I kept asking God why I was going through so much pain and anxiety. I was journaling, blogging, praying, and meditating everyday and I was still depressed and unhappy. I couldn't find a job I liked, and I had the worst problem saving money. When I started to tell people what I was going through I came across so many people who were going through the same thing. I couldn't believe that I wasn't alone. Now that I'm working in my dream job and content with my relationship, career, business, and finances I feel like I can share my story with others and inspire them to keep going because it will truly get better. Accept failure and defeat, accept every closed door, and every bit of bad news, it will be your testimony to another crying soul. You will empower them to keep going, because you got through it. So overcome these dark days and keep running towards the light at the end of the tunnel.
3. You are growing tremendously!
Whenever you fail at something your internal growth thanks you. The way you receive the news will determine whether or not you will grow from it or not. Mentally tell yourself that this is only a test and you will be unstoppable. Every closed door will be fuel to propel you to the next opportunity, every negative comment or set back will push you to go back that audition again and kill it. Trust your process and your journey and trust God's lessons. You are going through it for a reason. Be inspired, be empowered, and be fearless.
