A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him–David Brinkley
Many are the times I do not do things because I fear what people will say. I just sit back with my ideas and plans and watch the flame of my candle go out just to avoid the criticism I create in my head. Like I have not done it yet. I do not know if it will work. But I can already see it fail. I can already see all the negative comments coming my way.
So I asked myself, what if I actually tried it and it worked? What if this idea is my big break in life? What if this is what I need to get to my next level? But I will never know unless I try it.
I need confidence. While confidence has been overrated to be the absence of fear, I think of it as the courage to facing my fears. The courage to block out that negative voice in my mind and to actually go through with my plans.
Whatever happens, whether I do try it or not there will always be critics. So why not do it anyway. Why not do it FOR ME? Even if it does not work out at least I would have learned something from it. I’ll know of one way that does not work and I will find another that does.
While I know it won’t be easy, I will not let the opportunity pass. I will do it for me no matter the outcome, and you should too!
