Is Fear Limiting You?
Why aren’t you chasing your dreams? Why do you act as though failure means death — do you mean social death? Maybe you don’t want to be seen as a failure in the eyes of others — if this is the case you need to change the company you keep.
If you want something you’ve never had — you’ve got to do something you’ve never done. Shake things up and start making some changes — or don’t and carry on complaining until the day you die. If your friend group is unsupportive — make some new friends, if you partner doesn’t believe in you — leave them.
Why do the opinions of others matter to you so much? Why are you relying on those opinions to gratify your sense of self? Why do those opinions mean more to you than actually achieving your goals? I’ll tell you why — because it’s easier to get validation from others than it is to chase your dreams.
You’re playing it safe right now and this is because you’re living in a fear-based mindset. Nothing except resentment can grow from a this mindset — you will resent yourself and everyone around you if you continue to “play it safe” because over time you will realise that you’ve wasted your life.
Check yourself on what’s truly important to you — what dreams do you have and what would it take for you to achieve them? Are you relying on the lottery to save you from the life you hate? Investing in yourself has far better odds than sheer dumb luck.
You are worth so much more than just what others think of you. You can be so much more than just the person who had a lot of friends — you can live the life you’ve always wanted to live if you’re willing to leave behind the one you have now.
Ditch the fear and embrace the unknown.
Peace & positive vibes.
