What would your life be like if you kept doing everything the same way? If you stood still for the next 10 or 20 years and didn't make progress with anything? If you stayed stuck in the same situations that you're in now?
If you stayed at the same job, with the same pay, lived at the same apartment? What if nothing changed but the years? You still would have goals and dreams but what if you never took action on any of them?
How long are you going to go through the same story lines like the soap operas do? Just changing the names and faces as time rolls on. Is it going to take one, two or even ten years for you to figure it out? What is it going to take for you to realize that you are just replaying the same events over and over again?
You say you want to make a change in your life but you are afraid to take that first step. If you don't move you won't get anywhere. You'll be stuck in the same situations and will repeat them over and over again. You can't let your fear keep you frozen. If you do you'll only have a life full of regrets and what ifs.
Are you willing to forget your dreams and repeat the same scenarios for the rest of your life? Only to say that you lived a safe life. And what's the point of life if you don't take risks every now and then?
Is it worth it for you to go after your dreams? What's the worst that can happen? Sure there's that possibility of failure. But you can't succeed at anything in life if you don't at least give it a try.
Fear of failure can be paralyzing. You need to break yourself free from the grip of fear. The only thing worse than failure is not trying at all. You know you have the potential within you so take the chance of a lifetime and go for it. Reach for your dreams. You just might go further than you expected.
Failure is not a bad word, it's just another experience that you have the opportunity to learn and grow from. So don't be afraid of it. Besides if you do fail you might find a way to reach you dreams that you wouldn't have thought of before. So if you don't try and give yourself a chance to succeed or fail you're holding out on many of life's possibilities.
Stay focused on your dream and make it happen. Isn't it worth it?
