WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF?
It’s alright to be AFRAID as long as you don’t allow it to HINDER you.
Thank you for taking out time to read our posts, I am sure you enjoyed the last one http://pamsotu.com/its-not-too-late/
I enjoy writing cause it’s also a time I get to reflect and talk to myself.
A friend read my last post and reminded me of an idea I said I was going to implement. Unfortunately, I haven’t implemented it *covering my face*. Please don’t judge. Anyway, she told me that “It’s not too late” and I agreed.
WHY HAVEN’T I IMPLEMENTED IT?
Anyway, one thing I have realized that hinders a lot of people from taking that bold step is FEAR.
NOW YOU KNOW WHY
Trust me, I know a lot about FEAR, the lies that come with it, the disappointment attached to it and all the negativity.
While I was talking to Funmi, the friend I mentioned, she said something that struck which was “DO IT AFRAID”.
The problem at least for me was “what if it doesn’t go as planned?” But then you have discovered that the way you went about it won’t work.
Another issue I had or still have is “what would people think?, what if I don’t get my desired response?” But what if this people in question DON’T CARE.
Anyway, in spite of the “WHAT IF’S”, DO IT AFRAID.
In actual fact, you don’t stand to lose anything by giving LIFE your best shot but you definitely get to live in regrets for not trying.
Even if you have to write that book in FEAR, write it anyway. Trust me, your READERS won’t know you wrote it out of FEAR?. *that’s me talking to myself* Don’t judge.
Climb that stage, sing that song, recite that spoken word, implement that business idea, forgive that friend, come to God no matter the amount of FEAR surrounding you.
If others can do it afraid, http://sayitforward.org/do-it-afraid/ why not you?
I CHALLENGE YOU to DO IT AFRAID.
Oh well…that’s enough for one post.
