“A lot of life’s problems can be solved by thinking clearly about what you want to do, what you truly need.”
Life’s biggest setback is fear. Everyone is afraid of something, whether it’s the fear of embarrassing yourself on front of a crowd, never being successful, or even blood. Terror is constantly holding us back.
People who want to become public speakers are afraid of talking in the face of so many people; people who want to reach for careers that seem impossible hold back in the face of the fear that they’ll never make it; and future doctors are hindered by their terror at the sight of blood.
As much as it feels impossible to get over fear, if you sit down and really think about why you feel the way you do, it can help a lot in decreasing that fear.
Think about the source of this fear. Why are you scared of this and is it really that scary? Couldn’t something good come out of this?
Everyone has experienced feeling like there was no one to care for them before or may be feeling it right now. This may have been triggered by being rejected by just one person or even a hundred.
However, if we ever truly want to be happy, we have to accept that not every person we meet will accept us. It’s the ones who completely and wholeheartedly except us that are best for us.
This is something I do often myself, a lot of the times without even realizing. You’ve probably had the urge to do something you really wanted to do but held back because you doubted whether you really could do it or not.
We are constantly questioning the true extents to our potential and capabilities, but if you take things step by step without trying to leap onto a project that’s too big then you’ll be able to destroy this feeling.
A lot of life’s problems can be solved by thinking clearly about what you want to do, what you truly need.
A lot of the times, you’re just overthinking things but just by figuring things out and attempting to understand why you feel the way you feel, so many problems can be avoided.
