Whether you believe it or not, you own this moment. Be in the present. Focus on now. Make the best of it. Living boldly helps prepare you for what’s next.
Rather than cautiously testing the water, be fearless and dive straight into life with freeing abandon. Think of the person you want to be and the relationship you want to be in – use your imagination – then make a commitment to live your best life now. Believe in yourself. Be your own spark. Lighten up. Design some new “happy” habits. Be fearless and promise yourself to break a bad habit. Keep your promise.
It takes no strength to let go… only courage. Repeat after me – out loud, “Fear begone!” Feel better now?
“To me, Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death.” ~ Taylor Swift
Spread some Love around. It’s the great miracle cure. Call someone you haven’t talk with for awhile and tell them you love them. Fall in Love with yourself – again. Why? Because you deserve it. Emerge from that fortress you’ve built around your heart. Let others in. Feeling down? Break the cycle. Exercise. Do something extraordinary for someone else. Put on a lively CD and create some new moves. Be spontaneous! Life rarely makes any more sense when things are done in order.
Sometimes success in life and in your relationships lies in bombing big-time first. We learn from our mistakes. They shape who you will become. Forgive yourself for past mistakes. Don’t be afraid to make more. We often learn more from giant flops than big wins. Do it with sass. Study life and love to help you do life and love better. Start a journal to keep track of your progress.
“The FEAR of being nothing, achieving nothing and becoming nothing should be way bigger than the fear of making mistakes.” ~ Daniela Saviuc
These incremental changes you make along the way will increase your self-confidence and help you boldly go where you have not been before. Repeat after me – out loud, “Change is good!” Stop thinking so much and start really living. Breathe. Relax. Let go of any worry or stress about the future. It’s on its way but the future hasn’t happened yet. Accept no excuses from yourself.
After a misstep, reflect on it, then move forward faster and wiser. Never second guess who you are and never be afraid to make a big splash.
