It can be hard to step outside of your comfort zone. Trust me, I know. However, you should always do the things that scare you the most.
Don’t Do What You Want
Don’t do what you want. Do what you don’t want. Do what you’re trained not to want. Do the things that scare you the most. -Chuck Palahnuik
When we only do what we want to do, we will forever be stuck in our little, limiting bubble while never experiencing new and exciting moments in life. So, do what you do not want to do, and I promise, you will thank yourself in the long run.
Be fearless in the pursuit of what set’s your soul on fire.
Chasing after your dreams can seem scary. What if you fail? However, if it sets your soul on fire, go for it. Go all in because what if you succeed?
The Best Moments in Life
Whether you like it or not, sometimes the best moments in life come from doing things that scare you the most.
Do you know what is great about doing things that terrify you? Afterwards, they are no longer scary. Are you scared of heights? Go skydiving. Are you terrified of water? Go swimming. Then, you will no longer be controlled by what scares you. You will experience life to its fullest value.
Stumble & Fall
So don’t be afraid to make mistakes, stumble and fall, because most of the time, the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. -One Tree Hill
Guess what? Sometimes, you will fall. You will stumble and fall. You will get knocked down over and over again. However, if you stand right back up, nothing can stop you. Failure is apart of life. All great successes start with failure. There is only one type of person who never fails, the ones who never even try.
They’re Worth it
Apply for that job. Date that person. Buy that plane ticket. Move to that city. Do all the things that scare you, because they’re worth it.
Your dreams, your ambitions, your goals—they are all worth it. They are all worth trying for. Yes, it is scary. Actually, it is terrifying to put your heart and soul into something that has a blurry future. However, it is worth it in the end. So, let the fear in. Do what scares you because when you accomplish your dreams, ambitions, and goals, it will all be completely worth it.
It Helps You Grow
Always go with the choice that scares you the most, because that is the one this is going to help you grow. -Caroline Myss
If you never step outside of your comfort zone, you will never grow. You will stay stagnant in life. Your fears and anxieties will control your decisions and basically, your life. Plus, the only person who should be in control of your life is you.
Terrifying & Amazing
If it’s both terrifying and amazing then you should definitely purse it. -Erada Svetlana
If something sounds terrifying and amazing then, do it. Don’t question it. Don’t think. Just do it. You never know what you can accomplish if you let yourself live a life unchained from your fears.
One Thing Every day
Do one thing everyday that’s scares you.
Every day is a new opportunity to accomplish your goals and move past your fears. So, go out and live your best life. Do one thing today, tomorrow, and the next days that make your hands tremble and your palms sweat. Eventually, maybe your hands will no longer tremble because your fears will no longer control you. You live fearlessly.
