Do not let the fear of failure prevent you from trying something new
Wednesday, September 04, 2013
This morning I was lying in my bed thinking about something. Strangely enough I do no remember what it was that I was thinking about. lol ( Blame it on the pregnancy brain). Anyways i think I was thinking about something that I wanted to do and then I thought to myself, "I don't think I'm going to do that what if it doesn't work out?" And then a light bulb went off in my head. A little voice said to me, "Celeste you are going to miss an opportunity to do something new, because it may not work out! What if it does work out?"
And then I realize that I have been letting this fear control a good portion of my life. There are so many things that I want to try. Like writing a blog, being a stay at home mom, traveling with my child, opening a health food restaurant. But I realize that I am afraid of entertaining these thoughts because I am afraid they may not work out. But how will I know if they will work out or not if I do not try.
Today I am opening my mind to the realm of possibilities and see what happens. Life is an experiment, try it. I will be trying some new things. I will let you know how it goes.
What would you like to try?
