Scared of Success… that might sound weird at first. I mean, who doesn’t want to be successful? Sure, everyone would love to wake up one morning and have it all, but since that doesn’t happen very often (read: never) you have to work hard and take risks to get what you want.
Will you go for it? What if it goes wrong? But what if you would spend the rest of your life wondering about ‘what ifs’ if you don’t even try? This is where comes in the scary part. We can’t predict the future, and we don’t know how things will work out for us. But then again… would life be really such an exciting adventure if we already knew everything?
I have lots of insecurities. Lately I have been experiencing a lot of stress because sometimes I feel like I can barely keep up with myself. People have expectations and I want to show them I’m worth it, I want to do everything good for everyone, I want to keep growing and establish a good future for myself. But because I want to do everything at the same time, sometimes I also have to deal with disappointments. But then, not that long ago, I read this quote which made me feel a lot better:
“If your Dreams don’t Scare You, they aren’t Big enough”
Exactly, that’s right! The best results are achieved when you are constantly reaching out for more, even when you don’t feel like you are ready yet. How are you ever supposed to learn when you don’t try new things and take risks? Take a look where you were 1 year ago, did you make progress? What have you achieved in this time? When you feel stressed you should ask yourself: are other people expecting this from me, or am I expecting this from myself?
The bottom line is… don’t be scared of success. Be scared of never trying.
Lots of Love,
