We all have that “dream” in the back of our minds…whether it is a dream job, moving to a certain city, or taking that dream vacation. Why do some people wait their whole lives, never fulfilling their dream(s), while others seem to just “make it happen” somehow? These are some of the obstacles I overcame to start a new fashion blog that I felt comfortable sharing with a larger audience.
Reason #1: Fear
I am definitely not a psychologist, but this one is pretty easy to see. Most humans are so fearful! We live inside the “what if’s” in every worst-case scenario, which stifles the dream before it ever has a chance. Here are a few common fears that feel so real in the moment but are complete nonsense:
* What will my “____” think of me if I take this job, quit this job, or start a new business? The better question is what will “you” think of “you” if you decide to never go for it and live an authentic life?
*What if I FAIL at this, that, or another…? The better question to ask is, “how do I know if I will succeed if I never give it a chance?”The best case scenario is just as likely to happen as the worst case. True Life. Plus, coming from someone who is no stranger to failure, it is usually the best thing to happen to you! Yes, sometimes I feel like failure is just around the corner, but the funny thing is, so is success.
