I would be lying if I told you I am not fearful. It’s one thing to have dreams but it’s another to actually make your dreams come true. I am petrified. It is so easy for doubt to creep in and find a home in your thoughts.  It is so easy to list the reasons why it can’t or won’t work. What if no one gets or appreciates what I am trying to do? What if I fail?

It’s like riding a bike

But it’s not about what others think or if I will fail. In order to succeed you can’t be afraid and you have to risk failing in order to see it through. It’s like learning to ride a bike. As a kid I was so scared to take off my training wheels I thought there is no way I am going to be able to balance. My dad took the wheels off and I was right I couldn’t balance and I fell down a few times, but I always got back up and tried again. The fear never left but my determination was greater then my fear and in no time I was riding my bike!

New Year, New Chapter

It is time not to be afraid and to wholeheartedly go after my dreams. With the New Year coming there will be no hesitation. If I am honest with myself I have been hesitating this whole time. Fear is a powerful roadblock but my challenge to myself and everyone else is not to let fear stop you from chasing your dreams. Don’t let fear make you feel incapable. Use fear as motivation rather than a setback. Website will be done January 2016.
