I have never been good at keeping my New Year’s Resolutions. Matter fact, I’m not that good at keeping goals.
I will always get super inspired after watching a motivational video or after an awesome conversation about business or life. But when the next day rolls around, I just get lazy and let all of my fears and insecurities get to me.
“What if I fail?” I will ask myself.
Or “this is just a waste of time!” I’ll tell myself.
I just can’t launch my idea, even if it’s an awesome one that I think will work and that can help others. But that little voice in my head, the one that’s always scared of what others think and is afraid of failure, is always making me stop before I even start.
I want it to go away.
There are many gurus or popular business minds on the internet that will say just do it. They tell you to just shut up that negative voice in your head and just begin. But it is so much easier to say than to do.
But they are right. If you have a goal or a dream that you want to accomplish, you just have to start. You just have to jump in and do it. Don’t worry about what others think about your plans. It’s your life at the end of the day. Don’t worry about being perfect because it will never be perfect. Just jump in and do it.
However, it is easier said than done.
I have so many ideas that I want to put out into the world. But fear is holding me back and it sucks.
But if I want to live the life that I have envisioned for myself, I guess I just have to tighten the straps and jump in.
Right now, I’m saying I’m going to do it. But who knows how I’m going to feel a couple days from now. I may just give up once again. Or I may summon enough courage to actually do it.
I really don’t know, but writing this has really shown me how ridiculous it is to not do it. I mean, who cares if my service sucks and every single person hates it in the first week or month? I just have to learn what I’m doing wrong and then fix it. And who cares if people doubt me. At least I was brave enough to try.
So yeah, I’m just going to do it.
“Shut up little voice that makes me doubt myself!”
