No Fear.

You have to go after what you want. You have to be willing to fight, scratch and claw your way to your dream. Nobody is just going to hand you your dream. So you can't be afraid to go after any opportunities. What does it hurt to ask? All that can happen is someone can say no. 


This is all good advice until you have to follow it.

I want something. I want many things. But in particular I want one thing but I'm afraid to ask for it. I'm afraid to put myself out there, to risk burning a bridge, to face rejection.

All you can do is ask. All they can say is yes or no. But what if you really really want it to be yes.

Should I go for it? Should I put myself out there? I mean what's the worst that can happen.

When it comes to your dreams how much can you sit on the sidelines and expect it to happen?

You can't you have to go after it. You have to put yourself out there. You have to make it happen for yourself because no one else will. 

I have my answer. I know what I need to do. Now I just have to find the strength in myself to do what I need to do, to face my fear, swallow my pride and make it happen.

Think of your fortune...

A stranger will be come a friend...did you ever think that the "stranger" might just be what you are striving for? It's unknown

Excatly, noone will do it for us unless we do it ourselves. We can't sit and wait for things to happen, because the world doesn't work this way. Sometimes it's hard, and takes some time to do it, but in the end ... it's all worth it. Is it better to let go and wonder what culd have been or try and wonder how could we've even consider not going for it?

If you don't take the risk, you'll always wonder, "what if".

Take the chance! We've got your back if it doesn't work out.

I agree with everything you said. I'm realizing now, that if we don't make it happen no-one will do it for us.
Take the chance, and if you fall, get back up and try again! That's the best way to grow...

This post is totally my life right now..lol. It is so true..everything that you just said. No one is going to hand you your dreams. You need to fight for them, but like you said what if you are afraid?

I am that I sure as hell am, it scary having to put yourself out there and make things happen. You are so brave to be doing just that!

I know that I've said this before, but you are a true inspiration, maybe some of it will rub off on me..lol.

You can't let fear stop you from it. Although I'm one to talk, just the other day I was telling my friend how I'm terrified of admitting my feelings about something...for fear of getting hurt.

I should take that advice too and yours. Inspiring post!
