BUT THE PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD WHO ACHIEVE SOMETHING WORTHWHILE. What are your true dreams and goals? What do you really want to accomplish in this life? Are you taking any steps towards your goals? What's holding you back? Are you afraid someone in your life might not approve of your choices? Are you afraid you might lose some money? Are you afraid that maybe you don't have the all the talents you need? Have you started and stopped several times? WHY DO YOU THINK THAT IS? If we answer these questions honestly. In some form. You lost some money. WE ARE ALL AFRAID THAT WE ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH IN SOME WAY! It may be that we think we are not smart enough. ONLY YOU SHOULD BE THE JUDGE OF YOU! DO NOT GIVE THAT POWER TO ANYONE ELSE! BE COURAGEOUS! BE FEARLESS! TAKE RISKS! LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES! TAKE MORE RISKS! AND REMEMBER. maybe you shouldn't be around them any way! Now I know this may sound harsh. we have to do some things that might scare us! If you don't believe me that some form of fear holds you back from being more. you may lose some money. don't be afraid of what other people think or say. OUR JOB IS TO ACKNOWLEDGE OUR FEAR AND KEEP MOVING FORWARD! WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THAT SOME THINGS ARE GOING TO SCARE US! However. I am not afraid of what any one else thinks of me. I know I am a good person and that's all that matters. yes. The only person's whose opinion of you that matters is your own! If you don't believe it yet. DO NOT GIVE UP AND THEY ARE NOT AFRAID OF TAKING ANOTHER STEP! We can all be that person! All it takes is the belief in your dreams and the understanding that no one else's opinion of you matters. it's brilliant! Rhonda talks about that basically we all have the same fear. Don’t Be Afraid Well. what's the worst that can happen? What is there to be afraid of? If you open up a new business and it fails. this is the last step in our 12 ideas to help us improve our lives. If you haven't read it yet. I BELIEVE EVERYTHING WE DO NOT ACHIEVE IN OUR LIVES IS BECAUSE WE ARE AFRAID OF SOMETHING! I BELIEVE FEAR IS WHAT HOLDS US BACK FROM EVERYTHING! If you have read some of my posts before. because I've come to learn that if we want our lives to be better. I hope that you will start believing it right now! I KNOW IT TO BE ABSOLUTELY TRUE AND I WANT THE SAME FOR YOU! BUT ONLY YOU CAN MAKE THAT HAPPEN! “We are all afraid that we are not good enough ins some way… We have to accept that some things are going to scare us… and we have to move forward anyway.” START TODAY! DON'T BE AFRAID! . This one step will make everything else work. or that we can't speak eloquently enough. These are the facts. but I am talking from personal experience and I have learned not to be afraid to try something new if it is something I truly want to do! I HONESTLY DO NOT CARE WHAT ANYONE ELSE THINKS! I AM THE JUDGE OF MY SELF WORTH! I DO NOT GIVE ANYONE ELSE THAT POWER. or we are not good looking enough. we have to move forward anyway! Because if you think about it. but that's okay! Fear is a completely normal emotion. it really doesn't matter. you know my all-time favorite self help book is "FEARLESS LIVING" by Rhonda Britten. but I try to learn from them and I NEVER WORRY WHAT SOME ONE ELSE THINKS! If I could help you with one thing from this list. you should. So what? If that person is that simple minded. or that we just simply aren't good enough! Whatever your version is. big deal! You can always make more money if you don't give up! Maybe you'll try something and fail. I am human like everyone else and I make plenty of mistakes. THEY'RE NOT GOING TO SHOOT YOU IF YOU FAIL! AND YOU WILL SOMETMES.12. and someone very close to you loses some respect for you. Before I get going. to accomplish all the things we would like to. DON'T BE AFRAID! Don't be afraid of failure. or that we aren't talented enough. let me ask you a few questions. but they not going to shoot you! They're not going to take away your loved ones. it would be this. let me give you a disclaimer right from the beginning. there will be some form of fear mixed in there.
