Are you afraid about doing something in your life?

Perhaps you have fear of failure, making a mistake or fear of being wrong. You could also be reluctant due to something from your past .

Feeling afraid is one of definitions of fear. Fear is beneficial as it protects us by alerting us of dangers. However fear can also freeze us and prevent us from taking action.

This quote and todays reflection will hopefully inspire you to be bold and take the next step towards living life. 

“To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.”

Anonymous

No matter what happened in the past,

how many times we may been wrong or made mistakes we cannot let our fear stop us from going on.

We all makes mistakes and that leaves a mark in our lives and then start avoiding life. Also many take the easy way and avoid trying new things. 

I have had a fear of public speaking for a while. I usually avoid any situations where I may have to speak in front of people.

I have learned that a lot of people have this same fear. Although I have still not fully conquered it, my parents and teachers have all helped me to get better at public speaking.

This quote also gives me reassurance that if I cant let my fear that I may make a mistake stop me from living life or public speaking. 

They help me to write, show me how to make my presentations and give me feedback to make them better,. I am thankful for them because I am getting much better at speaking to larger audiences. I know its a skill I need and that it will help me a lot as I grow older!

“I let go of my Fear!”
