Ever felt a time where you are faced between the biggest decision in your life and you are not sure whether to take the leap and go for it or stay back in your comfort zone?
There are so many times in life where we face a gap between ourselves and the successes that we want.
Many times we hesitant to make that jump because we have a fear of failing and not making it to the other side. However, when we don’t take the jump we lose the opportunity to see growth, change, and happiness on the side of success.
My advice would be is to take that leap of faith that you are contemplating on.
This is mainly because the opportunity that you are given is one that probably comes and goes, and if you don’t take the chance right now you miss out on growing as an individual.
We already spend our lives doing what the norm is, what is ‘expected’ out of us, but we don’t take time to realize how to differentiate ourselves to do amazing things.
People can live their lives on the safe side and spend years and years juggling the thoughts of taking the leap but that ultimately leads to wasting our time. Time is the most valuable thing that we have on this earth, if you waste it because of the indecisiveness that you have you need to sit down and validate the pros and cons of the opportunity.
I always go all in on the opportunities that are handed to me because you never know what that can lead to. I’ve had chances with big name influencers across the country, only to connect with them for a couple minutes and have jumped on a plane and took it because they led to so much more.
So what holds people back from taking that leap?
The two things that stand between the gap of success is fear and doubt.
We start asking ourselves the ‘what if’ questions and ultimately we talk ourselves out of taking that jump to success.
- What if I fail?
- What if I don’t make it to the other side?
- What if my friends don’t agree with me?
- What if I make a fool out of myself?
- Well, I’m here to tell you, what if you make it?
Train your mind to see the positive in every situation.
If you know that there is even a slight chance that you can get some sort of benefit out of the opportunity you are contemplating about, I say go for it. Nothing is worse than regretting the fact that you could’ve done something great for your future.
Therefore, don’t think about the negative of the situations and all the worst outcomes that could come out of it. Focus on the positives and how it can change your life in the long run, because at the end of the day some opportunities are only once in a lifetime.
