Be Brave. Make IT Happen!
Have you ever thought about it that you are the only one who stands between you and your dream to become true?
I will share short story from my life. I had a dream. Ever in my life when I will have enough of time and money – I will go on trip to USA. I dreamed about for 12 past years.
Also somehow I felt – I am not being fully honest with myself. I felt it in my heart. I was postponing this dream not because of the reasons mentioned before. The main reason was fear.
Fear of unknown culture, unknown environment, unknown people, very long flight. And I could continue this endless list of fears.
USA is located in different continent. It is so far from my country – Latvia! What if….? I started to visualize what could happen during this trip. Not powerful, but scary thoughts came into my mind. Even those: what if plane will… crash?
When you have a dream and you start to over analyze it, with no doubt - will get stuck. You will start to think about the worst scenarios. And as deeper you go by drawing these “bad pictures”, as powerless you become.
As you already know (I shared it previously), I implemented this dream about USA few weeks before. No one of my worst scenarios happened. Those were just fears. Fear to try. Fear to step out of my comfort zone.
But it has been proven multiple times – you can’t experience full freedom while you don’t open the doors of your “box”. And don’t step out of your comfort zone.
While you live in fear, you can never be truly free. As those negative and scaring emotions will limit you. And decisions made because of fear – those are never good decisions FOR YOU. Those decisions lead you further from yourself.
Be Brave. Step out he comfort zone. Even your fear is big. Especially then!!!
Do anything what makes your heart to smile. Take decisions you have to take – to be able to experience that you have always dreamed about.
Don’t overthink. Don’t dive deep details.
Make things to happen. Open up for freedom. Be open for opportunities which are all the time around you. Just allow to yourself to notice them!
Anything is possible. It all is just in our minds. We are the ones who limiting ourselves. And, true, there are expectations from society also - what you should do or what you shouldn’t do.
Be authentic. Don’t follow the crowd. Don’t do as others do. Don’t do what others expect you to do. But do what is important for you! Don't postpone anything anymore. Now it the best moment. And actually that is the only moment we truly have. The present one.
Be Brave and overcome your fears!
MAKE YOUR DREAM BECOME TRUE.
