Starting this blog was one of the scariest things I’ve done in my life. I have never been the type of person who takes chances or risks in life. Risk is not my thing. I love winning, I love being “perfect” and right…. A blog was uncharted territory for me and very intimidating. I was afraid that I would be speaking to myself and that the people I was targetting would not get it. Mostly, I was afraid that “people” would not like me. Nontheless, I took a leap of faith and lauched the blog. Needless to say, I am so humbled… so surprised. Every single comment, like, share… every piece of advice…. I see it, I love it. Thank you to to everyone who pushed me. Thanks to all the blogs that follow me, comment and like my posts, thanks to all my 3 067 followers! Thanks to the men who hate that they love my content, thanks to my friends…for EVERYTHING. I still get baffled when readers say they like my writing style…. never mind that, that they like my content.
Anyway this post isn’t about my thank you speech at some awards ceremony. I just want to let you know that I appreciate you and all the support you give me. it really is true that trying is better than not doing anything at all. When you try and fail, it isn’t as bad as your mind makes it out to be. You won’t die, no one will laugh at you and if people notice, the will probably be over it by the end of the day. People are conceited and really don’t have it in them to focus on you and pay you attention all the time.
I’m here to tell you that now is the time for you to do whatever the hell you have been wanting to do but kept putting it off because “it is not the right time”. The right time will never come my friend. You make the time right, you make the conditions favourable, you put the odds in your favour and you just DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO. Start that clothing line. Write that book. Go and travel. Apply at the University you want to go to. Just do it. Do it now. If you fail, you would have learnt a great lesson, and the wisdom from that lesson would have turned into a priceless gain.
So can you see… when you lose, you are actually winning. I’m not talking about “change the world” stuff. But then again, even that takes a step. A decision to set the plan into action. So stop being afraid and put yourself out there, you won’t regret it! I haven’t.
