I’ve been working on pushing myself lately. Pushing myself to try new things and take more risks. The risks I’ve been taking aren’t dangerous nor do they cost me anything financially. They’re the kind that can lead to opportunities, opportunities I’d miss if I held myself back due to fear of rejection. I’ve learned that the fear of rejection has kept me from pursuing things in the past.

If I can’t move forward fearlessly, I will go forth courageously!

I won’t get to where I want to be by playing it safe. If there’s anything I want you to get out of my recent life lesson, it’s that sometimes the worst that can happen is you’ll hear “no”. You’ll either grow from it or be able to move forward without regret, without wondering what could have been. So dare yourself to be brave, push yourself to dream bigger, and take the risks that could lead to amazing opportunities!

What are your thoughts? Did you need to hear this today? Has this encouraged you to take that risk? I’d love to hear what you think about this in the comments.

  1. Actually this has confirmed something for me as far as my career goes. I have skills and a degree but have been rejected from decent companies for so long, that I have remained in a dead end retail job for three years!

    I got comfortable. This is the reason I have not drove a car either. I took driver’s courses and had loving family help me learn but- no driving. The other day though, I realized something is very wrong with the picture of this life. Through my husband’s inspirational words and my job getting crazier…I am no longer afraid of change nor challenge.

    I will update you! Thank you so much for this post😀

    1. Yes! In the pursuit of authenticity! I’m a big believer in following your heart. All of the risks I take are guided by my heart and I have yet to regret any of them whether they work out or not! ❤

  2. I’ve been trying to work on the same thing! I know it’s comforting to stay in our comfort zones and to stick with our routines, but more often than not, trying something new brings pleasant surprises (or sometimes lessons learned). 😉
