If you never did anything different, where would you be?If you never took a step into the unknown, what experience would you have? The same as ever, the same as everyone else.
Everything that you have done that is worth doing has required you to go beyond your comfort zone. Moving forward is rarely comfortable.
The mind hates progress for this reason. And it’s why you can use that feeling as a gauge to indicate what is truly important to you.
If the idea of doing something makes you nervous or brings up doubt about whether you are up to the task then that is an excellent indicator of importance. Follow that idea, do that thing.
You see, the opposite of love is not hate but indifference.
If it doesn’t require you to overcome some resistance to get it, it has little value to you. The more resistance, the more value it has to you.
I don’t think you will ever get to a place where courage isn’t required. You just get better at ignoring the “I can’t’s”, the even more subtle “I’m not ready yet’s”, and of course the “it might all go wrong’s and then what’s?”
Being bolder is a skill that you can practice. It starts with awareness of your mind’s limitations and setting your attention beyond these complaints.
What do you want to do? Expect resistance and jump anyway.
The first step before flying is to leap.
