What keeps people in a longterm relationship despite the fact that they hate coming home because they have to see him or her? I’ll tell you…it’s the fear that you won’t find anyone else. You are afraid to be alone, miserable, and sex-less for the rest of your life.
Tip 1: Shake The Haters Off
Haters will hate and there’s nothing that you can do about it. You have to learn to not let others criticism of your choices, affect your path. Remain confident that you will accomplish the goals you’ve set, no matter what others think. Need help coming up with responses? Try these: “It’s nice of you to offer advice but I’m good. Thanks for offering!”
“Yes, I’m sure this is what I want to do”
“I’ve done my research and I’m on the path to fixing the issue”
“Thanks for the referral! I’ll be sure to contact him/her if I need help”
Tip 2: Keep Your Business To Yourself
Learning when to keep your business to yourself can be really hard but really effective. A new business ideas can be so exciting that you can’t wait to share with others. But think before you speak. Unfortunately, telling everyone about your next move will only lead to increasing your fear. People love giving unsolicited advice. Keep your new ideas, plans, or goals to yourself until you have gotten to a point where they can see it happening. Let your actions do the talking.
Tip 3: If At First You Don’t Succeed, Dust Yourself Off And Try Again
Trial and error will happen more than you might expect in your new fearless life.Somethings work out the first time and some don’t. That’s okay. It isn’t about how many times you fall down. It is about how many times you get back up. Overcoming challenges is part of the game. Learn from it and keep it moving.
Tip 4: Remember, you aren’t Beyonce, Chile!
Social media has its benefits and drawbacks, for sure. Who doesn’t enjoy scrolling through IG pics of Bey shopping at the finest stores and opening successful businesses with her seemingly perfect family in tow. Remember, everyone is different and we all have different paths. Comparing yourself to others won’t do anything but hurt in the end. You will never find your own path. The only difference between successful people and you is their drive and determination. YOU are YOU…be confident in that. Find your own path to follow and let it take you wherever YOU want to go.
Tip 5: There Are No Do-Overs
Life isn’t a dress rehearsal. As far as we know, its’ one and done. Make the most of every opportunity that presents itself and say “yes” more than you say no. You never know what can happen!
Tip 6: Remind Yourself, “What’s The Worst That Can Happen?”
Taking risks for a bigger reward is definitely scary but what’s the worst that can happen? You may be told, “no” and you may even have to try something else. Last I checked, no one died from hearing the word “no” or from failing at something.
Tip 7: Vision Board
I’m a true believer that if you see it, it will come. There are things that I have put up on my vision board that seemed so far fetched. But they have happened. So get to cutting and pinning, girl! There is no vision that is too big.
Always remember that confidence is key, set small goals that will lead to bigger ones and don’t look back! Good luck on your road to fearless living!
