Do you struggle with putting yourself out there? Do any of these thoughts sound familiar?
- I'm afraid to fail
- I'm afraid to succeed
- What are they going to say about me?
- What if I'm not good enough?
- What if they laugh at me?
- What if they think I'm weird?
- What will they say about me?
The worries can seem endless. And our brains can easily sweep us into a state of fear and overwhelm that can be completely paralyzing if we allow it.
We ALL have fears! And that is okay. After all we are human! But we also have the ability to overcome these fears. We have the ability to embrace vulnerability and push ourselves outside of our comfort zones.
To get started, it's important to tune in and have awareness around how you are feeling. Be really honest with yourself, and know that you are allowed to feel however you are feeling. Then set a goal, even a tiny one that will push you forward : make the video, sign up for the class, register for the event etc. Celebrate the small wins along the way.
You deserve to put yourself out there. You deserve for your voice to be heard. You deserve to be seen. It's time to embrace vulnerability.
