Fear has the ability to stop us in our tracks, preventing us from starting new and different things. Maybe it’s something out of our comfort zone that makes us so unsure of taking that next leap, whether it’s a big or small decision. However, that feeling of uncertainty and fear should not stop you from taking your life to the next chapter.
It’s understandable to have the feeling of uncertainty and fear when your life begins to shape its path differently. But instead of worrying about the feeling of uncertainty and fear, you should focus on how this new journey can impact your life in a totally positive and exciting new way.
Life sometimes shows us new opportunities, which can be frightening. You may be afraid of change or you might just like things just the way they are at the moment, and making the change just feels unnecessary.
However, it’s important to remember that opportunities don’t always come around that often, especially for some people. When the chance for your life to change comes around it’s important to weigh all your options and how it could change your life for the better.
Of course, there will always be a few setbacks when a change occurs, but examine the new possibilities that can happen when driving down this new road. How will it impact your life for the better? How could it make you happy in the long run?
Maybe you thought about this new prospect in your life, but all you can do is fret over the “What if’s” of it all. You’ve tried to see the positive outcomes of your new opportunity, but you fear things will go South and the great opportunity will make a detour without any sort of warning.
It’s important to remember though that there’s always the chance that things won’t go according to plan and in most cases, there is nothing you can do about that. So, don’t worry about the “what if’s,” don’t let them have control of your life. Be brave! Take that leap! Don’t let fear overcome your new opportunity that life has given you.
Consider all the possibilities that may come with this new opportunity. Don’t get caught up in the “what if’s.” Focus more on how the positive outcomes can benefit your life. If you find that there won’t be much positive impact then go right ahead and pass up the offer. Be sure that with whatever decision you make your happy with it and won’t later be wondering, “what if I took that opportunity, would life be different, better?”
Don’t beat yourself up, if you end up not taking that opportunity. There are no wrong or right decisions to make in life, only good and bad ones. Mistakes happen and you should not always regret them. Life is filled with learning experiences and sometimes you have to learn from those experiences on your own.
As long as you had the right intentions when making your decision, then you shouldn’t beat yourself black and blue. Know that as long as you don’t let fear control your decision and you stay positive, then things will work out in your favor.
