A fine line between boldness and shyness.

Some people are full of themselves, and pretend they can do all, often managing to escape the consequences of the disasters they create, or are salvaged by others people good enough to make their thing work, i don’t want to be like that.

However, trying to overthink everything, refusing to take any risk, constantly refusing to get out of your comfort zone, means you are never going to expend it. Refusing failure is refusing progress too. If you look well, it seems bold people often manage well anyway, they will be seen as impostors, as posers, as wannabe’s, by some, but people will retain their successes rather than their failures, and life will go on.

Now, i’m not saying we should take inconsiderate risks, or that you should say you are an expert when you are not, it’s always important to assess consequences, but there is something to saying, “I bet i can do that, no! I know i can do that, i don’t know how yet, but i’ll do”. And to force yourself doing it. Build confidence if you are lacking it, keep an ear open for people when people will be saying you are being reckless, but don’t stop before trying.

The only thing to fear is not living.

Also, don’t write inspirational blog posts because you are out of schedule, that’s very lame.

Tip me if you like this :)
