If you’ve been wanting to push yourself creatively, mentally, physically, or emotionally–do it now. Whether it’s the first thing that comes to your mind or something you can’t stop thinking about, we encourage you to go for it. If you’re still questioning it, take a minute to think about what’s holding you back.
Are you waiting for the right time?
It’s natural to think you have to wait for the “right time” in order to start something new. You could spend forever waiting, so instead, create it. The “right time” is the exact moment you decide to begin. Don’t let life’s surprises and distractions get in the way of starting, because if not now, then when?
Do you doubt your abilities?
Success isn’t just allocated to some elite group. The truth is, success is a direct effect of your effort. If you put forth the effort, even through the tough times, you will strengthen your ability and propel toward success. You are capable of so much more than you give yourself credit for and you’ll never know if you don’t try.
Are you afraid?
As a result of being human, fear is a common initial response to new challenges. Overcoming fear over and over again is what will build up your resilience which will only make you stronger.
Take each doubt one at a time and push through it. You got this. Trust us when we say, you’ll feel empowered to take on the next fear.
Face everything in your life as if you’ll never be presented with the same opportunity again. It’s easy to make excuses and hold yourself back, but you have the power to change that.
Rather than letting doubts keep you from jumping, push yourself harder than ever and just dive in. You may surprise yourself with how far you go. Even if the tides knock you down, you can swim back to shore, dust the sand off and jump again.
Many things in our lives can become our guides: a family legacy, a childhood experience, a role model, even a worldwide phenomenon. Although you are guided by life, you can still dictate the direction in which you’re going. Map out the actions you need to take to get to the places you strive to reach. Although you may hit some roadblocks, you’re setting yourself up for success in the long run. Slipping up once, twice, or maybe even three times is inevitable. All you have to do is revisit your map, pick up where you left off and keep going.
We’re in this together and we’ll get through it together, Balance Fam. Within a community, anything is possible – we’re here to support and encourage each other through it all. Let’s hold each other accountable and come out of this stronger than ever. Whatever it is you choose to do with this time, do it for you.
You have what it takes to go after it all.
