“The biggest risk is not taking one” don’t live your life wondering…

_Take the risk, take the fall, what you want is worth it all_What holds you back? Why don’t you say what you want to say? Why don’t you speak up? Why don’t you do what you want to do? Why don’t you take risks? Why don’t you try new things? What exactly keeps you tied up? Is it society? Is it your friends? Is it your family? Is it the nerves piled up in your stomach dressed as butterflies? Or is it just you?

Is it just you telling yourself not to do it? Is it only you not believing in yourself? Is it your fear of failure? Because failure is wayy better than not taking a step. It’s better than silence. Failure is so underrated, I mean yeah sure it sucks, but it helps you become a better person at the end of the day. It helps you gain a better understanding of whatever it is you’re doing and you gain a better understanding of yourself. You learn so much when you fail, and you realize how strong you are. (If you decide not to give up of course) I once read in a book that curiosity is inside us for a reason. Like a little child, who follows his curiosity till he learns how to stand, then walk, then run… you know the drill! So follow your curiosity and see where it leads you; take the risks, feel the adrenaline rushing through your veins as you do something you didn’t think you were capable of. (This does not apply to harmful things of course, e.g. drugs)

And here’s why: because when you grow old you’ll wonder what would’ve happened if you just followed your gut instead of listening to your fears. You’ll wonder what would’ve happened if you took risks, how your life would’ve turned out. You’ll wonder what would’ve happened if you stood with yourself instead of standing with a doubtful society. And you’ll regret it so much. You’ll regret that you didn’t take a chance on yourself.

If you have been waiting for a sign, here it is. Here is your sign to do what you want to do. Here is your sign to speak up. Here is your sign to do something totally out of the box and not expected. Here is your sign to say what’s on your mind. Here’s your sign to stop being afraid and here’s your sign to just go for it. Here’s your sign to stop trying and just being. Here’s your sign to be whoever you want to be. Here’s your sign to break the norms of society. Here’s your sign to be extraordinary. Here is your sign. Here is your sign to be your better self.

If you do decide to be your biggest supporter and believer, if you do decide to follow your gut, if you decide to take a chance on yourself and if you decide not to give up after being disappointed; then you my friend, are on the right path.

There is no fun in playing on the safe side, is there?

Rock on.

  1. I can’t tell you how much I needed to read this right now! I’m nervous about a party I’ve planned to go to tomorrow as it’s out of my comfort zone but this has made me see things in a different perspective. I won’t know what I’m saying no to in the future unless I actually give it a go and then it’s my choice whether or not it’s for me. Thank you for writing this 🤗❤
