Putting yourself out there is hard to do. When you put yourself, your ideas, your plans, or your intentions out there, you are opening yourself up to criticism and judgement. The bad news is, critics can say some pretty mean things at times. The good news is, you don’t have to listen to them, because they aren’t in your position, and they don’t know what it’s like to be in your position.
Don’t let armchair quarterback opinions bother you. It is a lot easier to sit back and criticize, than it is to be a doer. Only you know what you are capable of. And you will only know what you are truly capable of if you are willing to take a risk and follow through. Don’t discount yourself and your abilities based on the thoughts and opinions of people who may not have your best interests at heart.
Remember, doers do and critics talk about it. Since critics are going to talk/criticize, no matter what you do, so I say….Give’em something to talk about!
Yes, there are brilliant genius types who seem like they were born to do great things, but the vast majority of successful people/achievers are ordinary everyday people who made the decision they were worth more, and/or could do more, and/or were not going to settle for less, etc.
Do enough of the things your future self will thank you for, and your future self is likely to be the person you have always dreamed of becoming. Small consistent actions can build even the biggest of dreams.
Believe in yourself and go for it!
Yours in success,
