Why are people so afraid to step out their comfort zones and try new things? Nothing is wrong with doing something out of your element, that is the beauty of life. Life is full of risk taking, messing up & starting all over again. This post I will give some tips on how to go about trying new things.
So, you want to do something new, but you are afraid of what others might think of you. First things first: Forget them! People will try to stop you from experiencing things because they themselves are afraid too. If you want to be risky, go ahead. If you want to find love, go ahead. People might say everything in the books to deter you, but go ahead anyway! Find what you need, do what YOU want, and find your own happiness.
You have to know what risks are worth taking though. Don’t try to do everything just because you think it might make you look cool or just because it makes you feel good. That is how you end up in a bad situation and there will be consequences for those actions.
Life in itself is a risk. What I mean is that you never know what is going to happen to you, not even the next second is promised. Why waste time? What are you waiting for? Don’t you know that time waits on no one? Read this:
1. You live and you learn.
2. You get to explore something different.
3. You might actually love it.
4. You can say that you went for it!
5. It’s rewarding.
1. You can’t ever say you tried, because you didn’t!
2. Worse scenario you failed, but that’s not the end of the world.
3. You played it SAFE.
Go out & Explore! NOBODY wants to be around someone who never tries new things. You got to try and fail sometimes in order for you to get better. Today take some time to reevaluate your life. Is there anything that you want to do? Make a list & try to accomplish it this summer.
