Why You Need To Be Fearless To Get What You Want

There’s very little worse than the feeling of looking back and wishing you had been brave enough to face your fears. No one wants to live with the consequences of missing out – FOMO is a real thing. Everywhere we look, we are being told not to have regrets, but it’s human nature to wish we had done things differently. To look back and not think about all the ways you could have acted, you have to exhaust all possibilities.

To get what you want, there comes a time when you have to put doubt aside and become fearless. Here’s why!

You have to give it all or nothing

Doing things by halves never really gets you anywhere. 100% effort is what brings success, and there’s no space for fear to get in the way. Be inspired by the best of the best – here’s what successful people don’t do.

 You might be fearful, but someone else won’t

Being filled with the sort of self-doubt that stops you from chasing your dreams will only mean one thing: someone else will get there first. While you’re too busy hiding in the shadows, it will no take no time at all for someone else to steal the limelight from you.

You will always feel a little scared

You can’t hide from fear. More often than not, the best things in life will completely petrify you, and that’s okay. There’s nothing wrong with being scared of something, but there’s a lot wrong with letting it hold you back. You’ll get what you want when you learn to accept fear and do things anyway. These 10 career girls didn’t let anything stop them!

You never know until you try

Often when we want something enough, we don’t hesitate to go after it. The problem comes when we aren’t too sure about what we want. In reality, a lot of the time we find inspiration in the most unlikely places, but we have to be completely fearless to reach those destinations.

    So true! When I started my business as a lifestyle expert and TV spokesperson more than 10 years ago, I figured the worst thing that could happen was that it wouldn’t work. Had I let any fears get in the way, I wouldn’t have started a business that continues to this day! http://www.shopwithstyle.com

    I needed this article in my life! I am an extreme introvert and seam to be afraid to do a lot of things just because I am scared of what people will think of me. What I found by starting my blog and reading other’s blogs, is that I don’t have to be scared. Since then my confidence has gone way up! Thank you for writing this post!

    That’s very true, we often are too scared to try things out and end up regretting now having done it!
