Be Fearless


Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

- Harriet Tubman

Have you ever wanted to achieve something so bad? You've tried to push yourself, grasp as much motivation as you can…but suddenly stop because of one thing, fear. Well I have and I'm sure a lot of people have experienced this. We're all human, it's gonna happen. The only fault here is if you continue to let fear manifest into your mind continuously, it'll never allow you to get anything done! Now I'm not saying fear is completely bad, cos hey you're gonna need some of that adrenaline, but do not and I repeat do not let it takeover.
I like to go by the old saying of; you're never gonna know until you try. Although this phrase might annoy the hell out of you, it's so true.

Finishing uni was a very daunting time for me and I'm sure a lot of people can relate to this. I know I shouldn't put pressure on myself, but hey I feel like I'm fully immersed into the world now. There are so many pathways to take, decisions to make, different adventures and of course many places to see. It all does become a bit of a headache when you think about it I suppose. Now I don't want to babble, go off track and escape into the crazy mind of Alisha but here are a couple of tips that have helped me when it comes to being fearless and have you saying; you know what, maybe I'll just go for it.

Look at the bigger picture -

Set yourself a goal, envision the bigger picture. Once you do that I promise you a huge smile will appear on that beautiful face. Now I'm not saying the journey is going to be easy or steady, but to achieve something you're most likely going to have to take the bumpy road to get there but once you do... damn it's going to feel good!

What's the worst that can happen? -

No really ask yourself that. I can assure you you're not going to die. The worst possible thing that you're going to be left with is a bruised ego and that can be easily fixed. You know the old saying, if at first you don't succeed dust yourself off and try again. ( I had to bring my girl Aaliyah into this)

If it means a lot to you, you WILL do it -

If you want to travel girl, you travel. If you want to write a book, well girlfriend you better sit down and get writing. It really is that simple, if you're passionate about something you will get it done. Whenever I get lazy or unmotivated I think, you know what this is something I'm passionate about so why wouldn't I give it my all? If you have to repeat it a hundred times YOU do just that! Just remember, passion will always push you through.

Look at the people around you -

Remember no one likes a hater. You better put your hand in that haters face and say back up! No seriously all jokes aside, really look around you. Are you surrounded by positive people? If so, plant yourself there and celebrate! One thing I've learnt is that positivity is the key to progress. Allow your friends, family, work colleagues to push you, encourage you, but most of all support you. No matter who you are or where you come from support is E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G! It's that little push that can make a huge difference.

Now I know all of this may come across a little corny but sometimes everyone needs that little nudge. (Even if it may be from a random stranger…)
Take that leap, push yourself and be fearless!
