I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear/ Nelson Mandela.
Are you courage enough? If you are not probably you are bored by your current situation. Do you really like your partner? Are you satisfied with your job? Unfortunately more and more people tend to live boring and uninteresting lives. It appears that you set your goals, you manage to achieve them but you are unlucky and unsatisfied person who simply is unable to enjoy your life. What’s wrong with you?
Probably you are simply afraid to change anything in your life. You get used to it. You are not going to change anything as it is uncomfortable and there is no guarantee you would manage to get what you really want. It turns out that you want to satisfy expectations of your family members. You are afraid to disappoint them. They are proud of you and admire you. Are you really okay with it? You tend to think that it is normal life and you should not give up. Well, of course you should not if it is your life. Remember the words by Steve Jobs, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition”.
C’mon, it would not work if you do not follow your dreams. Try to answer what you really want in life. Many of us have no idea and are really confused trying to answer the question. Well, it happens so. But be sincere to yourself. It doesn’t mean you should take risks right now. Do not miss an opportunity to live your own life. In several years you will regret the undone things now. You think that the opportunities you have would be actual and available at any moment. You could be wrong. So do not miss your chance. Get rid of all the fears and insecurities you have in your life. And finally do what you really want to do. “Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear” (Mark Twain). So if you overcome all your fears you will be able to live interesting life.
