Motivational Monday | What is the worst that could happen?

It's year (almost) 29 for me and I have a completely new perspective on life. Of late, I've had a bit of fearlessness that I've never embodied before. My motto has been...

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not out here being reckless. I have too many responsibilities and people connected to me to be foolish; however, I am questioning my fears and becoming bolder and more confident. Let's be clear, I've never been a pushover, but I have let opportunities pass me by out of fear and lack of confidence in certain areas. Case and point-- I've been doing makeup for years and I've had plenty of opportunities to start a freelance business. Yet, my lack of confidence prevented me from pursuing it. I was afraid that I wasn't good enough and I wouldn't market myself effectively to get a steady clientele. It was fear of not excelling or doing well that kept me from pursuing something that I could have easily done and perfected over time. Imagine how far I could've gone if I had been more confident.

Have you ever had that happen? Have you ever been in a situation where you weren't bold or confident and you missed a golden opportunity? 

We all have, but we can't continue the cycle.

My new perspective on confidence and boldness in my talents and abilities stemmed from a recent message by my pastor. I'll link that video here. In a gist, he spoke a message on boldness and confidence over intimidation. After this message, I realized that if I was bold enough to ask God for greater things to happen in my life, I had to take greater faith moves. In order for me to enter into a greater level in life, I not only needed a greater level of faith, but I needed take bigger risks. And, you can't take risk with intimidation. It requires fearlessness and confidence.

So, as I looked at my fears and the things that I was intimidated to do, I asked myself, "What's the worst that can happen?" Ultimately, I realized the worst "they" could say is, "No." But, "no" doesn't stop the vision. It just means that there is another avenue that I must fearlessly explore. I've stepped out in faith and watched how God has opened doors that I knocked on in boldness that would have remained closed with intimidation.

What doors has fear been holding closed in your life? Is it a business launch, career change, or going back to school?

Free yourself of intimidation and walk in boldness and confidence. Make a fearless move this week and watch what happens.
