Ditching Excuses & Pushing Yourself
Maybe it's just hormones & I'm simply overreacting a little.
But either way, mood swings suck. They let you make excuses, stop you from getting yourself out there and don't let you take a risk. So I've decided that for next week I'm going to try to do more things that frighten me, and take that leap of faith outside of my comfort zone. I'm honestly not sure how well this is going to go, but I'm willing to give it a damn good try.
3 Ways to Push Yourself & Stop Letting Your Mood Decide What You Can & Cannot Do:
1. DON'T EXPECT OTHERS TO LEND YOU A HAND
Because, well, they won't. Although it is nice when someone comes around and give you a mental push of encouragement (hugs to all of the best friends out there!) you've got to pick yourself up and jump off yourself.
Whether that's talking to a friend you don't speak to often or literally jumping off a platform down a zip line... It's up to YOU.
2. RESIST F.O.F. (FEAR OF FAILURE)
People always told me that no matter if I failed or not, the important part was that I tried. I've always been the shy girl at school... Ever since I've switched schools, I noticed that I chat to way more people than I did before, and even joined a few sports teams, allowing me to meet even more like-minded people.
Letting go of my old school was probably the best decision I've ever had to make.
3. DO ONE THING THAT SCARES YOU EVERY DAY.
If someone asks you to go and hang out with them and a big group of people whom you've never talked to (whiilleee being pretty claustrophobic on your own) to just say yes.
Because let's face it- there's more to gain then there is to lose.
Maybe we could do it together...?
Why don't you post your fear and how you're going to face up to it this week in the comments below?
Good luck and I'll let you know how I get on in next week's blog.
