While browsing Instagram today, I came across the above quote by J. K. Rowling “Anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve“. And, it made me thinking about many things happened in my life in the last couple of years. And, it triggered different emotions in me, which was mostly regret.
I lost many opportunities in my life because I didn’t have got enough nerve. And, I ran away from facing some of the challenges life threw at me because of fear and self-doubts, and I have always took the easy exit out, when things get tough.
As much as this quote made me feel sad and sorry for myself and the opportunities I let go; it made me realize the change I need to make. Things I need to work on before pursuing my dreams so I don’t freak out at the first obstacle and ran away. And then live in regret and sorrow and blame it on life!
Throughout the last week, I have been busy writing my 2017 goals (soon, I will be posting about how I’m planning my goals differently this year), and getting all excited about it. And now, I am fully aware that I don’t need to set my goals only, but I need to set what I need to do in case I faced an obstacle. And, how to overcome the life challenges, the fear, and doubts in my head.
This quote gave me a different perspective on setting goals. Therefore, I believe I will be setting the challenges I might face while working on achieving my goals, and workout different approaches to overcome them. And never ever let my fear and self-doubt defeat me ever again and take away my dreams. Hopefully this year will be the year I overcome my fears for good.
To a better version of Me in 2017 ….
