Be Fearless

Do something that you’re scared to do. It’s time to take risks in your life. Try something you feel that you’ll fail and won’t be good at. Get out of your comfort zone.

Think about it for a minute. What is life if you’re not willing to try something different? Imagine just for one second all of the purpose that you’re filled with. We all have talents deep down in us, but we have to be willing to unleash our greatness.

It’s okay to be nervous. It’s okay to be scared. But it’s not okay to cheat yourself. I encourage you to take a step forward. Then take another one. Now keep on moving forward and don’t look back. It takes courage to do something that you’re not sure of, but it takes greater courage to make up in your mind that you won’t be stagnated anymore.

Whatever it is you want to do, do it now. You’ve visualized it. You’ve dreamed about it. You’ve wanted this for a long time. Do this for YOU. It’s time to get self-motivated! It’s time. It’s YOUR time! Your purpose is waiting on you. Don’t allow yourself to wait any longer.

Imagine all of the possibilities that are waiting for you. Just imagine.

Encouraging Poem

Encouragement for YOU

So, you want to give up
Nothing’s working out for you
Every time you try to rise above
Something knocks you right back down.
You try to stay strong
You try to be positive
But the pressure gets the best of you.

Life has taken you on a ride.
A ride filled with many disappointments.
Trying to get ahead
Trying to live a good life
Trying to do what’s right.

Need an opportunity.
Need someone to believe in you.
Need a chance to show the best in you.
Pressure on every side
You want to give up
Giving up in not an option
Keep your chin up!

Things are overwhelming right now
Everything is going wrong
Nothing seems to be going right
Keep your head up
Hold it up with pride!

Don’t you dare give up!
Don’t you dare look down on yourself.
Don’t you dare think that you don’t matter.
Don’t you dare think that you’re not loved.
Don’t you dare throw it all away.

See the BEST in yourself!
Take care of yourself.
Be good to yourself.
Respect yourself.
Love yourself.

Make today count.
Make today different.
Make today a new day for new beginnings.
Make today YOUR day!

YOU are somebody! Yes you are!
No matter what anybody else has to say.

YOU count! Don’t ever forget that.
