Most people never go after their dreams because they fear what other people think. People pleasing can keep you from living a brave life. You become a part of their ideology and begin to doubt yourself. These 3 ways will give you the confidence to step out of your comfort zone and realize that you and only you can live your life.
1. Recognize that you have the power to create the life you desire. You only get one life. If you live it for everyone else, you've missed out on your opportunity. If you can dream it, you can achieve it and you do not need to ask for permission to be your own man or woman. Oftentimes children will live a life through their parent's eyes and not go towards a profession they desire. It's ok to live that brave life and disappoint a few people. Make certain you seek success so they will be proud.
2. Don't be afraid to go left when everyone else goes right. The status quo is set up to go right because we have been customized and taught that going left will get you in trouble or you risk standing out like a sore thumb. So what!! Be different and take the chance. This is your opportunity to prove everyone wrong or at least not live in the moment of "what if".
3. Gain authority in your voice. Your voice has power, however, it may be drowned out by the company you associate with. They may include talking you out of what you hope to be or do. Don't be afraid to speak and disagree. You must listen to sound reason and never second guess yourself. Usually your first thought is that voice of reason. Be mindful, people are often fearful of where they have never been. The voice of others can deter you.
