Are you a person who likes to learn new things or do you cringe at the thought of even trying? I have had to get a grip on learning new things and putting myself out in the world, and from personal experience, it has done the best things for me and my life.
I have always been shy, and my self-esteem has lingered but making myself go out and do something out of the ordinary has made me take a look at what makes me the happiest. Learning new things can be scary but once you take the dive and there is no going back the personal growth you get in return is well worth the hassle. Here are some ways to take the plunge into your adventure, you’ll thank me later.
Explore the uncomfortable.
Being uncomfortable is never fun, but sometimes we do our best in awkward situations. This is where your strength comes from because you have to go out and do something unfamiliar to you and you have to overcome the want to run away from it. Embrace being uncomfortable.
Once you are uncomfortable, get past your fears.
Fear is an obstacle, and you are the one that has to overcome this obstacle. Fear holds us back and letting go of fear is most of the battle. Know that you can and will be able to do whatever you put your mind to, and that fear is the evil villain holding you back.
Don’t care what others think.
This is a hard one to accomplish, and it took me many years to make this a realization. Caring about what others think just keeps you in a box and does not allow you to have your freedom. If someone has an opinion great, but that should never hold you back from doing something great.
I didn’t know.
Imagine all the things you could do that you didn’t know if you would not have tried. How crazy would it be to take a look at your life and realize that there was so much more that could have been done and you chose not to explore your interests?
Learning is growing.
Every time we learn we grow. Never stop learning in your life. That is what life is all about is taking these experiences and learning everything we can from them. Learning is what makes our lives worth living.
It doesn’t matter how big or small the fear is overcoming; this emotion is building bravery. You don’t have to be a superhero to be brave and powerful. Know your worth and make those changes and wear your courage on your sleeve.
Life is to short to not explore those interests.
