1. Avoid choosing targets where the stakes are low
If you set a goal that’s in your comfort zone, you are setting the stakes very low. Failing in your safety net is another way of holding yourself back. If you fail there, you won’t really suffer a setback, you will simply be maintaining the status quo. If you don’t feel the slightest bit uncomfortable, you’re not really trying anything new. It’s good to feel stupid if you mess up!
2. Nobody wants you to fail
You may succeed, or you may fail. Not many people will care either way – but this is a good thing! You are only a small part of the big world, so this means that you can chase your dreams without worrying what other people think of you.
3. Even if it seems like an insurmountable task, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get started now
Feelings of uncertainty and fear tend to have a way of making you feel like you are unprepared.
