Don’t be Afraid to Take the First Step

on

Why is taking the first step always the hardest?

Why people are so scared of stepping out very first?

It happens! Even it’s me as well. I was afraid to move out first, and then to come out from my comfort zone. It’s really, really very hard.

What’s the reason?

It’s our insecurities that push us back and we get scared to move ahead. But, we forget that the greatest person of today was once a beginner. Yes, he also faced lots of insecurities, challenges, and fear of coming out for the very first time. However, he did it and overcame his fear. Hurray!!!

Yes, it’s not easy to take the first step and face the world. But, you are not alone, your ideas, thoughts, willpower, vigor accompany you that keep pushing you ahead to do it. And, you will do it.

Don’t let your fear overpower your willingness to do something; rather beat it with your determined smile to do what you love that makes your day.

Coming out of your shell is not rocket science, but it requires the inner fire that helps you grow at every stage of your life.

You can’t avoid the failures, neither you can step out of your line. What is important is to learn from them, and find the right path that develops success from these failures. Just remember:

Everything you want is on the other side of fear. -Jack Canfield

And, you need to wipe out that fear.

Precisely, the stepping stones to success are:

1 Draft a plan (that makes you contented & happy)

– Devote your time to it and dive deeply into the matter

– Come up with a bunch of ideas and sort out the best of them

– Prepare yourself with a strategy to move out (Don’t think whether it will work or not!)

– Time to step out. Go for it!

It’s not just this short and snappy article that throws the light on overcoming fear. There is a myriad of such compositions.

And, no matter you have read 4-5 or more than 500 such pieces, the crux is to weed out your fear and let the world see the confident you, who is ready to chase the goal and achieve it for sure.

Don’t forget– You are unique! Your ideas are unique! Your vision is beyond the line! Your goal is in front of your eyes! Simply, transform the failures into the building rocks, and you will start walking on your pathway confidently.

      When you allow fear to take over and rule your actions, you postpone those challenges that really matter to you. The fear of taking the first step takes precedence and perhaps you’ll end up spending more time imagining the possible risks than getting enough courage to go after what you truly want. Yes, it’s natural for human beings to be apprehensive in the face of what’s unknown or challenging. Because getting out your comfort zone makes you restless and awakens the insecurities you carry deep inside.

      The fear of taking the first step is the main thing that sabotages your dreams, both big and small. It’s precisely in that first step where most people get stuck because fear takes a hold of you. However, if you get going, then your fears will magically dissolve. As soon as you hit the road, you’ll most likely end up realizing that you’re a lot more capable than you thought you were when you began.

      Taking the first step means going towards a different place. Somewhere new, where things may not go as you planned or expected. Taking the first step means exposing yourself to failure and rejection.

    Thanks for this inspiring post. The reason why I have social anxiety is because of the fear of taking the first step to reach out. I fear of how people will perceive and judge me in general, or at worst, criticize me. After your encouragement, I hope I will be able to conquer this anxiety/fear one day.

      Identify what it is you’re protecting yourself from or what you’re trying to avoid. Knowing whether you’re afraid of failing if you’re not able to overcome the challenges that come your way or afraid of specific past experiences. In this regard, write it all down, explain it to yourself and don’t let it influence you below your level of consciousness. Thus, by recognizing the existence of your fears, you’ll be in a better position to manage them.
