Perseverance and being able to keep the momentum when you want to start any new project can be indeed a big challenge, specially when you are doing something that you are not used to do and have to learn everything from scratch and at the same time face all the other challenges of overcoming the fears and insecurities that come with venturing into a new and unknown territory like this little blog is for me. It sounds ridiculous but im just being very honest. I must say that it is not easy for me to find the time to concentrate and be consistent in just writing something every day. I also am not sure about my writing skills and even just to understand how to make a blog looking good and appealing looks like a big mountain to me, but I refuse to get discouraged with all the obstacles and instead want to use this opportunity to overcome the fear of inadequacy and failure.
Usually the biggest obstacle is our own mind,we pay too much attention to our feelings of being incapable of this or that and we let our fears run wild instead of going ahead and be single-minded in whatever we purposed ourselves to do and just do it. If we only do our best with trust and faith, being willing to be humbled, make lots of mistakes, fall, get up and start again, we will be able to progress, learn new skills, develop new habits and have more confidence in our own abilities to accomplish anything. The secret is to never give up, let ourselves make lots of mistakes and face our fears. Who cares? I know we care a lot, but we should not because actually there is no mistakes, only a learning process and what sometimes looks like mistakes and failures to us are only stepping-stones that propels us to new heights and at the same time can be an inspiration to others that are facing those same feelings of inadequacy.
We are all gifted with immense capabilities and we can always develop and learn new ones for as long as we don’t place ourself in a place to small to grow. When we stretch ourselves and try new things that are out of our comfort zone we will discover our full potential and ability to do anything we want with faith and determination. There is no stopping us when we make up our minds and just do it, and do it now, facing anything that is on the way, putting ourselves on the spot and go for it.
If we can develop the art of persevering and learn to just keep going steady in our purpose in spite of all obstacles, difficulties, discouragement, feelings of inadequacy, or impossibility we can overcome anything and are able to accomplish our goals and have enough confidence to keep always moving forward and accomplish bigger things.
