In the most recent episode of G’day World; Cameron Reilly, Richard Giles and Tony Goodson were talking about successful people and how they make their own luck. One important point really stood out to me:
Successful people aren’t afraid to put themselves out there and make an arse of themselves.
This is a major problem for me. I’m the person who when confronted with a crowded room sits in a corner and avoids eye contact. I’m also a perfectionist and I won’t try something if I don’t think I can be great at it straight away. The few times I have put myself out there and had a go at something I thought I’d suck at I’ve discovered a talent I never knew I had.
So now I have a new goal. To stop caring about what everyone else thinks and just go after my dreams and to stop being so damned shy. If I continue over thinking everything my opportunities will disappear before I realise they’re there.
Edit: Wow its my 100th post. Rather appropriate really 🙂
