I know we all fear the unknown. We don’t know if we are good enough. We don’t know if we can live up to our dreams. We don’t know if we have enough will power to keep pushing every day to become a success.
How do we know if we don’t try?
That’s my problem. I’m too afraid to even try. I’ve always been this way. As you may know, my next goal is to become a personal trainer. I have had the money set aside for about a month now to buy the materials so I can start studying. For some reason, I can’t force myself to press “place order”. I seriously don’t know why. Or maybe I do:
- I’m scared I won’t pass.
- I’m scared I’m not social enough.
- I’m scared of not remembering the material I studied.
- I’m scared I don’t have enough confidence in myself to be a great trainer.
I see so many fitness enthusiasts passing their tests all the time to become great motivators and have promising careers. I know I can learn the content. I also know there are many resources out there to help me succeed. So why am I so nervous and doubtful of myself? I know when you are a personal trainer, in the beginning you really have to really sell yourself to build a clientele. I have never been in sales. I don’t want to force a person into something that is not right for them or they don’t want to do.
I know I am going to go through with it within the next week or two. The great passion I have for fitness and healthy living far outweighs being nervous and the fear of the unknown. I’m way too excited to let anything hold me back.
I know so many of us struggle with this in so many aspects of our lives. This is just me saying my words out loud and asking for your opinion. Am I crazy? Am I over thinking this? Do you analyze your future in great detail?
