Fear is the number 1 reason why people don’t chase their dreams. They’re scared of failing, of being rejected, of not being enough. Some even fear success, not knowing how they’ll deal with it.
I’m guilty of it too.
I sat down to write an application for a 6-month internship at and I got stuck. So many negative thoughts went through my mind that I stopped doing the application and went to do something else.
But you know what? YOU ARE ENOUGH!
You are enough. Say it with me. “I am enough.”
Apply for that internship, email that brand you wanted to work with because if you’re not the right fit for them right now, you might be a perfect fit in 6 months. If you’re still stuck, have a look at my list of things I’m looking for in a career, and write your own list.
There are so many motivational books available, from being a Girlboss to feeling the fear and doing it anyway. There’s something for everyone and I highly recommend them if you’re feeling stuck. You don’t even have to believe it. Hearing someone else succeeding often lights a fire within you that makes you hungry.
