You aren't good enough.
I doubt if you will be able to pull it off.
That can only be done by ...
Used to hearing these statements? Used to doubting yourself. Today I have an empowering message for you.
You need to be bold.
As you probably know, I'm a heavy metal fan and my favourite band is Skillet. So, one of the band members, Jen Ledger, has a side project in which she releases some awesome singles. The single that has been making me go crazy for the past few days is called BOLD.
This song is about NOT believing that you are not good enough and that you can never overcome your limitations. It is basically motivation on steroids. It just made me think of my personal experience with this. There are many times where I let opportunities pass by because of the worst possible reason - fear. I was not bold because I was afraid. I finally made the small, but highly significant and lifechanging decision to be bold.
I made the following pledges to myself (extracted from the lyrics of the song):
No more doubt
No more small and scared
I'm not broken beyond repair
No more fear
No more playing safe
I will not be chained
I AM GOING TO BE BOLD
Let me stop here. Instead of me having a long and winded conversation, I want you to immediately head over to her YouTube channel and hear the message yourself. I hope this message will inspire someone. Click the link below!
