Heart don’t fail me now. Courage don’t desert me. Don’t turn back now that we’re here.
People always say: “Life is full of choices.” No one ever mentions fear.

In chasing dreams, fear is very common; especially when you start comparing yourself to others and their talent level. When looking at whatever goal you’re trying to achieve, whether it be writing a novel, losing weight, or winning a major sports competition, analyzing how others are doing may not help you – in fact, it may hinder your performance. When you focus all your energy on other people, you lose sight of your own advancements. You start to slowly tear yourself apart by wondering why you can’t do something or aren’t already where someone else is in their ambitious journey. And this can sometimes cause you to stop and run away from your dreams, giving up entirely because of heightened insecurities. What you have to do to continue progressing is to stay focused on what you’re doing and how you can improve upon your current abilities. Be confident in all the hard work you’ve done in order to accomplish that goal. Believe in yourself and you’re more than half way there. ©
