You are the one who gets to chose whether you let your fear control your life or whether you take the chance and step out of your comfort zone.
Personally, when it comes to photography or even this whole business thing, I am forcing myself to step out of my comfort zone each time.
It is difficult to me to meet with strangers and to take photos of them. I always have so many ideas that I want to implement. But right before a photoshoot I always think that the results won't be good, that I mess up and that both, the person that I am shooting with and I invested our time for nothing. Usually, that is when a lot of self-doubt will creep up on me and usually that is when I come to the point of not implementing any of my ideas.
When I asked for advice in the @buildandbloom facebook group (unpaid ad) I received a lot of encouraging but also inspirational words that really helped me change my mindset 💗
I feel like the many advices I received don't just apply to my photography but also to my business as a creative virtual assistant.
So the next time you are limiting yourself, try and think of the things that you will miss out on if you let your fear control your life. These things can be:
➵ opportunities for you to grow and network
➵ you will never be able to move forward
➵ you won't have beautiful pictures
➵ you will always stay within your safe bubble
➵ you will not live the life you are (secretly) dreaming of
➵ you will always feel jealously towards others who live your dream
PS: Deep inside YOU KNOW, you have what it takes. Now embrace it! If I can do it, so can you.
