Are things you really want to do in life but fear is holding you back? For me it was MY fear of what others would think. You get pigeon-holed into the person everyone expects you to be, and busting out of that mold takes effort and boldness. Let me encourage you - the only way you’ll know is if you push past your comfortable norm and DO the thing you want, BECOME the person you know you were meant to be. • You might not be confident starting out; in fact you probably won’t be. When I went to nursing school at 47 believe me there were lots of demons raging in my head telling me I was a fool for leaving a secure job, and telling me that at “my age” it would be harder to learn (🙄 I graduated with honors and told those beasts to shut up! 😘) • When I started losing weight and entered my first 5k you can bet every fear I could dream up tried to hold me back ( then I ran 10ks and a few halves) • When I became a health coach it wasn’t others that mocked me, it was that mean girl in my head (and here I am 3 years later rocking it) • I didn’t gain confidence in any of those things by sitting on my hands - I gained the confidence by DOING, sometimes well and sometimes botching it - but always with resilience learning, applying, and trying again. • My point? What’s holding you back .... is it ........ YOU? • #befierce #confidence #speak #findyourvoice #belight #attraction #bossbabe #coachlife #nurse #iowagirl #universityofiowa #alumni #canttakethataway
