Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will | Suzy Kassem
Not too long ago, I realized that I’d tucked away a number of dreams I once had and exchanged them for more “tangible” ones. I had stopped dreaming big because I thought those goals were unrealistic and therefore, a waste of time. I learned that I was settling for less than what I was capable of simply because I lacked the confidence to believe that I could achieve greater.
I reflected on the dreams I used to have and the idea of actually pursuing them and it terrified me. Yet, when I thought about the goals I had set for myself now, I was also terrified because they seemed so mediocre.
So, I was presented with the choice of either being terrified of pursuing my crazy dreams or being terrified of being mediocre.
Of course, then, I chose to be terrified while chasing my dreams. However scared I am of the unknown, I am also extremely excited for what the future has in store for me and that was a feeling I never had when I chose to settle.
I know that there are expectations for us to take a certain path in order to be successful: going to college, getting married, buying a car and a house, etc. For me, fear of ”staying on track” drove me to throw away my passions and dreams. With that, I discarded my belief in myself to accomplish amazing things.
When you’re given the choice to chase your dreams or play it safe, which will you choose?
Whether your dream is to become the next Guy Tang, work under Chef Gordon Ramsey, or make it to the NFL, I hope that you KEEP DREAMING and KEEP BELIEVING that YOU CAN DO IT. And I hope that you join me in fearlessly pursuing your dreams and challenging the limits of your potential. ✨✨
