What stops you from doing what you what to do? Fear of judgement? Fear of failure? Your own insecurities? I think that for most of us, it's usually a mixture of all of the above. For me, it's always been a mixture of all of the above. It's human nature that we don't want to hurt our egos. That we want to protect ourselves and stay in our safe zone. Because failure hurts. Losing hurts. Getting told "no" hurts. But I think what hurts more than anything is regret. Taking a look at yourself and thinking, why didn't I just try? The time passed anyways, what was I so scared of?
I had a chance to spend part of this summer with my grandparents in Poland and I saw regret first hand. My grandpa, 89, telling me the things he did in his life and the things he wishes he would have done. I tell him that he lived an amazing life and did so many honourable things. But my words don't lessen the look of regret. And at 89, when you don't have the same abilities as you did when you were 18, or 25, or hell even 50, it's simply too late. Your window has passed, and you can only look back at the life you created for yourself and reflect.
My wish for our growing GlamPod community is that the excitement of winning trumps your fear of failure. That whatever you want to create, build, or experience - just take the risk and try. At the end of the day, the only person you have to face is yourself. Go out and get it. #betruetowhoyouare #glamfam
