“You cannot let a fear of failure, or a fear of comparison, or a fear of judgement stop you from doing what’s going to make you great. You cannot succeed without the risk of failure, you cannot have a voice without the risk of criticism and you cannot love without the risk of loss. You must go out and take these risks. Do what is uncomfortable, scary and hard, but pays off in the long run. Because without this struggle, what is your success anyway? You have to trust your own voice, your own ideas, your honesty, your vulnerability and through this you will find your own way. You do not have to be fearless, just don’t let fear stop you. Live like this as best as you can and I guarantee you will look back on a life well lived.” Do what makes you great.
