Give It A Shot by Emasky4real(m): 8:36am On Oct 23, 2017
Give it a shot!

Have you ever found yourself in a state where you know exactly what you should do and believe you have all it takes to do it but due to fear and some limiting beliefs kept the idea to yourself without giving it a shot? If you have been there, you would know how painful that can be.

You are probably thinking you are too young or need more skill to implement the idea. At some other time you might think you need to get some certifications.
Even when you don’t default in any of the above areas, you may be wondering what people would say if you give it a shot.

It is quite normal to think that way, but never allow such mindset to stop you from doing what you ought to do. The biggest mistake you can ever make is to expect to be as skillful as your role model or mentor before you implement your idea.

You know what? Everyone you see at the top today was once at the bottom. People who are highly skillful in one area or the other today know nothing about those areas at a time.
The way to go is to learn, and practice, and if you make mistake, learn from your mistake and keep improving on your performance.

An expert didn’t become an expert by being perfect at the beginning, an expert is someone who has made every possible mistake any new comer could make in a particular field and has learned the right approach to such mistakes. This is often achieved by studying, learning and practicing. By making mistakes and learning from them.

To become an expert, you must first start as an amateur. Equip yourself with knowledge as much as you can, then start. Let go of your fears, if possible do it afraid. If you fail, people might make jest of you. It is normal to be mocked.

You don’t become anything by just thinking you want to become it, you become what you want to become by performing the task that is related to the title you are seeking.

A writer writes, a speaker speaks to people in forums or seminars. A pastor preaches to people in the church, an author writes a book, a singer composes songs and sings.

The road to being is doing. Mere intention will make you nobody; you must bend down and get your hands dirty.
If you don’t try you can never succeed, neither can you fail. It you don’t give it a shot, how would you know you can be who you wanted to be?

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Nobody and not even you can tell what you can do until you do it.”

Your potential is unlimited, and you are more talented, creative and more powerful than you think.
Never allow fear and self-limiting beliefs to hold you down.

Be unstoppable.

Just give it a shot and see how it turns out.
