[vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″ id=”” class=”post-content” style=””][text_output]The people we call friendly are usually those who can quickly discard what they think. They easily put aside the thoughts that will arise naturally. These thoughts will match the situation and tell you how awkward you are. Everybody has them, but friendly people can ignore them.
Every athlete has them before an important game and every performer before they take the stage. These thoughts WILL come, but ignore them and step forward. How many times have we trusted our thoughts and been proven wrong? Every person you meet has personal hurdles. The difference is that some don’t have time to sit before them, they jump over and keep going.
Thoughts can either trap us or inspire us. Michael Jordan, the famous basketball player always says the critics were my greatest inspiration. Every time they said I couldn’t do it, I had to prove them wrong. The thoughts will say, you’ll make a fool of yourself. Push your thoughts aside and talk anyway. If you’re afraid to talk, talk about your fear, that’s the one thing you can speak about with confidence.
Your greatest weakness isn’t your weakness itself, it is fear of what may happen. That’s like refusing to go outside because it may rain. If you think it may rain, take an umbrella, but go out. Talk about things that you’re comfortable with, but… talk. Staying inside your thoughts is a recipe for depression. Open up and let the sunshine in.
A chance of rain also means a chance of sunshine, focus on the sunshine.[/text_output][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTNDc3R5bGUlM0UlMEEuZW50cnktdGh1bWIlMjBpbWclMjAlN0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjBtYXgtaGVpZ2h0JTNBJTIwNDAwcHglM0IlMEElN0QlMEElMEEucG9zdC1jb250ZW50JTIwJTdCJTBBJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwdGV4dC1hbGlnbiUzQSUyMGp1c3RpZnklM0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjB0ZXh0LWp1c3RpZnklM0ElMjBpbnRlci13b3JkJTNCJTBBJTdEJTBBJTNDJTJGc3R5bGUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row]
