The Price of Being Self-Conscious

“Challenge yourself and take a risk.”

One of the biggest roadblocks women face when learning new things is the fear of doing it wrong. We worry what others will think, and fear being judged by our peers.

Unfortunately, this often encourages us to play it safe or not even try. So, many opportunities come and go, because we’re afraid to look foolish.

If you want to grow as a woman, it’s time to stop worrying. Growth requires you to let down your guard and stop being self-conscious.

The reality is that others don’t pay as much attention as you may think. Even if they do, are they going to remember three weeks from now? Probably not.

Resolve to take a risk, to put negative comments out of your head, and, most importantly, to forget about doing it wrong. If you let yourself, you will succeed – and inspire others to follow in your footsteps.
