Approval will not keep you alive for long, and approval is what folks are seeking when they allow fear to stop them from trying something new. Fear of rejection, fear of disapproval, fear of being afraid….but what good is acceptance and approval, no matter what the fear may be, if the end result is self-rejection, and that is the greatest fear I have. It keeps me trying new things because I know I am inspired and unstoppable. When you are brave enough to try new things, the process gives you the courage and confidence, no matter the outcome, to keep trying new things, which keeps you vital and alive. The theory of something may keep us afraid, but the experience of something keeps us alive, and happy!
