Do Something You’re Terrified of Doing

Filed under: General — Laura Moncur @ 2:57 pm

I saw this motivational poster on Holistic Cave and I need to read it every day.

The best way to gain confidence is to do something you're terrified of doing.

It reads:

The best way to gain confidence is to do something you’re terrified of doing.

Right now, I’m working on a new trailer project. I have been so scared of doing it wrong or ruining it that I have procrastinated working on it for two months. Understandably, it’s in pretty sad shape.

It’s from that era when the canvas was made out of tissue paper, or so it would seem by the way it has disintegrated.

The shape of the canvas isn’t an issue because I’m planning on making a canned ham style of camper out of it. The interior is good, so I was VERY happy to get this camper for only $200 despite the shape of the canvas.

The only problem is that I’m scared. The other two trailer projects I worked on didn’t require that I build anything. I have a pretty good eye for these things and I think it will be epic if I can just get up the confidence to do it. The thing is, I can’t wait for the confidence. The only way the confidence will come is if I just do it.
