Fear of the Wrong Path
I don’t know if you’re like me, but it seems like I’ve always had a fear of fucking up.
I am insatiably curious and love to try new experiences. I have worked with a friend in a new start-up business, run my own massage therapy clinic, worked in healthcare, and (most recently) written a book and launched a speaking career.
My resume looks a little…well, let’s just say it’s a little disheveled!
Despite trying at least 3 different careers before 35, I am still afraid of taking the wrong path.
What if I screw it up?
What if I invest all my time and energy into something and then realize I’m not meant to be doing that?
There Is No “Wrong Path”
Now that’s very “tao” of me to say, isn’t it?
Your journey is your journey.
Your life is unequivocally, 100% yours (and no one else’s).
If you want to “mess it up,” it is absolutely yours to do so!
The point here is that the fear of not doing the “right” thing is irrelevant and a waste of your energy. So don’t be afraid to step out.
Take your step confidently with wonder and curiosity and watch the miraculous unfold before you. (Tweet)
Collect all the wonderful and exciting experiences you can pack into the present moment and watch the doors swing wide before you. (Tweet)
