I’m scared that I will walk into the spotlight and we’ll all see that I don’t have anything significant to offer.
What if what I have is insignificant?
What if I put it all out there and the world just shrugs, then walks away?
And then… that’s it. I went all in, and it didn’t work. It didn’t happen.
What if I’m just blowing hot air?
Truth: I have to keep taking steps out into the world, as my full “me,” regardless of the potential dangers — regardless of my fears. Because the potential positives are just too great… and the dangers in quitting are not just potential, they are certain.
