Don’t waste your Time by waiting for a Sign
Few years ago I was afraid; I was avoiding taking risks or doing things that could get me out of my comfort zone. I froze when I faced my fears and waited for signs (or help) until I could actually move forward. It was easier for me to take decisions while other made it for me. Don’t get me wrong, I was always motivated and always very ambitious, but played very safe and didn’t dare at all. Until I decided to change it.
The header on my website says- “The one the dares to dream”. It doesn’t mean that I am not afraid anymore, it does mean that I am facing my fears. When was the last time you let yourself dream? Did you think after “how can I achieve that”? or just left it as a dream?
Here’s an exercise that I do with myself anytime when I am afraid of doing something. ask yourself these questions:
- What am I afraid of?
- What will be considered as huge failure?
- What’s the worse thing that can happened to me if I do that?
- What will happened if I fail? is it big failure? Will it cost the death of someone?
- What am I going to lose if I don’t do it?
- What will I win if I do it?
After you dared yourself to do it, give yourself feedback-
- Was it that bad?
- Am I proud of yourself?
- Can I do it again? Better?
You will be surprise how it will become easier with time and I can promise you that you will start enjoying it and
When my friend Kfir Ben Simon came to visit me in London, I decided to shoot this video (and photos) with him to emphasise that fear and also the lost of not acting fast and dealing with it. I chose the song “Waiting for a Sign” by Radiohead drummer Philip Selway and I hope that after reading this and seeing the video, you won’t wait for signs anymore and you will be more proactive in your life for better achievements.
Here are some backstage photos from my shoot with my dear friend Kfir.
