How many times have you heard any of the following warnings?
Don’t, you’ll embarrass yourself.
You’ll look foolish.
Stop acting that way people are watching.
I wouldn’t if I were you.
You’ve probably heard some form of these statements in your life and usually from well-meaning people that care for you, the ones that are closest to you.
But, are they concerned about you embarrassing yourself or how it will reflect on them?
These are the same people that line up to watch others fail at things, and are entertained the world over by artists, actors and business people that continuously risk embarrassing themselves in the name of entertainment and commerce.
What are you stopping yourself from doing because you might look foolish?
Are you playing it so safe because people are watching?
In the grand scheme of life, your failures, embarrassing moments and mishaps will be forgotten by others in a blink of an eye.
However, if you keep worrying about embarrassing yourself every time you think about trying something new then you might lead a ‘safe life,’ but where’s the adventure in that?
