I needed this video this morning, and I hope it inspires all of you too!
Will Smith gives this great example of facing your fears head on to get to the great things on the other side. He went skydiving in Dubai with friends a while back, and was really excited before it started to hit him like, “Yo, I’m really hopping out of a plane tomorrow….” The fear was real then! But he got there, and his skydiving instructor pushed him out a little earlier than expected so he wouldn’t chicken out. It turned out to be one of the most amazing experiences of his life! “The best things in life are on the other side of terror,” Will concluded.
That’s something I needed to hear right now in my life. I’m in a good place, but I’m working to get to new levels, and it’s really scary. It’s scary to move out of your comfort zone, to go after new opportunities, to pitch new ideas to your company, to start your own business, etc. But, once you push past that fear, and see what great things awaited you on the other side, it’s a feeling like none other. So I’m committed to continue to face my fears to get to my destiny and what God has for me. How about you?
Watch Will speak about his experience below!
