Are you nervous?
Is there a little bit of uncertainty about the future?
And if so, is that really such a bad thing?
We can’t be totally sure that everyone will appreciate your speech or sermon.
Your boss may not like the quality of presentation you put forward.
And that business idea may or may not work.
If you’re doing anything important, failure is a very real option, so to feel nervous every now and then is OK.
Doesn’t that just mean that you’re doing something that matters?
Doesn’t that just mean that you care?
Success doesn’t come to those who thrust their chest out in false bravado.
It comes to those who take action in spite of their feelings of insecurity and uncertainty.
You could go through life entirely sure of what happens next.
Or you could live a life that makes a difference in the world.
