My Greatest Fear
What am I afraid of? No its not heights, roller coasters or the dark. And even though spiders, snakes, and flying insects give me quite a scare, nothing frightens me more than failure.
Yes, I am afraid that I won't succeed. I worry that I won't live up to the expectations of my family and myself. I'm scared that all of the negative things that people said I would be, come true. I constantly think about not achieving the goals that I have set for myself, living the life that I have dreamed about or being the person that I have always wanted to be.
But the very thing that frightens me, is the same thing that drives me.
I work hard so that even if I am never as successful as I want to be, I can at least say that I tried. In my eyes, trying and knowing that you gave it your all, is just as important as actually achieving those goals. "For the race is not given to the swift nor to the strong, but to those who endure until the end."
I am so grateful for a wonderful woman who instilled in me drive and perseverance. I am proud to say that I never give up. No matter what, I push myself. And when I start to lose motivation, I search for it. My grandma's memory inspires me. My family's expectations drive me. The story of my God and my Jesus push's me. And the fact that there are so many young girls who need to be mentored, motivates me.
One day, I hope to inspire and motivate young queens just as other did for me. I am so very blessed to have had the opportunity to cross paths and come in contact with so many inspirational women. My wish is to one day be that same inspiration to others.
So what is it that scares you? What is your greatest fear? The only way to overcome a fear is to face it. Whatever it is that frightens you, make it the thing that makes you fight.
