Have you ever failed?
Have you ever had something so bad happen to you that you have no clue how you'll overcome it?
Have you ever wondered why something you long so deeply for, can also make you scared stiff?
These days we hear the phrase "you're a fighter" quite a bit. This could be someone who beat cancer; someone who overcame being bullied; or someone who overcame all the odds to achieve their dreams. No matter which case, they are all fighters. They are all fighters and overcomers. They all made a comeback.
My whole life, I've thought that a fighter was someone who never failed, was never scared, never unsure, or never hesitant. Now that I have lived a little more and learned a lot more, I realized this is not true. I wrote each definition above. In any of those definitions does it say "not scared," "you'll never fail," "you'll know what to do"? No! It doesn't.
Fighters, overcomers, comeback kids are all people who have fallen, failed, been scared to death, not known the answers, but went for their dreams and lived their lives anyway.
You're going to fall. You're going to get hurt. You are going to be so scared that you can't move. It's all apart of living. If you don't dare, you won't get where you want to be. If you don't try, you won't know. But if you hurt yourself, if you fail and you get back up again and try again. You will be a true fighter, an overcomer and you will make a comeback. And one day you will find yourself right where you are supposed to be.
What would you do if you weren't afraid?
