About 2 nights ago I was having a phone conversation with my brand strategist and good friend, Tim Maina. We usually chat over Skype 2 days a week. Now Tim is somewhat of a crazy hero to me. He came from very humble beginnings here in Kenya to move to the US, with $400 in his pocket, to currently running his own successful branding agency. I asked him what drove him to where he is today. He told me he could not see himself becoming anything less than what his vision is: to be a success. And this is only the beginning!
Do you know how to develop unwaveringly unshakeable confidence in yourself? You have to face your fears. You have to do the thing you think you cannot do. To me, this is the SUREST way to be attain real belief in yourself!
So Tim challenged me during our conversation. He wants me to face my fear, claim my rightful place in the world and own the magnificent person I am becoming. He sees and expects nothing less of me. I appreciate the fact that he makes me feel uncomfortable about my current place. I know I deserve more, and the only way to do that is through constant execution, without letting the fear of intimidation and opinion stop you!
I suggest, if you want more from your life, that you have at least one influential friend in your life who demands that you better yourself every day, preferably, a person who you greatly admire and have a good relationship with. Because when you have someone like this in your life, then eventually, they will help you understand why it is so important to break through that one thing that is stopping you from becoming the success you envision. And that one thing may be your greatest fear.
You will break through your greatest fear.
Simply surround yourself with the right people, alway strive for better, and you will muster up the courage to overcome what you believe to be your worst nightmare right now.
I Believe In You!
