Tons of times in life we get paralysed by fear and that stops us from doing things we actually really want to do. That's completely normal, it's how life works. I've felt that so many times in the past (and every now and then in the present too), and it usually comes with the fact of feeling too unexperienced, too green, and how the different scenarios we're facing intimidate us into not even trying to accomplish a task.

But, you know what? Doors never open if we don't dare to knock, that's an important lesson to learn, even if it sounds extremely obvious. Being a rookie at something is tough, I'm not going to lie, no one likes feeling like they're not good enough, but, if we manage to go through and over that idea, if we dare to jump and, most importantly, if we care sufficiently to try and excel, soon enough we acquire enough experience and actually become seniors at life.

This, as most things in life, is easier said than done. I get intimidated and scared a lot but, as a personal challenge, I'm trying to be fearless and start asking questions, start giving myself the credit I deserve (while still being nice, just a bit less modest) and I think it works. It's about believing that you can be incredible and achieve whatever you set your mind into. Of course, along the way, we learn that we're more suited for some things than others; but the important thing here is to be braver and start knocking on those doors until one opens. Trust me, one will open eventually.

// Nos paralizamos muchas veces en esta vida y eso nos impide hacer cosas que realmente queremos hacer. Eso es completamente normal, es como funciona la vida. Yo he sentido eso tantas veces en el pasado (y de vez en cuando en el presente también, eh), y usualmente viene con el hecho de tener poca experiencia, de estar muy verde, y cómo los diferentes escenarios a los que nos enfrentamos nos intimidan a ni siquiera intentar completar una tarea.

Pero, ¿saben qué? Las puertas nunca se abren si no nos atrevemos a tocarlas, esa es una lección importante qué aprender, aún cuando suena extremadamente obvio. Ser un novato en algo es difícil, no les mentiré, a nadie le gusta sentir que no es lo suficientemente bueno, pero, si logramos enfrentarnos y superar esa idea, si nos atrevemos a brincar y, más importante, si nos importa lo suficiente como para intentar y sobresalir, antes de lo esperado adquirimos suficiente experiencia para volvernos más diestros en la vida.

Esto, como muchas cosas en la vida, es más fácil dicho que hecho. Yo me intimido y asusto mucho pero, como un desafío persona, estoy tratando de ser más valiente y comenzar a preguntar cosas, comenzar a darme el crédito que merezco (mientras sigo siendo amable, sólo un poco menos modesto) y creo que funciona. Por supuesto, sobre el camino, aprendemos que somos más aptos para ciertas cosas que otras; pero, lo importante aquí es tener más valor y comenzar a tocar esas puertas hasta que alguna se abra. Confíen en mí, alguna  abrirá, eventualmente.
