Trying something new is quite an experience. Scary, interesting, daunting? You can choose which word seems more fitting for each moment.

Whether you are trying new food, raising your hand for the first time to share your idea, or reaching out to your crush, not knowing what to expect can be an intense experience.

What if this falls apart? But what if this actually works out? Am I really prepared to do this? What if I do not fit well with my new team? What if I do not get along?

The questions seem endless and at moments like this, we need to pause.
Pause and remember that it is ok to feel scared about something we do not know. It is a natural reaction. What’s most important is what we will do in those moments.

What actions will we take when we face that moment of fear. What is our first reaction? And why would that be our reaction?

Feeling afraid to do something new is ok.
Feeling afraid to do something different is natural.

What you do with it is more important.

All it takes is one moment of pause to cut through the mountains.

With love,

Founder & CEO, InnovatorsBox
