Fear🔺it can paralyse us. today, i spoke at europe’s biggest business exhibition. 👆🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
i used to be the student that would go bright red 😳 the moment the teacher asked me to read out loud. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
i used to be the friend who’d have so much to say yet remain silent because i was afraid that my friends would think my comment was irrelevant. 🤐 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
i used to be the girl who’d never tell a guy i liked him because i was terrified of rejection. 🤦🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
fear. is. paralysing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
tell the 16 year old lauren that she’d be speaking at europe’s biggest business exhibition and she’s laugh right in your face. that was only 5 years ago. and here she is now. doing the thing 🙌🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
it was under 5 years ago that i started saying yes to getting uncomfortable and embracing what i was afraid of. and guess what?! since then i’ve grown exponentially not only with my business and social media, but also as a person. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
by allowing fear to prevent you from saying what you want to say, doing what you want to do, and being who you want to be, you’re not truly living. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
