Three things that will not make you nervous, that will not scare you, that will not make you lose your sleep, that will not make you cry when you are rejected.
- Things you don’t care about.
- Things that are boring for you.
- Things that have nothing to do with your purpose.
The point is that when are onto something that matters, you will feel anxiety and fear. That’s a sign of the stakes you are putting on that thing. What’s important is acknowledging the feelings, accepting where they come from, and finding ways to cope with them so that you can function and progress.
It’s never been about feeling confident and fearless. That’s a lie for Hollywood movies.
