Was there a time in your life when you were asked to do something but you were afraid you cannot do it and fail?
Richard Branson once said, “If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!”
The Nike brand tagline also says, “Just do it.”
You might tell me, “Sarah, it is not easy!” Yes, it is not easy but let me state the not-so-obvious:
1. They trusts you. Admit it. Not everyone in this life will be given a chance like you. And if this is an amazing opportunity, the person who’s offering you trusts you and believes in you that you CAN do it… so should you (anak) haha
2. They see you. They don’t just see you as a person, as an object but they see greatness in you. They see that immense potential in you. You may not clearly know what it is now… be patience with yourself and trust that small part of you shouting “I CAN DO IT!”
On my part, everytime I am given a chance- the first thing comes to my mind are the worst cases scenarios and in few moments… I mostly say, “SURE, why not? Let see what I can.”
How about you, what do you do when given an amazing oppotunity? Comment below and share some thoughts and tips!
