Freelancing Fears

Over the last month, I’ve been taking a freelancing course ( and developing a personal training service on top of my pharmacy school rotations. The deeper I get into freelancing, the more I get scared about failing. However, during these times I ask myself…what would I regret more? Sitting on my ass wondering what if or taking initiative by launching a service that I know people will value and help make people’s lives easier? As Ramit Sethi says, “If you’re going to fail, fail fast”.

To be completely honest, I never would of had the motivation to change and grow if it wasn’t for the breakup. When I compare myself now to a few months ago, I’m a changed person. I promise myself, I will never let my life just settle again. Life is too short and there’s so many things to experience in life. 

I think I’ll end with a quote.

“In life, people tend to wait for good things to come to them. And by waiting, they miss out. Usually, what you wish for doesn’t fall in your lap; it falls somewhere nearby, and you have to recognize it, stand up, and put in the time and work it takes to get to it. This isn’t because the universe is cruel. It’s because the universe is smart. It has its own cat-string theory and knows we don’t appreciate things that fall into our laps.”
