BE FEARLESS: PUMA EN POINTE COLLECTION
Once you become fearless, life becomes limitless.
When the dreamy new PUMA En Pointe collection landed on my lap, I was completely taken aback by the subtle yet commanding array of pastel colours (ESPECIALLY the gorgeous pop of millennial pink) as well as the carefully constructed New York City Ballet inspired designs. But more so, the idea of fearlessness, which oozes out of this bold line, really struck a chord with me.
One of the most important lessons I have learnt over the last few years while starting up my own business (and in my general life), is that great things never come from comfort zones and they also come with a 100% guarantee of fear and risk-taking somewhere along the line, whether you like it or not.
I have realized that if I want to grow, get out of my comfort zone, make my dreams come true and be the best version of myself that I can’t let all my fears, doubts and worries dictate my life or hold me back. This is why I have become a big advocate for flexing your fearless muscle and becoming more comfortable with being uncomfortable (so much so that I even got the word fearless tattooed onto my hand last year).
To me, being fearless is not the total absence of fear and it definitely doesn’t mean that you are never scared (because realistically, it is impossible to go through life without fear). Being fearless means that despite your fears you choose to call BULLSHIT and have the confidence, bravery and courage to jump anyway! Being fearless means that you allow your confidence and courage to sit in the driver’s seat of your life.
SIDE NOTE: The fear I am referring to is not the life-threatening kind. If you are in mortal danger then please don’t try to be brave and jump! 😉
Take a second to imagine your life if you didn’t live in fear. Would you dare to think new thoughts, try new things, take risks, start again, find your happiness or let go of something that no longer serves you?
Stop thinking to yourself, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?” Because actually, who are you not to be?! Shine bright and don’t let fear hold you back. Never forget just how brave, fearless, bold and strong you are, OKAY?!
