When it comes to how you influence others, are you inspiring them to take chances and not fear making a mistake, or are you cautioning them with examples of things that could go wrong?
I was raised with so much caution that I felt nervous majority of the time. Afraid of doing something wrong, trying to not get into trouble, or cause someone pain or upset.
Childhood is where conditioning occurs. It's where you create your habits and patterns that you carry into your adulthood. So sit back and reflect on what you have been conditioned to believe, of yourself and how you perceive life.
With becoming aware and healing of the habits/patterns that no longer serve you, you become capable of being a positive influence towards others who may be on a personal growth journey. Life is all about taking chances.
