How to Just Go for It

Whether it's quitting your job, kissing a girl, or something else that's making knots in your stomach -- there's no magical technique. You have to free your mind and just go for it.

Instructions

  • Step 1: Set a limit on worrying Set a time limit on worrying. For five minutes, focus hard on your fears and the worst possible outcomes you can imagine. Then, stop and move on.
  • Step 2: Visualize Motivate yourself by visualizing completing the desired action and imagining the positive feelings of relief and accomplishment you will have later.
  • TIP: Meditate and chant a positive mantra.
  • Step 3: Prepare Rehearse your actions in front of a mirror until you feel more confident.
  • Step 4: Release tension Be aware of the tension in your body. Focus on your breathing as you relax each of your muscles to release it.
  • Step 5: Take the first step Set things in motion by doing the simplest part first. No matter how big your task, remember that every journey begins with a single step.
  • FACT: A 37-year-old woman named Hilary Lister became the first quadriplegic woman to sail solo around Britain in 2009.
