Sometimes you need to tell yourself to just go for it.

I'm naturally introverted and a bit of a perfectionist and there have been several times in my academic career when I was forced to overcome my anxieties, from difficult exams to public speaking. Often the only way to get through these uncomfortable situations was to just suck it up and try my best.

There's a saying that goes: The things that make you nervous in life are the things you should be doing. Often the most nerve-wracking experiences end up being the most rewarding.

If you're nervous about anything in life, just channel the courage of this 4th grade girl taking her first ski jump. (This is several months old but I still love it.)

"Here goes something... I guess..."
