The Story Of My Growth Over One Year
By Furqan • September 26, 2018
Here's the story of my growth over the past year. If anyone is inspired by this, that's wonderful.
I'd been stuck as this incredibly insecure, under-confident, fat sack and just scared individual for years and years and years. Since childhood I'd been stuck like this, and I'd just resigned to a life where I'd be afraid of everything and be this 'introvert' or whatever.
But then it all started changing. Something clicked, and in over a period of 6 months I finally managed to stick to one of my diets, and lost 90 lbs bringing me from overweight straight down to underweight.
This taught me that I could change myself.
One single time, I heard about a public speaking thing going on at my university, and for the first time, I actually managed to puck the courage to go there.
It was liberating. For the first time I was able to share my story, and able to do it in front of dozens of people potentially judging me, and suddenly all the random fears about speaking publicly started vanishing.
This taught me I could get rid of my fears.
It was from that point on my road to change went from a rocky mess to a full-on empty highway, and I started changing rapidly.
Using the fact that I could change, and that I could get rid of my fears, I started working on them one by one. My fear of greeting strangers, my fear of talking to strangers, my fear of asking simple questions I should 'already know', my fear of hanging out with people, my fear of not knowing things, my fear of being myself, my fear of being 'weird'...
All of them. Gone.
And I still continue to progress to this day, I've never stopped.
At the end, my 'weakness' of being socially incompetent for so long became my strength as it taught me how to change, as I now strive to become far better than the average, and the absolute best I can be.
