Quotes To Live By

Quote #11: Featuring Marisa Boulton

Hi, I'm Marisa Boulton, Community Corrections Manager for Midland County and member of the Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition. A quote that made me stop and shake my head yes, is "Be Brave Enough to Suck at Something New", shared on Facebook and sometimes credited to business book author, Jon Acuff. I can hear my friends, family and people who support me quietly whispering this when self-doubt or fear creeps in. We put some much pressure on ourselves to be the best at things. Think of the opportunities and experiences we miss when we let our fear and ego takeover. Next time you doubt yourself or are feeling timid or afraid think of this quote and here me cheering you on! Go on adventures, try a new class, sing that karaoke song, dance…get out of your comfort zone. This quote supports my wellbeing because I have made it my mantra to get me through times when I am having self-doubt and lacking confidence. So, what is something new you are going to try? You got this friends! This has been brought to you by the Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition's Quotes to Live By Series. Thank you for reading.
