Today Is The Day You Scare Yourself

Eleanor Roosevelt once said "Do one thing every day that scares you."

This is fantastic advice, but for those who don't ever "scare" themselves it is a bit hefty.

So let's begin by doing it today.

What she means by "scare yourself" is either:
  1. Literally scare yourself. Go to the Zoo and hold a tarantula or a snake. 
  2. Do something you are anxious about or uncomfortable with. I.E. Approach a cute girl/guy.
Since it's Friday, many of you will be going out tonight. I want you to do something today/tonight that scares you.

  • For guys and girls, approach someone you find attractive. 
  • If you're comfortable approaching, use a stronger, more direct approach.
  • Go to the bar/club solo. 
  • Dance like an idiot at the venue.
  • Go sing karaoke.
  • Go sing karaoke on a date.
  • Hit the gym.
And if you never go to bars/clubs...
  • Go to a bar or club.
    Obviously, I am tailoring the examples to the expected readership because there are far too many things that one could be scared of/uncomfortable with. It is up to you to decide what it is that frightens you.

    And then do it. Today.

    (If you end up reading this after Friday, I still recommend giving this a shot the day you read this. If you postpone it you'll most likely not do it).
