Bonjour! Guten Tag! Ciao! Hello! Hi! Hey! My name is Lize and I am 22 years old. I come from Cape Town, South Africa, and for most of my life I was afraid to make my dreams reality. While studying towards a degree in Psychology, I am an aspiring novelist, writing the story that I have carried in my heart for all my life.
For a long time, I hid my true self, listening to voices that were not really my own. But now, after years of going down the wrong path, I am finally building the life that I want. I am learning to believe in myself, to fight for what I believe in, to go after what I want and not to be afraid of failure. I have spent my whole life learning how to use my voice, but it wasn’t until recently that I gained the courage to speak up for what I believe in.
Now, I am learning how to be a happier, healthier version of myself, and I would like to share my knowledge and experience with you!
This blog is about rebelling against fear, insecurities, self-doubt and every voice that ever said ‘You can’t!’. It’s is about unleashing your voice to fight for what you believe in, for what you want and for who you are. Rather than being afraid of being different, it’s about being afraid of being the same as everyone else. It’s about not being afraid to give yourself everything you’ve ever wanted.
This blog is about learning not to fear mistakes, but finding the courage to learn from them. It’s about embracing who you truly are. It’s about chasing after your dreams, fighting for what you truly want, by losing your fear of failing and replacing it by a fear of not trying at all.
‘The Beautiful Thing About Fear Is,
When You Run To It, It Usually Runs Away.’
– Robin Sharma
It’s about starting over and building the future your heart is crying out for. It’s about not being afraid of change, but about creating a life that feels good in the inside as much as it does on the outside. In order to get something you’ve never had, you need to do something you’ve never done.
This blog is about learning to trust in yourself. It’s about transforming fear into fighting spirit. It’s about being strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you may need help and brave enough to ask for it. It’s about helping you to find the courage to let go of that which you cannot change.
The worst mistake anyone can make is being afraid to make one. You only really fail when you stop trying. You have only one life… You should be running towards your dreams as though you are on fire.

The truth is that fear is not real. Fear is merely the product of our thoughts, like scary stories we tell ourselves. Fear is something we learn. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of getting hurt, fear of being alone, fear of being worthless and flawed, fear of being inadequate… there is so much to be afraid of, but our fears only end up becoming our limits. The things we want most are usually on the other side of fear.
But fear is a choice. You let your fear decide your fate.

I am done not living my dreams because I’m busy living my fears. I am done letting my fear of what could happen actually end up making nothing happen. I am done listening to everything and everyone that tells me why I can’t or shouldn’t. I am done not chasing my dreams because others don’t have the courage to chase theirs. I am done letting my fear of failure result in actual failure. I will never again give up before I’ve even started.
Fear is nothing more than a prison, but today I am free… what about you?
