In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to enter and complete the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry. She registered under the gender-neutral name of “K.V. Switzer”. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” however, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire Marathon. These photographs taken of the incident made world headlines.
1. Remind yourself that feel scared is very normal! Peace and bravery exist alongside fear. So don’t be afraid of your feelings of fear.
2. Make the decision to act despite your feelings. Don’t allow them to control you, or hold you back in life.
3. Accept your limitations; they are areas of growth. You’ll get there step by step. So be patient while you change.
4. Set aside the opinions and the judgments of others. Go after what you want, and who you want to be in life.
5. Learn all you can about the scary situation. That will help you to prepare, and develop to skills you’ll need.
6. Remind yourself of the all times when you’ve stepped out in the past, and have taken a real risk – and that paid off in the end. Allow that to inspire you, and to reinforce your courage.
7. It’s ok to ask for help, and support, from other people. So ask for help if you needed; we all need encouragement.
