“You are free to let go”

If Karl Melvin could offer his 18-year-old self one piece of advice this morning, he would tell him don’t be afraid to let go of your mistakes.

Even the most successful people have made mistakes along the way and had their fair share of challenges, so don’t let your mistakes hold you back from beocming the person you want to become.

He would also tell his younger self to let go of fear. Fear is a natural feeling but it is the very thing holding you back from achieving your goals.

Don’t sit around worrying about the things that might or might not happen because if you do, you will talk yourself out of it. Action cures Fear!

The final thing he would say is to let go of those relationships that don’t serve you anymore. Don’t let small minded people hold you back. Surround yourself with people who motivate you and want to help you to success.

What advice would you share with your 18-year-old self?
