I recently joined an event in my hometown, which was focused on new technologies. I had the opportunity to give a small talk and I took it. First I was a bit scared, “What will the people think?", “Do I have enough knowledge to give a talk?", “I can't speak good enough…". But I also thought “You have to leave your comfort zone to grow.” And that's what I did. I left my comfort zone to grow.
I always didn't like to hear my own voice, because I thought it sounds strange. So always procrastinated starting a podcast. I finally overcame my fear. And it actually feels good. I always had that idea in my mind of starting a podcast, I also started recording one once, but I screw it. I didn't like my voice. But this time, I just tried it again and after hearing the voice some time, I just thought, why care about other's opinions, just do it.
