Johannesburg - TV personality Hulisani Ravele has, like all of us, had to overcome many fears in her life. So she decided to share her advice for when those little demons of doubt and fear come knocking.

"So often we stop ourselves from going on new quests and going for opportunities we think we will never get because we're afraid. We're afraid of being rejected, laughed at, ridiculed, embarrassed, failing. And look, those are some genuine fears to have. They exist to keep us stagnant, in "our place", behind the door, questioning, doubting, moving backwards, or going nowhere at all. These fears also exist to be conquered," she writes.

"You, you who try, you who take a chance, you who accept the possibility and the reality of a 'no' but still push ahead, we need more of you," she added.

Hulisani, who has been working on a return to TV through her own talk show (more on that HERE) revealed that she has been working on some stuff that she hopes will work out.

"I just took a chance on something. It may work out, it may not but I took the chance," she told her fans in the post. 

Read below for the full speech from Oprah, uh, we mean Hulisani, and then tell us you aren't inspired to conquer the world!

Thanks, Hulisani! Now we finally have the courage to ask Minnie Dlamini out...

I just took a chance on something. It may work out, it may not but I took the chance. So often we stop ourselves from going on new quests and going for opportunities we think we will never get because we're afraid. We're afraid of being rejected, laughed at, ridiculed, embarrassed, failing. And look, those are some genuine fears to have. They exist to keep us stagnant, in "our place", behind the door, questioning, doubting, moving backwards, or going nowhere at all. These fears also exist to be conquered. To be told that I see you, I feel you, I know you, but I will push ahead any way. To be told you scare me, you taunt me, you make me doubt myself, but I will push ahead any way. You, you who try, you who take a chance, you who accept the possibility and the reality of a 'no' but still push ahead, we need more of you. Look Fear, I see you, I just feel you less. I don't know. Call me crazy, call me confident, or maybe, just call me Fearless. - Hulisani Ravele #TodayITookAChance #IPutMyselfOutThere #WhatIsMeantToBeWillBe
