No wonder Bethany Mota‘s fans are called Motavators!
The social star and new Girls’ Life cover girl is always trying to motivate her fans to do something that scares them.
“Most of my fears are just keeping me from being my true self. So I ask myself, ‘What do you really want? What do you want to achieve? What fears are keeping you from that and how can you conquer them?’” she explains in her cover story.
Bethany adds, “here are little things that scare us every day, and really keep us from doing what we want to do. What I’ve found is that when I face one fear, I get into the habit of doing things that scare me…and I get a little closer to the person I want to be.”
So, what other advice does she have for others who are afraid to express themselves?
“You have to go with what you enjoy, regardless of what others around you think you should be doing,” Bethany says. “I know people who have gotten into YouTube and then stopped because they have friends who thought it was weird.”
“Don’t be afraid to be different. It’s safer to do what everyone else is doing, but it pays off way more to be yourself.”
