Let’s talk about FEAR.
Fear is sneaky.
It comes up at just the right moment, when you are feeling strong, confident and ready to do something big.
Fear, masked under the pretense of caring about your best interest, mutters:
“Are you sure you can do this?”,
“You’re not experienced/educated/talented enough to.”
“There’s no way you can start a family/quit your job/follow your heart”.
Fear creeps in a little at a time and before you know it, has made itself at home in your mind and heart with a blanket, warm cup of coffee, binging on Netflix.
Why do we welcome this rude little self-serving house guest? Fear may be detrimental to our dreams but at least we know what to expect. We believe it keeps us safe and free from disappointment and embarrassment but really it just handcuffs us from living our life.
How do you welcome fear and self-doubt into your life ?
Is it constant comparison to others online? LOG OUT.
Is it a friend, spouse, coworker family member whose words make you self-doubt/question your dreams. IGNORE THEM.
Or is it you ? Self-sabotaging, making excuses, ignoring what you know you need to do. STOP IT.
The actions that move us further along in our journey requires nothing more than stopping the things that are holding us back.
So let’s turn up the heat, clear out the fridge and kick fear and self-doubt out of our home.
