What holds you back from doing something you have always wanted to do? It’s your fear. And that fear is yours, not anyone else’s.
Why and how does fear holds us back from achieving the results we want? We all fear something, someone, and it holds us back from achieving what we want in life.
Some of us are fear failure, so we decide to stop before we even start. Other fear judgment or failure to be accepted, so they choose to be anti-social and never discover how amazing friendships and love can be. Then there are some who claim that they are fearless but they rarely go beyond their comfort zones to reach their goals.
We need to take on the mentality of our children again. Think about when you were a child….you were not afraid of anything! If you were to walk in my son’s 4th grade classroom and ask what they wanted to be when they grew up, you would hear answers like “Space Cowboy” and “President of the universe”, because children believe they can do anything. To move past this, we have to start by making the choice that we will no longer be afraid. And the best way to do that is through ACTION. Work on your fears every day, in the words of my favorite shoes….JUST DO IT! I guarantee it will get easier and become FUN!
Let me ask you a quick question, “How many times do you ever think of doing something that is really important to you, getting excited about it and then you hold yourself back?”
