rHave you ever felt that you weren't good enough? Did you feel like that dream wasn't attainable? Have you ever felt like that business you want to start would fail? It's these thoughts that keep us stagnant in our current conditions. I have come to realize that one of the roots of these thoughts is fear. Fear is a powerful tool that paralyzes a person. In its most raw form fear is a defense mechanism our body uses to protect us from impending harm. Unfortunately, our mind doesn't distinguish between fear for physical protection and a psychological fear that is keeping us from making moves into the unknown. It's in those moments that we must exert power over our minds and take one step forward. After you make that initial step and your mind sees that you are safe, each subsequent step will be easier and easier. Let me give you an example. I have been in theater since Kindergarten and I love being up on that stage. However, without fail, before every performance I would be gripped with fear because I was scared of what could happen or what I could do wrong during the show. However, after I got my first line out, all fear would dissipate and I could easily get through my performance.
Remember, fear is not necessarily your enemy. Fear is there to tell you this is something that is new, use caution. Fear is there to tell you that this may be bigger than anything you have done before, proceed with care. However, we take these warnings as stop signs when really they are just yield signs. I can honestly say that when I have moved past fear I have experienced such blessings. Not every venture ends in success, but every venture has ended in life lessons that brought me closer to success. We can no longer allow fear to keep us from fulfilling our destiny. Our purpose in this life is greater than what we can comprehend. Yes, that's scary. However, when we start operating in that purpose, there is such peace and freedom.
Many of us are sitting on million dollar businesses. You may have the cure to cancer. You may have a message that will save the life of a person contemplating suicide. The time of holding back because of fear has passed. There is too much riding on it. Too many people are waiting for you to release your gifts. Just take that first step. Then take another. Then another. Soon you will be flowing through destiny like its nothing. I encourage you all to step pass your fear. There is so much waiting for you on the other side. There are no failures, just lessons, so what are you waiting for?
