“What if I fall? Oh, but my darling . . . what if you fly?”
As an entrepreneur, a creative, or anyone passionate about the work they do, there is just never a time when we aren’t scared! Fear reminds you that what you do matters! It’s powerful. It’s big. If you’re waiting for fear to go away, it won’t. If you’re thinking that fear means you shouldn’t do it . . . you’re wrong! Let fear guide you and do your thing scared. Do it afraid. Everything we do, the stuff that matters, do it scared.
I used to think fear of change, fear of failure, fear of embarrassment was something to run from, yet as an entrepreneur I’ve learned that fear is something to run into. My biggest growth times have come through my biggest fears and overcoming doubt, insecurities, and challenges.
Building the life we want isn’t easy. The path isn’t always clear, too, and that’s where the courage comes in. The courage to walk a path with no certainty yet absolute determination to recognize that everyone who was ever somebody started out as a nobody. They, too, started out afraid. Scared. Fearful.
Fear doesn’t have to paralyze you! Use the fear as your radar for the things you must do!
- What is that one thing that you can accomplish today that will make everything else fall into place?
- What is that one thing you should be doing to move your life and your business forward?
- What is that one thing you are afraid of?!
The thing, the thing we want most is often the thing we’re most afraid of! AND it’s also that one thing that we put off the most!
Life seems to be a series of little leaps of faith. I want you to jump without all the answers. Trust yourself in the process, and just enjoy where it takes you! Don’t let fears keep you from your dreams. Do the one thing!
