“I can not do that right now! That’s so wildly scary. No, no way.”
“Now, don’t get me wrong. I really wanna do that thing, but I know I’ll perform so much better without my fears.
I’m gonna take my time and wait till my fears are gone.
And till I’m feeling really really confident.”
Sometimes we really wanna do something we’ve never done before.
Something that excites us.
Something that scares us at the same time.
We love the excitement.
We hate the fear.
So much that we just stop in our tracks.
And then that something we really wanna do, becomes something we’ll do.
When our fears are gone.
And we are just left with the excitement.
That’s when we’ll do that thing.
That’s when we’ll step up and step out.
That’s when we’ll shine.
But the thing is that Fear seems to like it here.
Fear doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to go.
It’s just us feeling uncomfortable.
Hoping to get rid of that Fear.
But ditching our dreams instead.
Because we believe the myth to be true.
That we can only do something after we’ve gotten rid of the fear.
That we can only give it our all when we are fear free.
That we can only shine when we feel confident and fearless.
What we tend to forget is that we can do that thing thanks to the fear.
When we listen to the risks Fear is pointing out.
And separate out the drama from its valid concerns.
That’s when we start to fear less.
That’s when we get to improve our plan with its valuable remarks.
That’s when we get to make our idea stronger.
What we tend to forget is that we can do that thing with the fear.
Knowing we make the final call, not Fear.
Accepting we have no crystal ball.
Trusting that we will handle whatever comes up.
Proving to ourselves that we’ve got what it takes.
By giving it our all.
Thanks to the fear.
With the fear.
Knowing it’s about fear less.
Not fear free.
What dream are you giving up on because you believe you need to be fear free before you can go ahead?
“Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing.”
