I don’t get scared easily.
To be honest, I’ve never struggled much with fear.
But right now? I’m terrified.
An opportunity lays before me that I want to take. So much.
But I also want to run the opposite direction. R-u-n.
All of a sudden these ugly visitors rise to the surface: fear of failure, fear of inadequacy, fear of being out of my depth, fear of rejection, fear of blowing it.
I “make my living” helping people to understand how awesome they are, but now all of a sudden I’m cowering.
I need to take some of my advice:
Face your fears.
Take a risk.
Be willing to fail.
Don’t over think things.
Let go of perfectionism.
Believe in yourself.
An opportunity is just that – an opportunity. It’s up to me whether I embrace it or blow it off.
I’m gonna choose to embrace it, perhaps with a little trembling… but embrace it nonetheless.
Q for you: When’s the last time you faced one of your fears?
