Hello SOTGC community,
I can still hear it being whispered in my mind as a youngster …
Fear = bad
Fear = avoid
Fear = run away
The avoidance of fear is what often keeps us from pursuing the things that scare us.
Not the “creepy guy following you down an alley” type of scared.
The type of scared that creates a tornado in your belly and makes you lose your breath thinking about the possibility of you actually doing something BIG, something completely DIFFERENT, and something far BEYOND your current reality.
It’s human nature to crave comfort, and it will shape our lives if we don’t heighten our awareness of what fear is really telling us, if we don’t let ourselves feel the discomfort to process it, and if we don’t listen to the challenge to redefine fear.
We shy away from fear because it’s uncomfortable. To make an impact, to make the shift your heart is calling you to make, to take the risk that whispers to your soul daily, we must learn to step into the fear and use it as fuel.
We need to give fear an empowered meaning …
Fear = key to success
Fear = growth
Fear = your next greatest chapter
What role has fear played in your life? How would you redefine fear?
