It’s a four letter word that packs a lot of punch. For some people fear forms in the way of a masked clown, a spider, or a dark room. For others, fear comes from change, risk taking, and the unknown. For me, fear formed itself in this blog. The thought of openly expressing myself on the internet for the world to see was frightening. I had quit my job and started my own business; yet the thought of starting a blog was crippling. The thoughts like “Who cares what I have to say?”, “I”m not interesting”, and “My life isn’t interesting enough” dictated my dreams. Then one day I had had enough. I decided fear was no longer going to dictate my life. Who cares if the only person who read this blog was my mom? I wanted this, and I was going to go after what I wanted.
So my question for you is: “If you could eliminate fear from your life, what would you do with it?”
If you’re miserable at your job, quit. If you’re not happy where you live, move. If your relationship is no longer serving you, then move on from it. Be assertive with your life. Whether it’s that promotion, that dream job, or that cute guy/girl at the coffee shop; go after what you want! Because at the end of the day, I’m sure you won’t lay your head down at night and think, “I’m so happy fear has kept me here.”
And when you can feel fear sneaking in, always remember:
“the world is an endless possibility when it isn’t fueled by fear!”
