Fear does NOT want you to read this … and certainly not to the end!
That’s because I’m going to share it’s best kept SECRET, so that the next time fear shows itself and threatens to de-rail your dreams, you will be prepared for it’s savvy powers of persuasion.
Fear is TOO OFTEN victorious.
Fear too often “wins” because many people would sooner share their worst fear with the mailman before they share what they dream of! Dreams are often thought to be private, sometimes even under lock and key … and because of THIS, showing up at the starting line can sometimes feel like the riskiest part. And for this reason alone, far too many don’t even begin!
Oooo, I know…. Fear sure knows how to get to YOU! Often, all it takes is a few words and you surrender:
“Oh, be realistic!”
“You’ll never succeed.”
“Be reasonable … I mean, really.”
“Don’t set your sights too high.”
“Who do you think you ARE?”
“Why rock the boat?”
“Imagine what so-and-so will say…”
“Oh, things are good enough.”
“You don’t have enough (fill in the blank) for that.”
And the list goes on…
Just like that, any ONE of those statements can send you right back to your repetitive reality, to living your ‘default life’ (a.k.a. what’s familiar). No matter how miserable you may be … hey, at least you know what to expect, right?
Wrong. Not okay. This logic and belief in limitation really and truly makes my heart hurt.
Because, I know there’s another way, and I know there’s a wiser, braver, bolder part of YOU – the part of you that, even in spite of fear, believes in possibility despite “the odds” and believes in the inherent wisdom of your heart. Even if only on occasion. You get glimpses of a higher truth – which more than likely then kicks your fears back into overdrive … and round and round it goes!
It’s crazy-making! And fear can be SO convincing – believe me, I know!
Because, you see …
… THAT’S its genius! It knows exactly what will leave you feeling defenseless. It knows exactly where your weak spots are (because fear IS your weak spot) and it is MASTERFUL at scaring you right back into your “safe zone” of “good enough” – or worse – what I call “comfortable misery.”
AND – it has stamina!
For example, if, by chance, one of those first statements don’t do the trick to have you resigned to “reality”, Fear has a Plan B waiting in the wings: It’ll serve up an abundance of so-called “evidence.”
You know what I mean … a history lesson, a probability quiz, reminders about the expectations of others and the “rules” of social norms that you “should” follow … It’ll even dredge up that story about that-time-when-you-did-that-thing (and then felt like a fool or a failure)… and why you should do everything in your power to avoid risking something like that happening again!
Oh yes, fear can have you paralyzed in no time. It can EVEN trick you into thinking it’s on your SIDE! That is, if you’re not prepared…
That’s why it’s absolutely critical to remember: Just ‘cuz it’s persuasive and persistent, doesn’t mean it’s True!
Because the Truth with a capital “T” is that possibility ABOUNDS and your dreams are simply waiting for YOU to engage … ya know, instead of running away or running for a broom to sweep it back under the rug!
See, what’s *so* critical to understand is that your dream BECOMES possible the moment you declare it to be! You got that? Worth repeating: What’s so critical and what I really want you to “get” is that your dreams become possible for you the moment you DECLARE that that they are! (Yes, you really ARE that powerful.)
Have YOU mistakenly filed your dreams under “impossible”? (It’s okay. You can re-file them.)
In the face of fear, it can be *so* easy to feel resigned and hopeless about your dreams. It’s easy to feel scattered and overwhelmed, or “too busy” to STOP and take an honest inventory of your precious life passing you by…
YET – the sooner you bravely do so, and set yourself up with the right support, the sooner you’ll LIVE them. It’s that simple really.
Here’s what fear WON’T tell you…
–> What fear won’t tell you, and what it wants more than anything to KEEP you from seeing … is the cost of NOT going for it.
–> What’s the price you’re paying by NOT investing in your dream(s)?
–> How is it impacting you to put off the fulfillment of your heart’s deepest desires?
–> What is the cost – and the RISK – of always wondering?
–> What’s the cost – and the RISK – of waiting … another 6 months? Year? Another 5 years? 10 years?
Can you afford THAT?!? Fear fears THIS question most of all … because it knows the answer is NO.
No matter how big, small, silly or vague you may think your dream is, it is time for YOU to start right now, from exactly where you ARE, to step up, believe in possibility, acknowledge your heart’s wisdom, celebrate the excitement of the journey ahead, and STOP wondering and waiting for “someday”.
