Very often we underestimate the influence that fear has on our decision making process. Do we take the new job? Move to the new city? Change careers? Fear has a distinct ability to undermine our goals and can keep us from moving towards what we desire most. We can easily become stuck in a negative feedback loop of “what if this” and “what if that”. This is what I say about FEAR:
Don’t FIGHT it … This will only fuel its fire. Don’t try to FORGET it … It will only work harder to let its presence be know. FEEL the fear … Lean into it and sit with the discomfort. More often than not, once we can do this, we gradually realize that there was nothing to be afraid of. This doesn’t mean that things will always go our way or as planned … This just means we discover that we are strong enough to handle whatever comes our way.
FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY.
