For many people, fear holds us back from having the lives we truly desire, blocks us from daring to dream and actually step out into the future we know we deserve.
Yet, fear is real.
It grips up and controls us from moving forward.
It tells us stories that are not true about ourselves and becomes so loud that we start to make the lies our truths. From there, we begin to disbelieve in our unique abilities and even shut them down as we feel we may never measure up.
WHAT IS FEAR ANYWAY?
The definition of fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or a threat.
The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” – Nelson Mandela
To create the life of your dreams, many coaches will tell you to:
· Think positively
· Use affirmations
· Use the Law of Attraction
· Write out your sparkly new vision in a journal
· Set up a vision board
All of this sounds good, yet I’m afraid most of it is an exercise in futility, unless you complete one very important step prior to all of the above.
YOU MUST DEAL WITH YOUR FEARS!
We live in a world driven by fear. You and I were born into it and every day, we are shown images and words that support the belief of “I am not safe and I am not enough”.
