To name your fears is to destroy them. Are you feeling overwhelmed, in a hurry and stressed as you read this right now? Hello. Welcome to a little mental break. Imagine I’m sitting right in front of you, looking you in the eyes… take a deep breath : ) I have an important question for you today that will hopefully help you feel much better and take some of the weight off your shoulders. Ready? What’s the one thing you have put off doing this week out of fear? A powerful truth: acting on your fear will give you wings. Like the Red Bull kind of wings: energy, freedom, focus, clarity, drive and powerful momentum! When we break through and DO that thing that has been nagging at us, keeping us up at night, waiting for us to take action on it – no matter how big or seemingly small – life changes.
Your challenge for today is simple but profound: write one thing you’ve been putting off doing – whether business or personal – out of fear. I encourage you to comment here with your fear for accountability and you just might inspire someone else! I’ll comment with my fear too and then let you know about my progress later. The most important part of this challenge is to write down your honest fear. Be real. Write it out. Let that fear wash over you. Feel it. Fear won’t kill you, OK? It’s just fear, not lava. It’s there to teach you and you decide what to do with it. You have the reins.
Write down what you’ve been putting off out of fear, then, write three tiny baby mini action steps. Then… do them. If you want change, choose it. Act, make the call, love, dive in, forgive, give it all. Make a decision. Life is too short. Maybe it’s a phone call you need to make, an email you need to send, a conversation you need to start – whatever it is… lean into it. I worked hard to face a lot of fear this week. Honestly, I had so much fear in writing every single one of these steps! Thanks to your encouragement – and your incredible progress every day – I prayed a LOT and I put one foot in front of the other to make it happen. And I’m not about to stop! Life is too short not to realize your full potential by facing your fear head on.
Fill in this sentence right now:
My life is too short to/not to _________.
Comment with your answer below for accountability and to be entered to win a one-on-one session with me or prints from my new shop that will launch soon! There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear… – 1 John 4:18 Act on your fear. Tiny action. Big results. Dive in!
