We’re all afraid. Let’s just get that out of the way. From moms to CEOs, we’re all wondering:
“Did I do it right?”
“Will they like me?”
“Am I enough?”
“What will happen if this doesn’t work?”
“What if I fail?”
To answer your questions:
“Did I do it right?” Probably. There’s usually more than one way to do something, and however you thought to do it is great.
“Will they like me?” Maybe. Maybe not. Who cares? Do you like you?
“Am I enough?” Yes, you are more than enough. When you finally believe it, your world will change.
“What will happen if this doesn’t work?” I don’t know, but chances are the world won’t end, and you’ll be just fine.
“What if I fail?” Then try, try again. At least you’re out there trying. Your failures are a sure sign that you’re on the path to success.
The journey to your dreams is filled with many things- roadblocks; long days and late nights; trial and error; the critics (as we discussed last week).
Your dreams don’t need your fear.
They need your rock solid belief in yourself.
They need your willingness to persevere despite all odds.
Developing that unshakeable inner strength results from aligning with your purpose; not the fear. Your dreams need that in order to come to fruition.
The more closely you align yourself with your purpose, or the “why” behind the dream, the more you are able to put fear into perspective.
When your purpose or “why” becomes stronger than the fear, it will inspire you to continue even when the odds are against you, including any form of fear that could derail your dream.
Inspired action builds confidence.
Today acknowledge the presence of any fear associated with your dream and release it.
Breathe in confidence. Breathe out fear.
Acknowledge that fear does not serve you. Choose to release it. Connect with the burning desire that fuels you. Tell yourself that you believe in your ability to manifest your dreams. Feed the dream; not the fear.
You can do it!
