There is something about fear that paralyzes the spirit. It traps you in a web of your own lies about a destiny that is up to you to determine. But you see that is what fear takes away! It takes away choice, it takes away freedom, and it takes away your autonomy in favor of a collective view of who you should be.
Take me for example, I should not be writing this article! No I am serious, my fate was mapped out when I was 4 years old while watching Law and Order I had determined the only path for me was being a Lawyer. While although a prestigious path and really right for some, I spent most of my early 20’s in tormented fear because who I was was not a Lawyer.
I mean for God’s sake, I was singing, writing poetry and most of all inspiring people, Tony Robins style, to do what they were BORN to do! In many instances people just needed a positive word, but what I had to say was powerful enough for a friend of mine to plant a seed. “You should be a life coach” was all it took to start this journey and 2 years later here I am!
But fear would grip me!
The dumbest things would pop into my head throughout this journey! Like literally a battle to the death of a dream. Not sure if you have experienced it before but breaking up with your fear of what could have been, of a life you planed but knew would never make you happy, those are the hardest things to let go of!!
Fear would have you be small and discipline you to take what little you can get! But when you want to live MORE, see the world, know its people, uplift the spirit of the world and live a life of freedom. Well fear has no greater enemy then your true calling. And speeding up the process IS available to all of us. It just depends on whether you are willing to listen to me kick your ass into the direction of your dreams!
We just give fear too much time! I gave fear 3 years of my post college life. I gave it every dream to travel it took away and I gave it every friendship destroyed by it. Don’t give fear your life in exchange for your resentment and sadness! Give your fear your back side and crush at life full force! Like a real “ kiss this and Get OVER IT” mindset that will get you the results that matter! When your 50-something and realize you did everything in your power to have it ALL as oppose to what was I even afraid of!! I mean, face it, right now, what do you wish you had done in your life? Does it really include simmering down and doing less or are you a freedom seeker like me, barely able to wait until your next opportunity to take a plane ANYWHERE!!
Today take your fears put them where the sun don’t shine and do ANYTHING to get your dreams moving!!
Most of all
Its your dream, level up already!
