“Always do what you are afraid to do.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I am excited to announce that our eBook and audio program about Overcoming Fear is now available for
This book is free to you after you sign up for my free newsletter at the bottom of this post.
My good friend Lisa H , and myself contributed to this program.
Why just have one take on dealing with fear when you can get the perspective from three totally different people from completely different backgrounds?
Why the topic of fear? That is an easy one. I get contacted several times a week from my readers who have one challenge and one challenge only.
Even though their stories are different they all have the theme of fear behind them.
“I am so miserable in my current situation and I don’t know what to do?”
This is a common problem that I hear. Believe me, I know this feeling and it all comes down to the fear of change.
It’s risky to leave a job, a spouse, a friendship, your home country and so on. But how come some people can move in spite of their fears and others let their fear keep them stuck?
It’s a great question and there are many answers but only one will suffice for now. Motivation and the belief that not taking action will be way more painful than taking action.
I can tell you that the pain you have when you make a major change is only temporary but you will experience perpetual pain until you make the move you need to. Remember, fear is resistance to love.
You have signals in your body through the brain that tells you, “Hey, life is stagnating here, we need to change now!”
What happens though? Do you listen to the message, or do you ignore it until you can’t take it anymore?
The signal is a message from your higher-self and it is telling you to take action, move forward and ultimately trust in the process.
When we talk about facing your fears we are talking about overcoming your fears that will take you to a better place in life. Perhaps you are not cut out to be an employee.
It just doesn’t resonate with your being, but you feel stuck.
You’re not sure what direction to go in.
A great place to start would be reading some books or blogs about freelance work. Next you attend a workshop or webinar on entrepreneurism.
Get yourself moving in the direction that you feel you need to go. Think baby steps and not giant leaps all at once.
When you learn the art of “getting out of your own way” you will be surprised how many doors open for you. When you resist (fear) no doors open and you feel helpless and miserable (no fun).
You need to take the first step, that’s it.
Move forward, learn what you need to and keep going. I know that you want the feeling of certainty before you take action. I got news for you, there is no real certainty in life.
You have to perceive life from a higher perspective and let your love for yourself, and what you want from your life to be the leading force in your life journey.
The biggest struggle you will experience when facing your fears is your ability to tolerate the initial discomfort.
Once you are able to get past that all else becomes almost effortless because you get to see life from the other side of your fear.
