Today I did something that terrifies me like nothing else. It wasn’t the first time either, so I knew exactly what I was getting into, and it made it all the more terrifying. There is something about fear that is crippling, and at the same time, I know when I face my fears, I get the most intense thoughts.
Fear prevents action.
Lack of action = a lack of control.
A lack of control = the inability to determine your destiny.
Therefore, when fear cripples our actions, we are no longer control our own destiny and are as dead leaves blowing in the wind.
The strength from overcoming is always better than the weakness from giving in.
I cannot live my life being terrified of something and I would much rather die trying to overcome such an intense fear, than live knowing it got the best of me.
A love of comfort is the beginning of fear.
This hesitation you are feeling isn’t about money, time or even death. Its about some little switch in your brain that is telling you to be afraid.
I’m really proud of myself because I almost backed out of it and then I stopped and took the time to talk myself through it. I have every intention to rid my system of this fear once and for all, so I would imagine that you will see more specific information on this shortly. I am sure some of you can guess what it is if you know me personally, and no, it isn’t eating mushrooms (that isn’t fear! Its just nastiness!) ☺
I will say this, I have never felt more alive when I was terrified out of my freaking mind and still pulled it off. Dang…that feels good!
