Scared is a feeling, it’s a state of mind, it can be something that is uncomfortable, new, uncharted in your life. Have you ever been scared to move forward? Scared to ask? Scared to start? Scared of what others will think? Scared of the unknown or how it will all work?
Well I think at some point we all have feared something but the thing that sets those that are successful from those that aren’t, is scared doesn’t stop them, halt them or even slow them down.
Can you think of a time in your life when you pushed through when you didn’t want to because you were scared or had lingering fear, and all ended up being ok in the end? Maybe life changed for the better in the end?
It could have been something small like asking someone if they look for ways of earning extra money, or if they would be open to learning more about your opportunity. Shoot it could have been a time when you wanted to know where someone got their super cute shoes from and you felt scared to interrupt, or what would they think of you for asking.
I have been so blessed to have quite a bit of success in life! I also have been scared shitless so many times. Scared of what people will think of me, what if they are rude, what if they say no, what if they reject me. Well my friends, I am so far from those thoughts and feelings now because the more you push through the more you over come those thoughts and hurdles the less they show up and the less you allow them to be present thoughts in your life!
Don’t get me wrong as I grow and try new things and push past fear and being scared there are new challenges and new things that come up. The things that caused feeling of “scared” now are things that I can do without even thinking.
Sometimes I feel like being scared or more nervous means that you just want to success and you want to do well. But its not ok when it is debilitating. Don’t allow it to be. With everything I have talked about before you have the choice to let things stop you from moving forward or to do them any ways. ALWAYS CHOOSE DO THEM ANYWAYS. I promise you will move forward and giggle that you were ever nervous or scared in the first place. Usually if you are scared or fearful that’s the direction and the decision you are supposed to lean towards! We all have a purpose and we all know and have what it takes to fulfill that….. if your gut is saying yes but your head is saying no… DO IT!
I have been scared lately wondering if the decisions I was making were right but at the end of the day it doesn’t matter if they are right or not. I have been moving in the direction of my gut and have faith things will work themselves out! It’s not always about knowing and sometimes if you make a decision and feel scared or fearful if it doesn’t work out my guess is you will have a really good story and lesson to talk about afterwards!
Kick yourself and get out of a state of being scared. You can’t live if you are scared, you miss opportunities, relationships and experiences when you are consumed! Make a commitment to yourself today to do you, go with your gut and get away from living in the scared.
