There are many opinions about how this is actually done, none of which I want to focus on today. There will always be critics and skeptics alike. Sometimes when something is too threatening to be believed, it’s easier to try and discredit it or pretend like it’s not real.
This is the BIG QUESTION I want to ask you today…
Are you really ready to move through FEAR so that you can feel the exhilaration of Victory?
I know many of you have had the experience of wanting more for your life. Knowing that you should do more, yet you are still stuck in the same place because there is an old familiar “script” or a “movie” playing in your head telling you or showing you why you can’t move forward.
Being stuck is a very sad and frustrating place to be. The good news is–there is a way out. You can get out and start to experience the life you know you are here to live. How? The answer is simple! Notice I said “Simple” not easy. If it was easy so many more people would be living the life of their dreams.
Do want really want to feel the thrill of victory? Are you ready to get on the other side of stuck? Let’s consider these few simple steps to get you moving through fear so you can experience the exhilaration of true victory.
- Acknowledge that you are afraid. Be willing to look at the fear for what it is worth and then ask yourself, What’s the worse thing that could happen? When you answer that, ask yourself, what is worse than that? And continue asking yourself that until you have honestly looked at the absolute worst that could happen to you if you move forward, take the chance, start the business, leave the familiar, etc.
- Believe in yourself and your dream. You are pure potential! You would not have the desires you have if you were not already capable of achieving them. You are worthy to BE, DO, AND HAVE everything God says you can BE, DO, OR HAVE. You are smarter than you think, braver than you think, and more deserving than you think.
- Challenge Yourself. Without a challenge there can be no increase, growth, or expansion. Challenges are necessary. Each time you accept a challenge you change who you are as a person. Each time you accept a challenge there is an exhilaration that you can’t get any other way except you go through and come out on victory’s side.
I downloaded this video and I watch it at least once a day to remind myself that you must accept the challenges in order to grow, expand and make the impact you are here to make. It’s high time to take FEAR on– head on… It’s o.k. to feel fear, it is not o.k. to become paralyzed by it. As Tony Robbins shouted to everyone taking the Fire Walk… MAKE YOUR MOVE!!!
