Over the summer, I shared a story about when I let fear get in my way; when I let it dictate my actions and potentially sacrifice the relationship with one of my favorite companies. To this day I think about that day, that event and that brand and wonder if I’m over-thinking, but ultimately how to repair that relationship.
Anyway, this isn’t about that day; it’s about the fear.
And it’s not even about the fear of that day; it’s about the fear I’m facing now and working to overcome these fears so I can make things happen and really live my life.
So what fears am I facing?
-I’m afraid of not passing my NASM CPT test
-I’m afraid of the GRE and potential for grad school
-I’m afraid of success and failure
-I’m afraid of being alone and not getting my fairy-tale
-I’m afraid of what’s next but also of getting stuck
-I’m afraid to make my next move and not moving
-I’m afraid of letting someone down
-I’m afraid of talking too much and not saying enough
Now it’s time to get real
It’s time to buckle down, make a plan, accept what challenges present themselves, appreciate what is given to me, remember that I already made my dreams come true (manage bands) and this is my new dream, let go of what’s holding me back, and embrace what’s to come.
Why let fear get in the way?
Now tell me, when was the last time you overcame you fears (whether big or small)? How did you do it?
