BEFRIENDING YOUR FEAR

Sharing is caring!

Have you decided for your dream?

When we decide for a dream, there’s a part of us that feels like this… 

“Yesss! Bring it on!”

And there’s another part of us that feels like “Whaaat!?”

A little voice will say…

“How are you going to do that?

You’ve never done that before!”

“Who do you think you are?  

You don’t have what it takes.” 

THAT’S THE VOICE OF FEAR

It’s the primitive part of your brain that wants to stick to the status quo.  

OFTEN FEAR WILL DISGUISE ITSELF AS PRACTICALITY

Fear won’t say, “I’m here to kill your dreams.”  It’s too smart for that. It will say…

  • “I’m here to keep you safe. 
  • I’m here to make sure you never have to experience that level of pain again. 
  • I’m here to make sure you don’t get embarrassed.” 

It’s the voice that says… 

  • “Now is not a good time, wait until later.” 
  • “You don’t have the money for that. That’s irresponsible.” 
  • “You don’t have the experience or credentials. 
  • “You’re too old anyway.”

And it’s the part of you that asks, “What if you fail?”

SO WHAT IF YOU FAIL? 

Have you ever had a failure in life? 

We all have.

When we were babies, we all started out as non-walkers. As a non-walker, you got up and then you fell down. But, what did you do next? You got up and tried again and you fell down. You kept getting up and falling down. Never once did you think to yourself, “Well that’s it. I guess I’m just not meant to be a walker.” No, you got up and kept going and finally you became a walker. 

Something happens as we become adults. We stop giving ourselves permission to fall down. If we fall down in business we say, “I guess I’m just not meant to be a business owner.” If a relationship fails we might say, “I guess I’m just not cut out for relationships.” 

WE MUST BEFRIEND OUR FEAR AND GIVE OURSELVES PERMISSION TO FAIL IN ORDER TO SUCCEED.   

Many super successful people had many failures when they started out. 

  1. TV star, Oprah Winfrey, was fired by television executives and told that she was not fit for TV. But she got up and kept going.
  1. Academy Award Winning Movie Director, Steven Spielberg, was rejected by the USC Film School THREE times, but he got up and kept going.
  1. Disney Founder, Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper for “lacking imagination, and having no original ideas.”  

What if Walt Disney had succumbed to that “failure”? What if he had bought into the idea that he lacked imagination and had no original ideas?  We would not be blessed with all those amazing Disney films and the magic of his amusement parks.

FEAR AND FAILURE ARE PREREQUISITES FOR ACHIEVING GREAT DREAMS.

So when fear arises, what can you do? Because it’s not an if — it’s a when.  It’s coming.

THE KEY: RECONNECT TO YOUR DREAM

Here’s what you do when fear arises — here’s what great Dream Builders do:

  1. You reconnect to your dream
  2. Then ask yourself. “What is one action I can take that will move me in the direction of my dream?” 
  3. Then you BOLDLY take that action. 

The clearer you are about your dream, the more access you have to the power to make it real and that’s why we do the Time Machine Process.

Take a look at the dream you have written down and ask yourself, “What is one action step I can take that will move me in the direction of my dream? There absolutely IS some action that you can take to start moving toward the life you would love.  What is that action step for you?  WRITE DOWN AT LEAST ONE ACTION STEP NOW.  

EVERYDAY, CHOOSE ONE ACTION STEP AND SCHEDULE IT ON YOUR CALENDAR FOR THAT DAY.

Progress is more important than perfection. Taking even the smallest step toward your dream every day will make a huge difference. Like Judy going to look for that house.
