For the most of my life I really feel like I have been fearless. I have always been keen to take on any challenge, not afraid to start something new… but since starting my clothing line A Beautiful Inspiration fear has most definitely been a huge part of my life that I battle with daily. I am all in with this company, and I mean ALL IN! That scares the crap out of me! And can sometimes and has left me paralyzed with fear, unable to take a step forward or step outside of my box.
The problem with allowing fear into your life is it does seriously paralyze you, and when you aren’t making even baby steps to move forward then you are not doing anything. Your goals are still way off in the distance, it’s definitely not a fun place to be in and it is really not good for your health.
So plan, and then plan some more, then take action on those plans. They don’t have to be huge monumental steps but they have to be steps. Each step when you look back will be such a miracle of where you have come from and a bit closer to your goals that aren’t so way off in the distance anymore. So never let fear paralyze you. Never compare your beginning to someone else’s middle. Never allow someone else’s opinion of your life/goals/family hinder you from going for it. If you don’t try you don’t achieve.
I heard once that when you live in gratitude there is no room for fear. Fear isn’t able to come into the picture when you are grateful. It just isn’t possible to do both at the same time. So I challenge you to give this a try and see for yourself.
Go after your dreams and never allow fear one moment to hold you back.
