Is fear causing you to quit before you even get started?
The world is filled with frightening things:
- Raw onions
- Rush hour traffic
- Going to the dentist
- Filing your taxes
- Jalapeno beer
- Working your entire life at a job you hate
- Monsters hiding in your closet or under your bed.
But nothing is scarier than giving up before you achieve your goal. That will scare the crap out of you!
Fear will always be in your life. All too often, we let fear control us. When in reality, we should be the one controlling it.
More often than not, fear is talked about in a negative way, but it can also be used to your advantage to push you towards your goal.
For years I had let fear sit in the driver’s seat. It totally controled the direction of my life.
I wanted to be cruising through life in a sports car. Turning onto the interstate speeding along at 75 mph.
But since fear had it’s slimy hands on the wheel, I was sputtering along a bumpy dirt road in a rusted out jalopy.
For years, I had given up on my goal of starting this blog. I had tons of excuses. It was too hard, it was too scary, I didn’t have enough time.
Then one day I finally realized that my life would be a whole lot scarier if I didn’t achieve my goal.
I was determined to release fear’s grip on my steering wheel. I threw it into the trunk and jumped into the driver’s seat.
I decided to no longer let fear control me. I was going to control it and use it to my advantage.
I made a list of all the scary things that would happen in my life if I continued to give up on my goal:
- Working the rest of my life at a job I hated.
- Knowing that I let down all of the people that I could help. People that needed to hear what I had to share.
- Experiencing the heavy weight of regret as I lay on my deathbed.
- Being a bad example for my son. Teaching him that it’s okay to give up.(That one really hurt)
- Knowing that I let my family down.
- And most important of all, knowing that I wasted my life opportunity by not sharing my skills and knowledge with the world.
When you look at things this way, it’s a whole lot scarier to not achieve your goal than it is to try something new. Suddenly the unknown territory that you have to emerge yourself in seems much easier to handle than it did before.
It’s your turn, make a list of all the things that are much scarier than going after your goals and dreams. Once you do this, you’ll welcome the path to goal achievement with open arms.
It’s time to start putting fear to work for you.
