What are you afraid of today?
As I embark upon my new journey as a business owner, coach and mentor, I regularly come across many fears brewing up inside of me. Some of these I am aware of, but others are quite new.
What will other people think of me? What if my friends laugh at me? What if I miss the security of a day J-O-B? What if I can’t find the time to do what I need to? What if I am not consistent in my daily actions? What if I get bored with it? What if I fail? What if I lose all confidence? What if I can’t learn all the new skills? What if I let people get to know the real me and they don’t like me? Will I be less interesting to people and therefore lose friends?
So this is what I tell myself: You are a unique and wonderful creation so do not be afraid. What does it matter what people think of you? Your real friends wouldn’t laugh at you. Be open to learning and creating new habits. Surround yourself with like-minded people who will encourage and support you. Be true to your passion and create the time to do what you enjoy. Find your inner you and connect each day in silence and stillness.
The real you is You!
Discover your gifts and share and be a blessing to others. The confidence will follow. Spend time working on your ‘new self’ and develop a new mindset. Be grateful for everyday and by being yourself you will cultivate new and affirming friendships.
So you feel the fear, and you do it anyway. Do not be afraid to embrace a new direction in life. Life is too precious and short to be stunted by fear.
