Stare your fears in the face!

Ever been someone to allow fear to stop you from trying? Did you give up on something because you had the fear stare right back at you in the face? Why is it that fear is stronger at times than desire, goals, dreams? Likely because fear can create control in your life. Afterall, if you let your fears control you, it makes things easier – doesn’t it? Say for example you have fear of failure. If you are afraid to fail and you decide that fear is stronger than your desire to succeed…fear has won! It has controlled you. Hasn’t it?
So many people make excuses why they can’t or will not do something. This is a form of control…and although you may be reading this saying, no it isn’t control, it is because I truly fear failing…take a deep breath and ask how your fears have helped you achieve success in the past.
Don’t let fear stop you from living your life as you deserve to. Stop and STARE your FEARS right in the FACE! Overcome them…how? Push ahead, know that in order to grow and change and reach your desired goals, you MUST overcome some of your fears! You MUST in most cases get out of that COMFORT ZONE! In order to really live your life to the fullest, live your dreams – you have to be willing to overcome the things that are stopping you from personal growth.
Do yourself a favour…make a list of the things that you feel are stopping you right now in your life. Then make a very honest attempt to decide how you are going to take the steps needed to push forward and breakthrough to your own success. The life of your dreams is waiting…you are in the driver’s seat…don’t let fear take over the steering wheel!
