What if I started doing the things I’ve been afraid to do?

What if I started doing the things I’ve been afraid to do? Fear holds us back. We make our fears real by creating an ending that hasn’t happened. When we buy into our false fears we become paralyzed to act. It’s not so much as facing a fear as it is in facing ourselves. Look in the mirror and give the man or woman who is looking back at you permission to act. When we act against our fears, we become stronger and more confident. It’s no big deal if one fails, failure is only fatal when we quit trying. Try and try again.

    1. Hi Terveen, So often our biggest fears are centered in how we believe other people will respond to us. When we allow our actions to be governed by another’s perception of what we do, we sacrifice our freedom. It’s one of things I liked about university work. When I sent my articles in for publication, they were blind reviewed. No one knew who I was. The reviewers weren’t always kind, but their comments helped me to learn and grow in my profession. Have a great day. Keep the shine polished. Ray
