A couple weeks ago we talked about the power of stepping out of our comfort zone. This week we are talking about fear, and what happens within us when we conquer our fears.
What are you afraid to do? If you were to take a few quiet, personal moments to honestly and sincerely evaluate your life, would there be things you haven’t done or shy away from due to a fear of failure, or a fear of the unknown, or because you have an irrational fear of it? It’s probably fair to say that most of us have.
Something powerful within each of us happens when we take a leap forward to conquer a fear that has slowed us or paralyzed us from doing something great or accomplishing a dream, or just simply facing a challenge of any sort. Think of the ear to ear grin on a child’s face as they come out of the water after jumping off the diving board for the first time, or they finally “get it” when learning to ride a bike. The same happens within each of us, our self-confidence soars when we do what we are afraid to do.
What are your fears?
We are all different, and our fears are unique to us. Some of us are plagued by fears each day. Some we are very aware of, and some are more subconscious. Wherever you are in your life, start facing your fears.
OUR POWER CHALLENGE THIS WEEK IS TO CHOOSE ONE THING IN YOUR LIFE THAT YOU’VE ALWAYS FEARED AND DO IT! Write it down, put it in a place where you can see it, and go for it. Allow your self-confidence to soar knowing you did it, you put your best effort forward to overcome, confront or do what you’ve been afraid to do.
This week I overcame a fear of mine. I participated in a triathlon. It was awesome! My confidence has increased and I know now that I can do something I thought I couldn’t do. Not only did I live through it, but I want to do it again! How sad it would have been if I had listened to my fears and never experienced the confidence that came from just doing it!
Conquer on Imprinters! We know you can do it!!!
