One of the first things that I encounter when working with my clients, whether it’s a business client or a client that I am working with regarding life issues, is the ever present element of fear. Often times people don’t even understand the depths of how fear is showing up for them in their lives. They don’t necessarily attribute a particular behavior to fear, but when I start to pull back the layers looking for the actual culprit, most often the center of it is fear.
Fear is the greatest thief of many peoples’ otherwise amazing successes. I believe that our greatest blessings are found on the other side of our greatest fears. But you would have to be willing to do the work to get to the other side of it. That is among some of the most challenging work humans have to do here, because very few people show up ready and prepared to tackle fear head on.
The fear can be associated with what others may think about them. It may be connected to them not believing in themselves. It could be tied to their fear of failing, but fear is usually the source.
Imagine what you could be and what you could do if you had no fear. Look at the different places and seasons in your life where perhaps you wanted one result, but ended up with something else. Did you end up with the result you had because of fear?
Has fear prevented you from trying a new career? Did it prevent you from taking the plunge to love fully? Did fear prevent you from moving to a place that you’ve always dreamed about? Fear shows up in all places and spaces in our lives.
Do you let fear dictate what you’re going to do, how you’re going to do it and who you choose to do it with? Or do you feel fear and push through it anyway?
Pushing through fear is not the action of most. Most people will feel fear, be paralyzed in it, back away from it and retreat so they ultimately don’t have to deal with it at all.
