Are you all in?
|September 26, 2012||Filled under Motivation|
I love this quote by Bill Cosby. I have been thinking a lot lately about commitment, my goals and what is stopping me from reaching my goals. Bottom line? I am the only one standing in my way. It’s not pretty to admit.
Fear is…detrimental to my well-being. Might not be successful? Nope, can’t do it. That person might not like me? Nope, can’t start a conversation with them. Fear has always stood in my way…as long as I can remember. This is not new news to me…but something has clicked inside me rather recently. FEAR IS ALSO MY EXCUSE.
Whoa. I’ve been heading towards this “a-ha” moment for the last year, although I didn’t realize it. I’ve been putting myself in uncomfortable situations…outside my comfort zone…for months now. Just taking babysteps. Take starting a home business. Totally not like me. Talking in front of people? Pu-lease! Doing webinars? Never dreamed it in a million years. BUT, I will tell you this. I have grown more as a person in the last year than I can even explain.
Once I made the commitment to go ALL IN….things started to change for me. The fear started to fall away. I’m not going to sit here and say it’s all rainbows and sunshine and I have no more fear. It took me this long to get here…I still have lots of work to do.
So, I don’t know about you…maybe you are happy where you are…or maybe you aren’t. All I know is, there is room on this side of fear for you. Make a commitment to get out of your own way! Pursue your passion. Jump out of that airplane. Take that trip. Call that friend.
