Don’t let fear get in the way of your adventure. I know we say it time and time again but it is true. When we let our fears stand in the way of what we want to do, we are honestly taking a step back and not getting out of the never ending downward negative pattern that we have worked so hard with not doing. Not being, not feeling, not seeing and not moving forward.
When going over the Law of Attraction, it states that what we think and believe are what our results will be. Either going in the positive direction or the negative direction. For creating the life that we want those goals that we have in our minds, in our hearts, and in our journals or vision boards that we have created we are setting in motion of letting go of our fears. I know it sounds strange but it is. When we believe with our whole hearts and minds that we CAN do anything that we put ourselves to it makes a world of difference.
Now going back in the past a little to my grade 4 year, I was deathly afraid of public speaking and speeches. I would always get tongue tied, stuttered or even slowed down whenever we had to read out loud because I was that UNCOMFORTABLE. My heart would be racing a mile a minute. Because I was scared. Because I know I was being judged, not just by my teacher, but by the students in the classroom as well.
Growing up was tough enough but with the constant nagging, bullying, and knowing that I was being picked on because I had a learning disability just made those fears worse. I didn’t feel worthly. I didn’t have the self confidence because of those experiences. Yes I know kids can be cruel, sometimes they say things they don’t mean but there’s an old saying that comes to my mind, Kid’s speak the truth ( well depending on the situation of course but that is what I have always heard). But for an 8-12 year old it stings, it hurts, and it sticks with you along the way. Sometimes those feelings of not having enough confidence, self worth or self respect can potentially harm that child or individual as they grow older.
I was in this negative behaviour pattern for so long that it was really scary trying to get out of it. It was only about 2 years ago when I decided that enough of enough. I had enough with being bullied, abused in every sense of the word. I was done with being taking advantage of both in relationships I’ve had been in to letting go of friends I thought were really great friends at one point, and felt that enough was enough. I had enough of people telling me what I could not do. I had enough of that negative way of thinking, of feeling, and of believing, I was taking back my own life and no one was going to stop me while doing so. It was time to put all my fears on the back burner so to speak and to just let go and enjoy it.
When I started in the direct sales business some of the fears I mentioned about talking in front of a big crowd are still there. I sometimes still stumble or jumble up my words but then I slow my thoughts down in my head and start again, because I love what I do. I’ve learn just to take things in stride an always be in the present so that I can enjoy life. I still need reminders from time to time so I look back on those vision boards that I have made up during the last few years and I can see that light, that glow from the inside because I am Happy, Healthy, and Thriving.
What are some of your experiences when letting go of your fears? Or what has made you say enough was enough?
