Fear is such a funny little (or big) thing.
We’re conditioned by society to move away from our fears – it’s what holds us back from entering dangerous situations like crossing a street of oncoming traffic or heading down a dark alleyway, late at night.
But fear can also hold us back from something we know would be hugely beneficial to the growth of our soul. From my experience, once you’ve conquered one, the others don’t seem like such a big deal.
Steven Pressfield in The War of Art wrote this magnificent quote on fear that IMO needs to be every entrepreneur’s mantra:
“The more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it and the more important it is to the growth of our soul.”
Sure, I could use fear to keep me small… OR I could face it and realise that it’s LIMITING me, not SERVING me.
In today’s video let me show you how to face your fears and turn them into fuel thanks to a little life lesson I learnt from a recent trip to a water-slide park!
Repeat with me: practice your fears and you’ll get better at facing them.
