Some days I let fear come between me and my dreams. You let things slide…. you say yes to many good things instead of saying yes to only great things… you let worries about money and time commitments consume you’re mind… and some times you procrastinate and do everything under the sun but work on your dreams.
And then I have to remind myself,
Life is a spectrum of our choices.
Each day is not an isolated point in time, rather a pearl that’s beaded on a neckless into a string of pearls. And there aren’t that many pearls.
If you’re not actively thinking and working on your dreams daily then you are letting fear win.
I can run through every excuse in the books in my head… but at the end of the day, I’m the one who has to decide to take a chance on myself and step out into my discomfort zone.
It’s a choice I have to make each day.
It’s going for the gold, even though you might end up in 3rd place. But you know what’s worse than 3rd place, or even last place for that matter?
Opting out of the race.
Has there been a single person in history who has looked back on their life and thought, “golly, I wish I had listened to my fears more”.
I’m not talking about lions and tigers and bears (oh my). I’m talking about silly creative fears we cling to like a spaceship in the middle of the black sky.
Take it one day, one breath at a time.
Don’t let the fear win.
Let it drive you to be the person you are and the person you want to be.
