You say, “I want this and I want that.” Yes, that comes in loud and clear, but so does the fact that you are more loyal to the fear that keeps you from acting on it than you are to the actual dream. I’ve done this, too. So before you go off and think I’m judging and being all high and mighty…listen. I’ve been on the side of my dreams, where I couldn’t and wouldn’t move one inch toward them because of my fear.
I get it…
But I also get that living like this is insanity.
Fear is useful. It’s an emotion to tell us that something different and difficult is ahead. Let me make myself clear: dreams don’t just show up without something to activate them. That thing usual is intention first, then action. Fear of failure. Fear of losing someone. Fear of rejection. Fear of poverty. Fear of falling into a fucking black hole…lol. Yes, there are as many things to fear as there are stars in the universe. Bottom line: do you really want that “thing” or do you just want to talk about it? Talk is great if have the action to back it up. But, if not, you are just kidding yourself.
Hey, you know that “thing” that has been knocking at your door forever…yes, it’s tapping at your brain right now and has been since you read the title of this blog? I want you to get real about it this week. Tell your fear that you are breaking up with it because you have a date with your dreams! And…don’t look back. Keep walking. Keep intending. Keep moving toward the “thing”. Your fear won’t chase you down, beg at your feet, give you roses, or swear to you its love. No. It is a narcissist. It only has its purpose and job. Remember, it’s telling you to pay attention. Now, pay attention! And say thank you to the fear for warning you. It has done its job. You must now do yours. No Excuses. No Blaming. No Playing the Victim.
Tell us what your “thing” is if you have the guts to.
