“Curiosity will conquer fear even more than bravery will.”
— James Stephens
What are the fears that hold you back from living your dreams?
Perhaps a fear of messing it all up? Or being a fraud? Not being prepared enough or smart enough?
Last week, I talked about the importance of taking Imperfect Action, and why it’s far better than procrastinating on your dreams.
But the truth is, sometimes our fears hold us back from taking any kind of action, and if we don’t talk about these fears, we are missing a big part of the picture.
In this week’s video, I talk about how our fears are not something to push down or bulldoze over… but can actually be our greatest teachers if we are willing to get curious and listen to what they have to say.
One of the things I hold as a central belief in my work with clients and the women in my programs is that each and every person has inherent, remarkable wisdom inside.
I believe that’s true EVEN for the debilitating fears that we feel around moving ourselves forward.
Each one of us developed, created or inherited our fears at one point because our psyche was trying to keep us safe. At some level, though it seems like the opposite… the fear came out of self-love and the desire for safety, not out of an intentional desire to destroy our lives or hold us back.
Your fears are trying to keep you safe…. (such sweet little things, aren’t they?)
AND... the truth is, in order to grow and follow your destiny, staying safe isn’t necessarily where you want to hang out all the time.
So my belief is that if you can get curious and listen to what’s underneath the fear, what it’s trying to teach you, then you can actually dissipate its power and set yourself free.
I hope you enjoy this video…
In it I take you through a very simple process to help you listen deeply to the wisdom and messages within your fears so you can authentically move through them with love and understanding.
And you know what, I’m pretty sure that with love and understanding, all things are possible.
I know with all my heart that you have a destiny and purpose on this earth, dear sister… so I hope this video helps you take another step forward in the direction of your dreams.
