Susan Jeffers has a wonderful book, which is now 25 years old call “Feel the fear and do it anyway.” Just the title alone gives me goose bumps, not of trepidation but of excitement. What is holding you back from fulfilling your desires? Are you willing to do what it takes to move out of your comfort zone? Can you practice what you preach?
Sometimes in life, we all need a gentle nudge to get us out of our habitual behaviours that keep us in a loop of dissatisfaction. Sometimes, we are just too scared to tell someone that we love them for fear of rejection! Sometimes we cannot be bothered with the mental stamina required to move us into a zone that may feel uncomfortable but will ultimately turn out for our betterment.
Yes, it can be scary to let go of old beliefs that no longer serve you, yes, it is irritating when you try to change a behaviour and your old habits keep winning the day, yet it is in those minor failures that we experience the fortitude to keep getting up and trying again. Persistence ALWAYS wins in matters of personal development. I am currently reading a book by the writer/producer Shonda Rhimes called “The Year of Yes,” and I love it so far. I have turned a lot of my default no’s into welcomed yeses, why, because I am done living the same old programmes and wish for a new energy to enter into my life
Just for today….say YES to the Universe’s call to your heart. Take a momentous leap of faith in one area of your life that you desire change. Feel the fear and do it anyway because let’s face it, the alternative is just bringing you more of the same.
My question to you is this, do you want to LIVE or merely EXIST; the choice is yours!
Have and adventurous weekend.
