How do YOU respond to a “set back”, or fear of not having what it takes, or concerns that you don’t have enough (fill in the blank)?
Are YOU a Driven Dreamer or a Running-in-place Dreamer?
Here’s what sets driven dreamers apart from running-in-place dreamers:
Running-in-place dreamers see fear as the *reason* to stay put. They believe fear to be a legitimate warning sign. They buy into the false belief that if you’re uncomfortable, that must mean it’s not the right time or it’s a “sign from the universe” that it’s the wrong thing to do.
This is just plain old not true and absolutely a self-sabotaging thought pattern. It’s a textbook trick of the ego-mind that, if you buy into it, will keep you playing small and keep you waiting for “someday”. And sadly, until you break out of this belief pattern, “someday” never comes.
What Driven Dreamers do … is they make the decision, *once* to do something, and then they breathe into it and follow through. They do it despite excuses and fear of lack/success/failure.
Here’s a quote by Fritz Perls (German-born psychotherapist): He said, “Fear is excitement without the breath.” I absolutely love this quote and remind myself of it regularly.
What this means is that the less breath you feed your fear, the bigger your fear gets. In contrast, the more you breathe into it, the more your excitement will take a front seat, and the more fear will ease.
Big, easy breaths really are an antidote to fear. Combine this with an unwavering commitment to follow through, not buying into your own excuses, and you become unstoppable.
Each and every breath is literally an opportunity to transform fear into excitement about what’s possible.
Each and every breath is literally an opportunity to decide to go from a place of limitation, to a place of expansion and to move into truly living from a place of possibility.
Where do YOU see yourself in this? Are you a driven obstacles-have-nothing-on-me dreamer … or are you a running-in-place, fear-takes-me-out-again-and-again dreamer?
