Is fear holding you back from achieving your dreams?

Is fear holding you back from achieving your dreams?

“There are people who put their dreams in a little box and say … “Yes, I’ve got dreams.” Then they put the box away and bring it out once in a while to look in it, and yep, they’re still there.” ~ Erma Bombeck

Fear does NOT want you to read this … certainly not to the end!

Pull up a chair because I’m about to reveal it’s best kept secret, and next time fear shows itself and threatens to de-rail your dreams, you will be prepared for it’s savvy powers of persuasion.

Fear is too often victorious.

It “wins” because many would sooner share their worst fear with the mailman before they share what they dream of with a member of their family. Dreams are often thought to be private, often under lock and key, and showing up at the starting line can feel risky. Most people opt to keep them a secret.

Fear encourages this. Often, all it takes is a few words and you cry uncle.

“Be realistic.”
“That’s impossible.”
“You’ll never succeed.”
“Be reasonable … I mean, really.”
“Who do you think you ARE?”
“Don’t set your sights too high.”

“Why rock the boat?”
“Imagine what so-and-so will say…”
“Things are good enough.”
“What? You don’t have enough (fill in the blank) for that.”
The list goes on…

Any one of these can have you throwing in the towel and surrendering to your repetitive reality of the familiar, and putting those dreams back into their box like that nice pair of shoes that seemed like a good idea at the time but that you never wear.

Not okay. It hurts your life. It hurts your legacy. It hurts your happiness. And it stunts your potential.

There’s a better way.

There is a wiser, braver, bolder part of YOU that believes it’s possible and every once in a while you get a glimpse of this higher truth.  Until, fear kicks into overdrive … and your dreams get put up on that hard to reach shelf to collect more dust.

Fear is masterful at scaring you right back into your “safe zone” of “good enough”, or worse, “comfortable misery.”

If the first few statements don’t do the trick in getting you to resign yourself to “reality”, fear has a Plan B. Waiting in the wings, it’ll serve up an abundance of so-called “evidence”:

  • A history lesson about times you didn’t succeed or felt embarrassed.
  • Probabilities as if they predict your certain future.
  • Piercing reminders about the expectations of others, all the “shoulds”, rules, and social norms.
  • It’ll dredge up that story about that time when you did that thing (you know the thing)… and why you should play it “safe”, anything to avoid something like that happening again!

Oh yes, fear can have you paralyzed in no time, tricking you into thinking it’s on your side as has your best interest at heart.

Yet, just ‘cuz it’s persuasive and persistent, doesn’t mean it’s True!

Rather than run for a broom to sweep it back under the rug, what’s SO critical to understand is that your dream becomes possible the moment you decide it is. (Yes, you really ARE that powerful.)

If you’ve mistakenly filed your dreams under “impossible”, don’t worry, you can re-file them.

And while it may feel like you’ll need to make HUGE changes and taking BIG scary leaps, know that taking the right small steps are the key.)

Here’s what fear WON’T tell you:

More than anything, it wants to KEEP you from seeing the cost of NOT going for it.

It doesn’t want you to know what you’re missing.  It doesn’t want you to know the price you’re paying for not prioritizing your dreams. It doesn’t want you to know the impact of putting off its fulfillment and delaying your heart’s deepest desires.

Consider: What is the cost – and the RISK – of always wondering? What is the cost, and the risk, of waiting another 6 months? Year? Another 5 years? 10 years?

If you wait another 6 months, that means another 6 months living a life that doesn’t fit you. It means feeling stuck in the routines. It means feeling frustrated and disgruntled every single day. It means feeling disconnected from the truth of who you are meant to be. Feeling that you could have done so much more.  That feeling that you could have lived more! Feeling that discontent everyday for the next x number of months or years.

Can you afford THAT?!?

Fear fears THIS question most of all, because it knows the answer is NO.

If you’re ready and you do not want to pay that price … here are two simple ways to get started today:

Yay.  You’re on your way.  Fear’s got nothing on you.

What kind of dreamer are YOU?

What kind of dreamer are YOU?

Are YOU a Driven Dreamer or a Running-in-place Dreamer?
How do YOU respond to a “set back”, or when fears pop up telling you don’t have enough (fill in the blank)…?
Here’s the scoop on what sets driven dreamers apart from running-in-place dreamers:
First, 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 — 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”.
Sadly, until you break out of this belief pattern, “someday” never comes.
In contrast, 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.
Fritz Perls (a German-born psychotherapist) said, “Fear is excitement without the breath.” 
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?

Content Too Good To Hoard

I have a confession to make.

I’ve been waiting for the “right” time to share this …. and I got a kick-in-the pants to do it now after watching a video by Kyle Cease about hoarding content.

Oddly enough, I too had been on the very same thought-train earlier this week. Just a few days ago, I decided I would publicly share some Truly Transformative content from one of my Members Only Programs, freely … simply because it’s too important NOT to share with as many people as possible. I decided that I’m simply not comfortable only sharing it with a select few.

So, here it is. Click here to watch.

Fauxbias Video

In this video, I reveal my proven 3-step Freedom From Fauxbias™ Process, to stop F.E.A.R from: 1) sabotaging your dreams, 2) undermining your potential, and 3) slowing down your success. Forever change your relationship with fear. Create a life that you can’t wait to get-up-and-out-of-bed-for-in-the-morning and live the life you’ve always dreamed of – now, not later.

From my heart to yours, I hope this content serves you well. Honestly, I hope it completely rocks your world – because I know it can. I hope it supports you in big ways *and* small. Not only do I hope you will watch it, and bravely comment (as prompted by what I share in this video) … I ALSO hope you will pass it on because *far too many* people don’t know this critically important information, information that can quite literally change the course of your life.

Big talk, I know. And I stand behind every word.

A global shift in consciousness is underway and brave dreamers and doers are rapidly propelling this awakening further. Watch, and please do pass it on. Together we are so much more.

May your dreams always inspire more than they intimidate,
