I am about to step up and step into who and what I want to to be. Big time. Which means it is a BIG risk. Which means it is uncomfortable. Which means it is scary.
What if I fail?
Oh hello AGAIN!
What if I SUCCEED?
You mean you’re afraid of change.
Am I being selfish?
What by going for your dreams? The ones that include living on purpose, helping others, creating a better life for your family and encouraging your kids to pursue theirs?
Ok then. Am I being reckless?
Will you not do everything you can to make it work?
Yes. But what will other people think of me?
Tell me again why that matters, People-Pleaser?
Fair point. What if I am deluding myself?
Oh yeah you’re definitely doing that by listening to your truth. Deluding yourself is following society’s rules and trying to make your dreams fit into them. Want to make your dreams happen? Create your own rules!
But what if…
ENOUGH!! Tell me what you are feeling?
Scared. Really fucking scared.
OK then best not do it. Don’t take the risk.
I REALLY want to. I NEED to. I HAVE to.
DO you? Why?
Because it feels right, because if I listen to my heart I know it’s true, this is my next step; my next stretch. And I WANT all the outcomes!
So why the fear?
Because there are no guarantees.
There’s never going to be.
Many people in many walks of life, careers and especially entrepreneurs consciously choose to take risks every day.
No breakthroughs, no major success, no big ideas ever come from your comfort zone. There is no such thing as failure; it is valuable insight. Sure you need to weigh up the consequences but ultimately you just have to go with what feels in alignment with your desired outcome which itself is in alignment with your truth.
A risk made in alignment is not a risk.
Please remind me of that through the inevitable challenges ahead!
I will. You just need to be still enough to listen.
Got it. (Deep breath). Let’s do this….!
