Sometimes we all get nervous about certain things and ultimately limit ourselves and back away from challenges due to those nerves. I would argue that it is just better to “jump off the cliff” as opposed to limiting yourself and not reaching goals due to a fear. I have recently xperienced “the tipping over point” that I’ve been waiting for. A few things settled into place, a few new things on the horizon, and I am having trouble coming to terms with a few things due to a fear that makes me want to run away and forget about plans altogether.
The Fight or Flight systems in my brain are screaming RUN! RUN AWAY! FLEE! But what I would be fleeing from isn’t dangerous–just different. So, I pledge to fight. I will stay, stand up to my fear, and jump off the cliff.
Too many analogies going on here.
Let’s just say that in the event that you are feeling stressed by a decision, or by your inability to make the RIGHT decision because of a fear–just do it. What do you have to lose? If nothing else you are going to learn a helluva lot about yourself, and you will be happy you did in the end.
Wishing everyone a lovely weekend, and I hope that you’ll stand up and fight with me.
