Feel the fear and do it anyway!
Here is a very powerful insight: see everything that happens in your life as being for your best interest.
Anything that annoys you is for teaching you patience.
Anyone who abandons you is for teaching you how to stand up on your own two feet.
Anything that angers you is for teaching you forgiveness and compassion.
Anything that has power over you is for teaching you how to take your power back.
Anything you hate is for teaching you unconditional love.
Anything you fear is for teaching you courage to overcome your fear.
Anything you can't control is for teaching you how to let go and trust the universe. J. Kiddard French Author (one of my favourite authors!!!)
Today someone asked me how do I seem so quiet and then come and speak in front of sixty odd people, am I seem totally different. Do I not feel fear? Duh of course!!!!! I bloody well do! I have butterflies in my stomach for real! But I feel the fear and do it anyway! What's worse that feeling or not accomplishing something you set out to do? That type of fear to me is just a sign that you are about to do something awesome, something big, something you always wanted to do. Then when you do it you say to yourself well darn what was I really afraid of in the first place. Keep doing and soon enough you use that fear as fuel and the bigger fear before you do something the bigger the dream or accomplishment.
So what did I learn today?
the only thing you must truly fear is fear itself. I've learnt to step right into and through my fears because I know that whatever happens I can handle it and to give in to fear is to give away the right to live life on my own terms.
