As I’ve focused and committed to personal growth over the last 20 years, it’s been an amazing ride. I found a process that helps me to flip fear. I am growing and changing and things I once feared, no longer bother me.
The frustration is that new fears creep up. The good news is that the fears I am now encountering are new, different fears. I am not stuck in my past fears, but I still have fear in my life.
I can’t eradicate fear from my existence, I don’t think we humans can. We are drama machines. Fear is a part of our lives. Often though, they are even bigger in scope and intensity. This can be disheartening.
If fear is unavoidable I have two choices. I can either give up or choose to flip it. I can can expedite the drama. I can flip the fear. I can use the fear as an inspiration.
One of my dreads about facing the fear and flipping the fear, is do I have the energy for the fight against the thing that I am fearing? The big flip here is that it isn’t a fight.
I can embrace it. I can embrace each fear. I realize what matters most. I can clarify who I am and follow my North Star by working through these fears.
Take a deep breath. It is a lot less daunting when I realize big fears aren’t a fight. Maybe they are opportunities. We can use the adversity to transform exponentially to the next level.
It is a great time to be alive.
