Overcoming fear in the pursuit of our goals is the one obstacle that has a way of tripping us up.
“When I dare to be powerful,
to use my strength
in the service of my vision,
then it becomes less and less important
whether I am afraid.”
– Audre Lorde
Many of our goals are just that, goals, but not always are they from the heart. It is important to tap into your heart and find out if the goals you are seeking are truly heart inspired for when they are, the fear has a way of receding even in the face of failure or success – our two greatest fears. Failure is an obstacle only when we find we do not truly believe in the outcome of our goal while success is an obstacle when we fear that we are not enough. Not enough to make the grade, do the work, pull in the people or answer all the inevitable questions. Fear will trip us up every time. Take the time to really, truly look into your heart to see if your heart is connected. For when it is the strength that you need to push through the fear can be found lying just below the surface waiting to be tapped into.
What is your vision?
