Are you standing in your own way?

I had a conversation recently with a dear friend of mine who, after sharing my thoughts and excitement with her, I told her I was afraid of the exciting things that could come from working on my goals and dreams. 

She asked me what I was afraid of and I told her that I was afraid of success. I also shared that I love doing what I do, and I want to share it with the world but I’m holding myself back because of the fear of the unknown.

Have you ever done that? Have you ever held yourself back from running full force into your dream because you were afraid of the unknown?

After taking a couple days to reflect on our conversation, I realized that I am smart, healthy, and enjoy a good challenge.  I am someone who knows what she wants and while I’m afraid at times of the success I may have from my goal achievement, I know it’s where I want to be. 

So, I will push ahead, and I encourage you to examine your thoughts around your goals and dreams. Let’s see if your fear can somehow be pushed out of the way so you can keep moving toward your goals.

For me, I take time each morning and write down the goals I have, even if I write the same goals every day for a month. By doing this, it will allow me to keep my dreams and goals in full focus and will help me continue to grow and be strong enough to walk away from the fear.

P.s. What have you done to take action on your goals? Have you sat down and written them all out? If you need support in getting your goals in order, let me know.
