I took my own advice this weekend.
Other than work, I had no set plans. I wound up spending time with friends, shopping, going out for almost every meal, relaxing, exercising (finally), and smiling until my heart was content. Perfect.
Let’s all take a moment and laugh at my face in the last photobooth picture- I die.
Now onto some serious stuff…
When was the last time you felt afraid? When was the last time you did or didn’t do something because you were scared of the potential consequences? Seriously. Think about it.
As humans, 99% of our decisions are made from a state of fear.
We’re afraid of getting hurt, getting sick, losing something, losing someone, losing a competition, being the worst, being the best, disappointing someone, disappointing ourselves, being late, being too early, getting in trouble, being ‘unhealthy’, not making the right decision…need I continue?
Imagine if we were able to flip our mindsets upside-down and make decisions from a place of confidence and positivity. Imagine how different things would be. Imagine the possibilities.
We can let our fear control us or we can control our fear <— and that’s exactly what I’m challenging you to do. Show your fear who’s boss. Feel it, accept it, then turn around and mold it into something positive. Don’t run away from opportunities and don’t sell yourself short. You have more power and intelligence than you’ve ever give yourself credit for…I guarantee it. So go out and own it.
Here’s to living life unafraid…
