On The Other Side Of Fear



“When you’re scared, you stay as you are!”
Stephen Richards

We all are afraid of change, doing things differently. For much of my life I have been telling myself, “Don’t be afraid.

And it is only recently that I am realising how wrong that is. Do not be afraid is like saying, “don’t move out of the way when someone tries to hit you” or “don’t flinch at the heat from a fire” or “don’t blink.” It is like saying ‘don’t be human’.

I am afraid and you are afraid and we are all always going to be afraid of something, because that is life.

What I need to be telling myself is, “be afraid, but do it anyway.”Live anyway!

Courage is taking small steps in the right direction even though, sometimes, that really is terrifying thing to do. Finding the courage that makes you an inch closer to where you want to be.

The courage that makes you, in one year, closer to the goal you visualized than you are today. just one step at the time. Tiny steps in the right direction.

You know what is the next step for you to take. Take that step……yes, it is a challenge. Be courageous today. You will look back a year from now and be glad you took it.

“Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.”
