Step Out on Fear!
What is the number one thing that stops people from pursuing the life of their dreams?
It is FEAR.
an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.
Most people would never admit to being afraid. It is always called by some other name. They say things like:
"I am being practical."
"I am being realistic."
"It's not worth the trouble."
"That won't happen for me."
When we say these things, we convince ourselves that staying where we are is the right thing to do.
But what if there was more to your life than what you could see right now?
At one point in my life, I had the odds stacked against me.
If you had asked me 30 years ago where I would be, I would not have imagined the life that I am living right now.
When my first daughter was born, I remember looking at her sleeping peacefully in her crib and thinking "I am responsible for this life and the life of her brother." It was overwhelming.
As the tears began to flow, I made a clear decision: I could not stay where I was.
But I was afraid. And felt all alone.
I had left a minimum-wage job and didn't know what was next.
My fears were very real. My parents were not college-educated. They were working-class people and had no significant means to help me.
I had to do this on my own. I was scared to death.
But the ONE thing that I HAD to do and NEEDED to do was move beyond where I was.
The road to where I am is littered with pain and discomfort. It was not easy to face my fear.
Some say faith is believing without fear. I say faith is believing and stepping into your fear.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1, Holy Bible
I have heard that FEAR stands for F.alse E.vidence A.ppearing R.eal.
I say that FEAR is F.acing E.nemies A.nd R.eality.
I have also heard that the opposite of FEAR is FAITH.
I say that that FAITH is about stepping into your FEARS.
What are you AFRAID to do? I am here to tell you that your destiny lies on the other side of that FEAR.
You have to stand boldly against your enemies and face reality. You have to be brave and courageous.
With your knees knocking. And with your hand shaking. And with your face flushed. And with the butterflies floating around in your tummy.
I am here to tell you that your FEAR is holding you back. And it is when you choose to step into your FEAR that you will CONQUER that thing that is holding you back.
It is about seeing beyond where you are and REACHING beyond where you are.
This is the kind of FAITH that leads you into your destiny.
I am still on this journey - conquering my fears one step at a time.
For I see something beyond where I am. And it is MAGNIFICENT.
