It’s time to KICK SOME ASS!
“In order to kick ass you must first lift up your foot.”
– Jen Sincero
First of all, if you have not read the book You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero, you are seriously missing out! Awesome AWESOME read…. you will seriously feel like you can go out and become a badass!
But anyways, so what are you waiting for?! What is holding you back? It’s normal to have that sense of fear when you’re trying something new for the first time. Taking that first step is the hardest part… but have you ever avoided going for something or trying something new because fear stopped you? Fear will always be there, you can’t avoid it. Fear to a certain extent is good! It’s your body’s way of telling you when you may be in danger. But when did fear come into play for us? As kids, we were fearless right? Nothing scared us!! We were practically invincible, until the first time we got hurt. That may come in the form of mental hurt or physical hurt, but whatever came about, that’s when our fear came into our heads. Little did we know how that was going to affect us a certain way and has lead us to the fears we have now!
So what are your fears? Maybe it’s meeting new people? You have that fear of rejection. Making a new career move? Starting a business? You have that fear of failure. Joining a new gym? Maybe you have fear of others judging you. Fear of not being perfect. But you know what’s worse? Regret!! Whatever it is you are feeling, it is stopping you from doing something that will make you a better person! It’s stopping you from something that could possibly change your life for the better! So question, does fear stop you from doing certain things?
If the answer is yes… JUST DO IT!! Stop these self limiting behaviors. You deserve more! I assure you once you do it, even though your heart rate is probably beating 150s or higher and your palms are sweaty and it may feel like you’re going to pass out, YOU WILL SURVIVE! I promise!! You can see here I forreal JUMPED OUT OF A PLANE!! Heck YES I was nervous! My heart was racing… sweaty palms.. my mouth was dry.. but you know what?! I knew I would regret not doing it! Now you don’t have to do something this extreme… but you know what I mean!
For me, it may seem like I have all my shit together… but I don’t. Yes I made the decision to leave my nursing job. I’ve dabbled in the network marketing companies and while I wasn’t top in the company or anything with either of the companies I was with, I still made an income from home and met a ton of people who shaped me who I am today! That is a win in my book. So while it seems that I have no fear with doing anything in life, I do! Right now, I still fear failure, and I know I will continue to fail. But I choose to not let it stop me from trying and putting myself out there. I mean, what’s the worst that can happen?
I fear that I’m putting everything I have into launching my health coaching, but what if people don’t want me as their coach? Or what if I fail my clients and they don’t get results? Will I still make enough money to support my family? Will I still get to live my dreams and travel the world?? This goes on in my mind 24/7! I can easily let fear win and just quit and go back to something that is in my comfort zone, but I know in my heart that I will regret not trying. Better yet, what if I really do succeed?! See what I did there? Changed the way I think! Instead of thinking the worst… think about what good can come out of it! The best thing might happen and BOOM! All because you pushed your fears aside and just overcame them!
So the purpose of this post is not to make you feel bad. It’s to let you know YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Everyone has fears, but what you do with it is up to you! It will be uncomfortable, that’s for sure… but getting out of that comfort zone is when AWESOME things happen for you! You’ll never know if you never try!
This week, challenge yourself to try something you’ve always wanted to do but have just been too afraid to try!
Don’t forget to be AWESOME!
