334 Would You Let Fear Be Your Teacher?
This is Anne with your Coaching On The Go.
I have been talking in detail about the different things that show up in your life that have great titles, but they really are all fear.
Fear is the biggest thing.
It’s the greatest common denominator.
When I look among all of my clients and into my own life and into the lives of entrepreneurs, yours and people that I know.
It’s nothing to feel bad about.
Fear has caused you to create some intriguing mechanisms so that you can avoid it or put it off to the side, or call it something different because it makes you feel silly that you are scared of things.
Fear is part of the expansion process.
Fear is part of stepping out into new territory to achieve a high-level vision that you’ve never experienced before.
If you feel fear on a regular basis, congratulations!
If you acknowledge your fear and look into it, you’re going to find gifts in there that propel you to the next level.
I am to the point with my understanding of the fear that I know within my fears are the very gifts and stepping stones that I get to master, to be at the next level, to be in my next vision.
I am to the point where I welcome that discomfort from the fear so that I can take a good look inside of it, figure it out, walk through it, and expand and feel the satisfaction of that expansion.
These last 14 days or so, I have talked about protecting yourself.
Fear lets you know when to protect yourself.
I’ve talked about comfort zone preservation, the avoidance of vulnerability, negative self-talk, perfectionism, procrastination, overwhelm and indecision, impostor syndrome, self-sabotage, comparing yourself to others, defensiveness or resistance to feedback, and analysis paralysis.
Recognizing when fear is stepping in to keep you from something or to teach you something is a critical step in your professional and personal life.
It allows you to grow.
It allows you to address the underlying emotions and beliefs that could be holding you back.
And when would these things naturally show up?
When you are stepping into a new level.
By acknowledging and working through your fears, you can move forward with courage.
I always tell you that transformation is courageous and you can step towards your intentions in your powerful vision.
After all, you’re a master creator.
Have a beautiful day.
