Let’s jump right in. To begin, living unfearfully is not indicative of not heeding warnings. Fear is a beneficial and life sustaining mechanism. It is there to alert you of danger. To that end, there are those that allow fear to reign in their life, in affect allowing it to become a paralyzing condition. Truth be told, fear simply vibes off our own energy. While it is there to offer us protection, it is not savvy enough to discern between a real threat and nervousness.
What is it about fear that allows it to have such a stronghold in our lives.? Fear of failure. Fear of success. Fear of the unknown. Fear of the known. There is not a rule that exists that indicates we only get one win in life. You can have as many wins as you want, if you are willing to put in the work. Learn to shift your focus from what can go wrong to what can go right. In fact, learn to dismiss the concept of this idea of wrong. Everything is an opportunity to learn and grow – a lesson for your overall improvement.
Below are some steps to take to begin moving towards living unfearfully.
- Exploration. Be willing to try something different. A new way of doing things. Something that challenges you and the status quo on something.
- Give fear a name. Yes, you read that correctly…give your fear a name. Personalize it because it is not going anywhere. Remember, it does serve a purpose. Make fear your friend, not your foe.
- Check it. Tell your fear when it’s protection is not required. Make it go have a seat while you work to unlock areas of unexplored potential.
To embrace the concept fully, we must learn to live a life with unabashed courage, throwing caution to the wind, and live unfearfully to achieve our big vision picture for our lives. This may not come to your overnight but continue to work at it and see how things begin to take shape in your life.
Wishing you a golden week,
