It is amazing what fear can do.
Many great ideas go to waste, innovations never happen, and life upgrades go un-upgraded.
When I left my last job in a casino, it amazed me that one of my co-workers said they envied me because I was going back to school and getting a new job and they could never leave there for fear. Fear of what? Fear of failure and change.
Taking on something that was different from her norm was too frightening to her. It's not that she didn't want to...fear was keeping her from other possibilities.
A new position for me just opened up, it would be great experience towards my goals, and the idea of taking it on SCARES me, right down to the particles of my being. The idea also makes me want to do something and I realize the possibilities, and that excites me. So, I hold on to the excitment and the possibilities and leave the fear in the back somewhere because without it the others would not exist.
Fear just needs to grabbed by the horns and embraced. Fear leads to anxiety and excitment, the need to take action and getting something done.
One of my favorite blogs that I stumbled upon just recently for my life tool box is all about fear and over coming it. It is inspiring to read and makes you want to go out there and "get'em."
