Fear plays such an important role in our lives. The amount of fear that you have or listen to will establish the limits of your life. Fear will always be there but remember, it's not a sign that you're doing something bad. It's a sign that you're doing something bold!
One thing that has really helped me overcome fear is to understand that it's not a bad thing. It thinks it is protecting you. You have the power to stand up to your fear and tell it to be quiet. A couple months ago I wrote a letter to my fear and, from time to time, when I am feeling fearful I will read the letter - it really does help! I encourage you to do the same. Here is my letter...
I appreciate your concern. Thank you for thinking of me but I'm going to do it anyway because I was put on this planet for more. God created me to be the best version of myself and I can't do that if I follow you. I'm going to help so many people and my capacity for love is going to be so large that I don't have room for you. I understand you think you have my best interests in mind but I am a CHAMPION and I will not stop until I've reached my purpose. I want to grow as much as I can every single day and inspire others to do the same. I'm sorry but I wont let you dim my light anymore. I love you and thank you for being there for me the best way you know how. <3
That's it! Short and sweet but so powerful! Don't judge yourself for what you write. Speak from the heart and have the courage to stand up to your fear! Fear will always be there but everything you want is on the other side of fear so read it regularly until eventually you wont have to anymore. You got this!
