Fear is a normal part of everyday life.
We experience fear almost every day.
We carry fear with us where ever we go.
How much are we missing out on because of fear?
What possibilities are we closed off to because of our fear?
What joyful experiences are we not pursuing because of our fear?
Fear is insidious.
It creeps into our thinking without our knowing.
It blocks our dreams, hopes, and desires.
So how can we get unblocked?
How can we recognize how fear is holding us back?
By asking ourselves one simple question:
What would I do if I had no fear?
It is amazing what that one question can evoke.
Keep in mind, we are not saying that you won’t have fear.
Yet when we ask ourselves that question, suddenly a whole new world of possibilities.
We will still have fear.
Once we know what we would do if we didn’t have fear, we can begin to move in that direction.
We can bring those options to the table and act on them.
We do not have to eliminate our fear.
We do not have to work through our fear.
We just have to recognize where it is holding us back and move in that direction.
It is where we want to go.
It is what we want to be dong anyway.
We just didn’t know it.
And now we do.
And now we can take the smallest steps in that direction and bypass the fear.
So what would you do, right now, if you had no fear?
