I saw this quote shared on Facebook the other day. It really made me stop and think. It said “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” Hmmm…
The other side of fear.
What exactly does that mean?
I thought about it for awhile and finally understood what Jack Canfield was saying. We all have big dreams and some of us, hopefully all of us, have the courage to pursue them. Even with that courage, we run into that old hang up, FEAR. It is constantly there, trying to stop us.
Well, really, it is us afraid to grow bigger than we ever have before. When we are having success, and that success compounds and grows bigger and bigger, it starts getting scarey. We have never had that level of success before, and it doesn’t feel comfortable. We wanted success, but we feel more pressure and expectations with that success.
How do we sustain the success?
What will others think of us?
Can we handle the success?
So many questions and unknowns confront us.
But, once we push through the fear, we will find that those concerns really aren’t real. Our sub-conscious tries to keep us in a state that we know as “normal”. But on the other side of fear, is a new normal that we worked for and deserve!
I have heard it said that something is not worth pursuing unless it scares you! Wow! To me that means tackling something that scares us, helps us grow and improve. Helps us get to where we are meant to be!
The Other Side of Fear
Next time you feel that fear that sometimes stops us in our tracks, just remember “Everything you want is on the other side of fear“, and push through it. For, it is there, you will find success!
