Facing Your Fears

Have you ever really thought about what holds you back from attaining your dreams?  Have you ever really given consideration to what you have versus what you want?

I see so many ‘words of wisdom’ on various social media channels.  Things like, “God gives you want you need, not what you want.”  Or, “Things happen when they are supposed to, not necessarily when you want them.”  And, “We may not understand…..”  And on it goes.

Now, I’m not saying these sayings don’t have a ring a truth to them, but I equally believe in, “God helps those who help themselves.”  And, “Luck is preparedness meeting opportunity.”

Instead of waiting for something to happen, make it happen.  Find out what stops you from getting ahead.  Study your own fears to understand why you aren’t getting what you want out of life.

Spend some time this weekend really thinking about your life, your habits, and your responsibility in where you are.  Then, give some thought to what you need or can do to make the changes necessary to really face your fears and conquer whatever holds you back. 

This isn’t something small; give it some real thought!
