F**k FEAR!


In my per­son­al opin­ion, the num­ber-one thing that stops most peo­ple from pur­su­ing their entre­pre­neur­ial dreams is FEAR. Well, you know what I say?? F**k fear. (What??!! I can’t believe she just said that! Well, I did.) So many of us are fear dri­ven. We are mak­ing choic­es, big and small, not based on what we tru­ly want, but on what we are afraid of—what we’re afraid of los­ing, what we’re afraid of win­ning, the fear of work­ing too hard, the fear of not work­ing hard enough, the fear of doing it “wrong,” the fear of rejec­tion, the fear of what oth­ers think of us, the fear that we can’t do it, the fear that we can. Where in your life does fear stop you? Take a moment to look at your life and think about some of the things you REALLY want.

How many of those things are you work­ing toward right now? How many are you not?

Now that we know what you want, I’d love to know what’s stop­ping you. (I bet you’d love to know what’s stop­ping you too, right?) So, take a moment, take a breath, maybe put your hand on your heart and feel into what fears and beliefs are real­ly stop­ping you from get­ting every­thing you want. You may find your­self get­ting emo­tion­al here. That’s ok. Our great­est fears and desires have emo­tion behind them, and some­times they’re eas­i­er to just ignore; it’s high time we give them a voice so we can deal with them. I’ll give you some exam­ples to get you start­ed…

  • Lazi­ness
  • What if I spend my time and I fail?
  • What if I spend my mon­ey and I fail?
  • What if I try as hard as I can and I fail?
  • What if I succeed…then what?!
  • What if he/she won’t love me any­more?
  • What will my friends think?
  • Peo­ple will expect me to…
  • I will expect xyz from myself.
  • I’m just too tired.
  • I don’t want to work that hard.
  • I don’t think I can do it.
  • It’s too hard.
  • I don’t know how.
  • I have too many respon­si­bil­i­ties to fol­low a dream.
  • That’s not the way life works.
  • Hard­ly any­one gets what they real­ly want, what makes me any dif­fer­ent?
  • Etc.

What’s stop­ping you from going after what you tru­ly want in your life?

I’d love to hear in the com­ments below!
