Facing fear builds trust
I never thought that fear would be the thing that holds me back in my life. I mean in my earlier days, I was the one who went after the tough opportunities and was asked to do the difficult work that needed to be done. I had the mindset of just do it and get it over with. Thinking this way moved me continually moved my life forward. Back then, I exuded confidence and never thought a second of what others thought of me. I just did what I needed to do.
Then, like so many women, my life started to change. More responsibility and much bigger issues that needed my attention started to chip away at my confidence and that feeling of being in control. For the first time in my life, I didn’t exactly know what do to or how to take care of things that I so naturally just did previously.
I felt that if I made a wrong choice, the consequences would be too great. So I forced myself to take care of everything the best I could and I blocked all the other things that used to be so important in my life. I couldn’t see another way. The fear of making a bad decision that may hurt my family was holding me back. Fear, that started a slew of limiting beliefs that I had never felt before and continued to increase.
Fear produces more fear and the cycle continues. The stress and daily overwhelm is heavy and it becomes difficult to get through daily tasks that were hardly a thought before. I used to count. Counting helped me to stay on task and get through what was necessary. But, life shouldn’t really be something you just want to get through? This thought process was numbing, and a Band-Aid that was holding it all together.
I am not alone, so many women stop their true lives to take care of the things that are important and pressing and simply lose themselves in the process. I used to think I was the only one. But putting your life on hold to take care of anything, regardless of its importance, changes you from the core. The core of you that is actually needed to accomplish what you want.
The core that gives you that inner security and trust that you are able to do what needs to be done and it’s the right thing. When things become overwhelming, it may feel natural to look outside yourself for the answers, and your trust starts to shift to believe that others have the key to help move you through. When you begin to trust that others know more than you do regarding your life, your inner trust and compass shut down.
The only way to combat the fear and move to an area of confidence and lightness is to bring that trust back into you, and to listen to your own intuition and guide. When you do this, life will become easier and things naturally flow and change around you. When you open up space for the things that you really want, the things you really want will fill that space.
You are not alone and you have everything you need right now to move forward, build your confidence and re create the life you have been dreaming of.
It is always just the simplest shifts that make the big difference. I would love to talk with you. Please schedule a totally free discovery call here.
