Success is in Your Hands

Take a moment to think about one of your goals. One of your BIG goals. Perhaps you want to run a marathon, lose 50 pounds, go back to school, find the love of your life, or move to a new city…

Now, think about why you have not achieved that goal yet.

If you are like most of us, you are avoiding committing time and energy to that goal, either consciously or unconsciously, out of fear. Fear of change, fear of failure, fear of what other people will think…

And that’s ok. Fear is a natural reaction to the unknown. But, now that you realize that some type of fear is blocking you from moving toward your goal, you have taken the first step to overcoming that fear. Give that fear a name, write it down.

For example:

“I am afraid that if I <insert goal> people will criticize me and tell me I am wrong/selfish/stupid/living in a fantasy world.”

Now that you have identified your fear, you can start taking steps to turning that fear into success.

You have played the, “What if…” game for awhile focusing on the fear, so you know how to play. It is time to turn the tables on fear and start playing the game to win!

Here’s how:

    Take the fear you identified earlier and rewrite it as a success:

      • It feels great to have <insert goal>! People congratulate me daily on my success and tell me I have inspired them to follow their aspirations.
  • Realizing that success is possible and focusing on the ultimate feelings of gratitude, happiness, and self-esteem that come from places the key to success directly in your hands. You are in charge of your success. You are in charge of achieving your goal. NOT the fear!
  • By looking your fear in the eye and telling it to “shove off”, you put yourself in control and allow yourself to start taking steps, even if they are small at first, down the road to success. In effect you:
  • And after all, isn’t that all you really need to do?

    PS-Once you have identified your fear and written it down, burn it as a symbol of your newfound courage and determination.

    Until next time, have a happy healthy day!
