Sometimes you need to do the thing that scares you precisely because it scares you. If you're afraid of the truth, you need to ask for it. If you fear the unfamiliar, you need to step into it. If you're scared of losing control, you need to let go of it.
The things we need to do most and what would give us the best opportunities are often the scariest things to do. Sometimes we can't see the need because all we feel is the fear. These are moments of truth that everyone faces. I want you to win these moments of truth.
Fear wants to be in control. It wants you to submit to it. Avoiding the scary thing because it's scary is how you allow fear to become too powerful of an influence on your behavior and quality of life. Fear grows and expands. Acting from fear once makes it easier to do again. Before you know it, fear is in charge of a large portion of your decisions.
Doing the scary thing is how you stay in control. It's also how you learn, grow, and get closer to the true you. The best of you.
Are you scared? Good. That's normal. It's ok to be afraid. Now do the scary thing.
Answer the call. Do the work.
