While what you put in that blank may be different than anyone else, we all have that blank to fill. Not a day goes by that we aren't faced with overcoming some fear. Some days the fears are smaller, some days they seem bigger than life. But knowing that we have the choice to confront our fears head on is an amazing promise of progress.
We don't get it right every time. We fall down. We scrape our knees, and maybe our emotions too. It's in the getting back up to look fear in the eye and calmly saying "no thank you" that tells the real story.
The story of those who've been there, done that. Felt pain, felt joy. Felt setbacks, and turned around to launch a comeback. Experienced lows and bounced back to enjoy the highs of pushing past the hard stuff.
So while we may all fill in the blank with a different word, remember this promise.
Filling it in and confronting it gets a whole lot easier when we realize we are in the great company of friends and family who are all doing the same thing. Moving forward. Gaining momentum. Starting a movement of kicking fear aside in the place of joy.
The secret of life?
No one can sum that up in one sentence…but this will help.
Conquering fear is about relationships. Going through the hard with those who are doing the same. And when we all come out on the other side?
There's no better feeling.
Stop giving power to the fear, and realize it's overcome through saddling up next to great friends and family as we all do this thing called life…
That's a great little secret. So good, in fact, that it shouldn't be a secret anymore.
