To get to where we want to be will require change. I know, I said a bad word. The evil “C” word. Often times, change is what keeps us from moving forward and from growing. We like the comfort of what we know and sometimes fear the unknown.
As Zig Zigler says, “F-E-A-R has two meanings:
- "Forget Everything and Run"
- "Face Everything and Rise"
Fear is something we have all faced and will face again. It’s inevitable in our life, career and business. So rather than fearing the unknown, let fear be a driving motivation to actually help you make the change necessary to succeed and rise. Moments like this provide us with an opportunity to show our resolve. Taking on uncertainty is a great confidence builder.
Where will you let your fear take you today? What successes await you just around the corner? I challenge you to be bold and step outside your comfort zone. Challenge yourself and do something you might fear. There are only two possible outcomes.
