So you wake up to a day when you feel that nothing feels like worth-doing. You have a lot of dreams running in your head –but it seems that something is stopping you from taking the first step towards achieving your dream. What is it? Why is it not that easy to shove it away and just persist?
The opposite of life is not death. It is fear.
It is the one thing that’s keeping you from the life you want. The life that you truly deserve.
How fear grows inside you
It is when you allow it that it grows enormously, fast. Whenever you make excuses, it breathes faster and sleeps inside you… only to wake up to stop you from doing things you would want to do and to enjoy. Fear is a tricky enemy.
For many of us, it can be acquired from the many things around us. Let us take, for example, other people’s opinions. Each person is unique – and so, it’s not all the time that we can truly understand and accept each other. If you are scared of what people will say in case you want to live the life you want, today is the time to re-think and re-imagine what your dreams are.
Remember, you are not born to always please others. It is the diversity that makes the world thrive. This means that there is no use for you to be anxious about what others may say or think about your life choices. Your dreams will lead you to the best of places and human encounters. They are your pathways to a fulfilling life. If today you are stuck in the idea that it’s other people’s opinion that matters most, you must do something to change that.
Why you need not fear each day
Each day is a gift, and it is a chance for you to get closer to what you want to have and who you want to be. If you feel that you are not enough, you are simply wrong. Carry this with you – your heart is way bigger than your fear.
Think of this, each day, instead of focusing and getting sucked up by being scared, make it a step closer to what your heart truly desires. For example, you want to travel more. On the other hand, you are too scared to leave your comfort zone, to venture on what is not under your control. The good news is, life is not all about certainties, and it is “a daring adventure or nothing”.
Add Inspiration To Every Moment
Stay Focused with a reminder on your wrist.
What you can do simply, slowly
If you want to make a change in your life, relax and do not rush things. It takes time, and you are going to enjoy the experience of growing, of getting to know yourself more. Spend the coming days writing about your dreams on a piece of paper. Write down ways on how to make each dream happen.
This is a great way to affirm your faith, to wish out loud that these dreams will lead you to the life you want to live. Another simple habit you can try to grow inside you is conditioning your mind that there is nothing to fear.
Each day, the moment you wake up, tell yourself that it’s a wonderful day and it’s most lived when you drop off your fear. Each day will be more empowering for you. Stay inspired by feeding your heart with stories, encouragement, motivators in the form of art, literature, features, and friends – this an amazing way to feel stronger, to feel more connected with what you really want to live for.
Slowly, you’d discover that your life is not about making money alone. Slowly, you’ll also realize that people are busy following their dreams, living their lives…and so they don’t really spend aimless hours watching over you and your next move toward happiness.
You are the designer of your life path
Look at you, you have so much to offer. Your beauty illuminates when you follow a piece of your dream each day. When you stay in one corner of the world, crying over the past and being scared about the future, there is nowhere to go anymore. Let your own dreams, your own capabilities be the wings that can help you flap.
Instead of sculpting your spirit with fear, shape it with courage, inspiration, and freedom. These three will show you that wonderful space under the sun, in a wilderness of possibilities and success stories. You’ve already gone a long way being able to find this piece of writing her. This simple shows that you are trying to connect to beautiful things that can fuel your heart.
Remember that you can’t live more than 150 years. Each year is a milestone. Do you want to boost your skills? Do you want to learn more? Do you want to touch lives and be touched by others? If and only if you design your life path in the direction of your own joys and fulfillment, it will be an enjoyable flow.
Life is a flow, don’t go against it
Where you are right now is the result of the many decisions and dares that you have done. Let be enlightened that life is a flow. If your heart speaks of a voice that longs for adventure, go for it. You can’t just spend the rest of your life being stuck in a chair and in a job you hate if you know deeply within that you are made for something else.
When you feel fear, let it be felt. But, breathe in really well and remind yourself that it is just your anxious mind that tells you to shiver. Close your eyes every time the fear keeps on knocking and then listen, do listen to your heart. For the blood that flows inside you represent the energy that goes around your life, a representation that with faith, you are on the right path.
