Refuse to Give in to Fear

A person's eye, filled with fear, peeking out of a keyhole.

In my lifetime, I have been fearful of many things:

  • Change of any type
  • Storms
  • Running out of gas
  • The decisions that will affect my future/maybe!
  • Not making a decision
  • A thousand times with my kids
  • Losing a job
  • Health of a loved one
  • Moving
  • Business issues
  • Having to say goodbye to our beloved pets – on and on and on.

This article is all about overcoming fear. It is about having the courage to see that the answer lies in the future and to deal with the results. We all know people who have literally become paralyzed by fear. Truly we must always maintain a positive forward-looking attitude. I know it’s difficult to remember that “when you came to drain the swamp and now you’re up to your ass in alligators”.

The part I especially like is the about choosing courage/success over mediocrity/failure. It’s not that we can’t go through the trials and tribulations of our life. It’s how quickly we can rebound from those trials and start fulfilling our purpose. It’s not easy, it’s not easy!

So, refuse to give in. Look carefully at your options and then proceed. The good news is that we are choosing to face them and not ignore them. Because guess what, they will come back and come back and come back again until we choose to fix them. So, you can face them with zeal and steel as opposed to weakness and surrender. As the article asks “what lies behind the big black door?” And, according to the article “freedom.” That’s what is truly behind the big black door.

The good news is we’re all still here to read this and internalize what it says. And, we have all overcome circumstances great and small. This is great information!

How many times will you and or your children face the challenges of a big black door? We must choose to stay behind it or walk on through it to freedom.

Life is all about change, and it’s all about making it through those changes. They are NOT easy but they are necessary. CHOOSE FREEDOM

Happy and healthy new year to all of you.
