Are you scared of yourself?

With the Boston Marathon bombing on Monday, I began to think of how fears can cripple us. How some may began to be afraid to race because of this act, like many were afraid to fly or travel into big cities after 9/11. The more I thought about this, the more I realized fears make us feel so powerless.  Seeing Darren Hardy‘s Daily Mojo from yesterday began to make me think how I’ve began facing my own fears the last couple of years.

“Daily Mojo: To be scared is to give up your power. DO what scares you and you gain it back.” – Darren Hardy.

While trying to make a list of my fears and why I felt that way, they all pointed to one fear. The fear of how awesome I truly I could be. I was afraid that I’d make other people uncomfortable if I stepped into my fullest potential. Am I there? No, but I am working hard to be the best leader, inspiration, supporter, friend, mother, you name it, that I KNOW I can be.

I used to feel powerless, but all that changed when I made that one decision for myself and said “enough was enough, it’s time for me.” Is it time for you to make a decision for yourself? Are you afraid of being that totally awesome person that you were meant to be? Take a step and decide that it’s time for you. If you need someone to bounce ideas or to talk to, please do not hesitate to drop me an email or find me on Facebook.

    Great blog post about challenging and overcoming your fears. The Boston Marathon tragedy really made me think about my life and how precious it is and I don’t want to live another day, not living and operating in my potential. I have been thinking all of the things that I want to accomplish personally, professionally and physically (ironically, running a marathon is on that list). What fears do you have that are keeping you back?
