What do you think is the biggest thing holding you back right now?
I asked myself this recently as I have been contemplating some pretty big decisions
Honestly, it was fear
Fear of failure, trouble, having things taken from me, lack, not being able to manage, making the wrong choice...
Being immersed in personal development and having a degree in psychology is like a blessing and a curse
Because I know where all these fears are coming from
Rather than walking you through all my past experiences, social & environmental constructs, & more
I’ll save you from that & narrow it down to one thing for you to apply to your own life as well
Usually this is the root / cause of much of our angst
When our identity is threatened or there is a proposed threat to it, we experience fear
Our identity is how we define ourselves
Usually if we have fear, it means it’s time for an Identity upgrade
We get the nudge to do something or go for something & our brain is like DANGER THAT IS SCARY & NOT SAFE AT ALL ARE YOU INSANE?!
This is only because it really is easier to preserve energy than spend it on growth
But overcoming fears & challenges have brought you to where you are, so it will likely continue to be that way
So why not run towards it to accelerate our growth?
Quickest way to get through all that fear & the stories you tell yourself is to put yourself in situations where no other version, except for the highest version of yourself can be demanded
Creating an identity that says;
I am capable
I’ve proved myself wrong before
I am ready & excited for the challenges
Is the kind of identity that embraces the fear as part of the growth & creates solutions
It also helps to have innate beliefs & personal ‘truths’ to empower you through tough times
For me, I asked myself “what’s the worst thing that could happen?” Which made me realize, hey that’s really not that bad
I also have beliefs in abundance, trusting the nudges, taking immediate action with great urgency, going all in for my mission which is everything...& so on
