Video: How to overcome your fears and follow your dreams
Have you got a big idea, a grand vision or a passion that you are desperate to pursue or share with the world?
Chances are, on the other side of that thing that's calling your soul is that dreaded four letter word - fear. (And a whole lot of it!)
The more we follow our heart, the more we will be called to show up and be who we truly are. The more we will need to trust ourselves and follow our gut. The more we will feel vulnerable. The more fear will rear it's head.
In today's video, I'm sharing the most common fears I hear from my big-dreaming clients - and how we can overcome these fears and start making those dreams into reality...
Let's break it down shall we:
If you're paralyzed by comparison to people who are ahead of you and your inner critic is overwhelming you with the idea that you need to go from zero to 100 in a giant leap...
Break your dream or idea down into small manageable steps that you can work towards each day. Something I didn't mention in the video is the importance of celebrating these small steps by making time each day or week to reflect on what you've done that moved you towards where you want to be.
If you're frozen in perfectionism and your inner critic is telling you that you can't launch your blog or share your idea until it's 'perfect'...
Remember that this 'perfect' is only a creation of your inner critic - it doesn't actually exist. Nobody feels that their biz, blog, or creative endeavors are perfect, and frankly, it's not the point. The motto 'done is better than perfect' will get you moving speedily towards your dreams.
The overarching message here is JUST START. The road to success and the life of your dreams can only be travelled one step at a time - not by sitting at the starting point and agonizing over the map or getting down because some people left before us.
Trust what your soul is craving, let your 'why' be your driving force, and start where you are.
