Do you often take the easy way out and focus on little things that are really not important and won’t amount to anything? Do you put the “big stuff” on the back-burner because you are not sure if you can handle it?
How not to do that, take a look.
1. Face the fear and do it anyway.
They will always be fear in tackling something new and unknown. Accept that you will have it and look at fear as part of your growth process.
2. What could you be avoiding by “playing small?”
Would you lose some “friends” out of jealousy if you starting to really go for what you want? Would some people not approve of you? (They are probably jealous because they won’t or can’t take action in the way you are now).
3. What does living “bigger” mean anyway?
Do you think that you will need to be a “superhero” type if you start taking on more and more responsibility? Even if you step out in a new way, are more visible to people and are asked to do more things, you can always say NO. (Yes, this may feel uncomfortable at first, but you’d be surprised with practice it does get easier.)
4. It’s time to put your “big girl” shoes on.
This world is in a turbulent place, and each and every one of us is being called to step out in a new way.
5. You were born to do it.
Each of us has a destiny to fulfill. If you don’t know yours, time to find out. If you do, time to take action.
