Fear is a four-letter word. It is so small yet the impact it has on our life is so big. I mean shouldn’t it be like a 100 letter word? It shuts down dreams and boards up doors. It lets vegetation grow over paths that were meant to be traveled. It has power… Or does it? Or is it us that gives it power? I mean has fear actually physically made you stop going after your dreams? Has it put its hands on you and held you back physically? Does fear have hands? Or have we just given it so much power that this four-letter word seems to be the tallest biggest entity we have ever seen?
What would happen if we stared this word in the face and said, ” Look here fear, you are only four letters and you can’t physically touch me, so I will not let you have the power that I have given you in the past! I will take back my power and keep putting one foot in front of the other to walk on past you. I will slowly and steadily move with intention and keep living in action. I will slowly take back the power I have given you and use it to keep walking in the scary times. I will use my power to stare you in the face. It doesn’t mean I won’t be scared, but you won’t physically stop me anymore. I will walk through your invisible presence and I WILL do what I need to do and I will do it scared if I have to!”
What if we could do this?
Wait… You know what? I know we can do this!!
