What are U afraid of?
Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.- Les Brown
I hope that you have a safe time tonight if you celebrate this holiday. I plan on staying in the house and giving away candy to the kids in the neighborhood. I have not been home on Halloween in years! It’s going to be fun! I’m sure the kids will SCARE me tonight.
Recently, I received words of wisdom from a teacher named Dallas Travers who told me fear and excitement are chemically the same. I had to take that in. “Fear and excitement are chemically the same…” They feel the same way in the body. What I received out of that was I can tell myself, when I get fearful, that it is not fear I am feeling but it’s EXCITEMENT.
I tested that theory when I went to 6 flags and was about to get on a big roller coaster. A BIG roller coaster. The BIG roller coaster I did not want to get on! But, I didn’t want to look like a SCAREDY-CAT to my friends. How did my theory pan out? It worked! I really enjoyed myself on all the roller coasters. I tried the theory out again when I had an audition the following week, it worked again! Could this be real?
My challenge for you in November, as you are face with fear in your life and career, that you tell yourself “this is not fear this is EXCITEMENT.
