We all deal with fear in our lives. As I have stated before, with change comes challenge, and ever so often fear comes with it. The real challenge though is how we direct this "fear" into something positive; something to get hungry about, something to hope about, better yet, something to work towards (with true effort).
We talked before about building belief with effort. The quick message today is about curing fear with action (they are similar). Action cures fear through exposure therapy (confronting your fears over and over again). You earn your newfound confidence through the constant reinforcement of positive, life-changing actions. Remember the goal setting process? Read more on goal setting.
The work will ALWAYS teach you just how to do it. We say ready, fire, aim. In other words, start somewhere and start today tackling your fears. Channel those fears through work and true effort. The other side awaits you.
Remember this always...
There is no short cut to being fit. Fitness can neither be achieved by wishful thinking nor outright purchase (Joseph Pilates).
When you put the true effort in...
your beliefs change,
your fear dissipates,
your confidence grows;
and so does your hope for a better tomorrow.
The hurt is worth it. Trust me.
Are you hungry for change?
You have to get hungry.
We ALL have to take the jump.
Take the jump.
