“No More Fear”
For the longest time, I felt as if I was not good enough to be in certain situations I found myself in. Sometimes I have to sit back and take it all in and even question it, but I feel that is the very thing that is not allowing me to progress like I know that I can. It is “fear.”
Growing up here in Georgia I had the world in the palm of my hands, but I feel as if I figured that out too late it seems. (Or maybe I am just overthinking again whitch I tend to do more than I should) I remember growing up, and my mom would always tell me, “Boy, you are destined for greatness, remember that!” I can hear my mother’s voice now, and that saying would always stick with me through my darkest of days and even today she tells me that.
Perhaps all this self-doubt and worry is just fear trying to creep in and throw me off my game and, to be honest; I’ve been fearful all my life. I feared to succeed and feared failure. Its as if I could never shake it until one day something happened that the world changes my outlook on life forever. I use to think these sort of things only happened in movies but no it’s real. An incident this past year showed me that nothing is guaranteed and that every opportunity God has presented to you is for you! From then I on, I began to cast out my notion of fear and decided not to be a slave for fear but to use it as a source of motivation. For instance, whenever my conscious makes me nervous about going all in on something that may seem fearful as first sight, I try to block it out as best I can and just go for it!
In 2016, I have decided to take control over my life and not let fear dictate my every action and decision. By holding myself accountable for my thoughts and actions, I plan to on moving forward in my life, without the doubt, worry or fear! I’ve become fed up with just settling and want to excel like I know I can and that only way I can do that is to have no more fear.
