The truth about being fearless is that it is less about not feeling the fear and more about not letting the fear stop you.
We all experience levels of fear because fear is a primal human experience. It teaches us, protects us and sometimes saves us. The goal is to not let it paralyze.
Our lives are filled with options and it’s easy to get marred down by indecision. I’m a big believer in weighting out the pros and cons. But it’s always with the intention of action. Of doing something. Even the wrong decision can create major gains because the very act of doing something instils confidence and physics dictates that an object in motion tends to stay in motion.
We all get stuck from time to time. The minute we dig in to it we often find an underlining fear. Almost as if we were conditioned to respond a certain way and to a certain point we have. Whether by our peers, our family, our friends, the media we digest… everything is conditioning our responses. So how do we stop the insanity and listen to ourselves in this very loud world?
I mediate and I read.
I just finished the book Wild, by Cheryl Strayed. I wanted to read it before I saw the movie. I had no idea how profound it would be, how it would resonate with my soul. Cheryl’s journey is not one I have any desire to take, and yet it is one we all seem to take at one point or another. This moment when we decide to follow through regardless of how prepared we are. To face the challenges head on and persevere. To embrace our fear and carry on.
But the part that really hit home was the collecting of the story it self. The journals and pictures that would document her journey. If Cheryl had never published she would have her story. Continue to collect your story. Create your memories of this journey toward your goal.
