Have you ever felt that when you started working towards a goal, there would be a huge chance that it wouldn’t work out?
I think we’ve all made that assumption at least a few times in our lives.
Some of the goals we work towards are so small, that we don’t even notice the effort we put into it and the thought of giving up hardly ever shows up. But for the big goals we start working towards, we definitely notice because it takes much more effort and the thoughts of giving up hover over us like one big knat.
Right now, I’m on this big things, big effort, don’t give up boat. I’ve decided to work towards a few goals that I didn’t just want, but really REALLY want. And in order for me to get them, I had to take that initial step and make big changes. Then I had to get real comfortable with feeling uncomfortable.
Feeling uncomfortable is normal. They’re just assumptions our mind automatically comes up with to keep us in our comfort zone, as a form of survival. It’s called fear.
It’s good to have some kind of fear. The kind that prevents us from touching a hot stove. We know exactly what’s going to happen if we decide to touch it. But the fear that causes us to stay away from the goals we strive to achieve is dangerous when we have no idea what’s going to happen.
It deprives us from living the awesome life we want all because we fear the things that we are never certain will happen. We end up giving up and settling into mediocrity all because we refuse to face the many illusions of fear when they show up.
So, if you really want something in life, go get it! Don’t give up if you know it’s something you really, REALLY want, regardless of all the false assumptions your mind wants to come up with. Cheers!
