Fear Not Needed

On your way to your future wholeheartedly?  If not, what's stopping you?  Most will tell you what will happen if.....or, I stopped because.....
Fear is the main reason people do not move forward to their destiny wholeheartedly.  There are so many definitions I could name for fear, however, I choose to talk about an acronym I learned about fear.


Most people would use a story about being afraid of the dark here, so I'll try a different spin.  As a child, we generally learn how to become afraid of things.  For instance, I remember when I was really young, my Auntie was attempting to teach me to swim in the pool at her complex.  We had been doing it for a while.  My mother happened to be present one day with my new sister.  My Aunt preceded with her lesson for the day.  It was one we had been working on for a few days; holding my breathe under water.  My mother happened to turn around (from attending my baby sister) the very moment my Aunt pushed my head under the water for a few seconds and went berserk.  She insisted my Aunt to bring me out of the water.  I wasn't aware of any danger.  My Aunt had never exhibited any while teaching me so I was unaware there was anything to fear.  From that moment on, I always had second thoughts about getting into the water to swim.  At the time, because of my age, I wasn't aware of which reality to believe; my mother's or my Aunt's.  I suppose because I was around my mother mostly, her reality of being under water was most influential.
Now that I'm older, I don't give second thought of being under water in the pool.  I still have yet to learn how to swim, but I sure enjoy being in the water.  I get in every chance I get.  My friends are instructing me how to float.   This year, they are going to teach me how to do things under water.  I CAN HARDLY WAIT!!!  
I'll be sure to post pictures when I do this summer.

So what does any of this has to do with moving into your destiny wholeheartedly?  As I was learning to swim as a child, I had nothing to fear.  Even when my mother went berserk, I had nothing to fear.  As an adult, I still have nothing to fear.  What was my mother's reality was not mine.  It was her reality that entered my fantasy attempting to become my reality.  This false evidence appearing real only delayed me for a while.  It prevented me from experiencing years of being an excellent swimmer.  Realizing it was never my reality, I chose to get back into the pool and learn how to swim as an adult.
Ask yourself questions about what caused you to slow down, stop, or change directions when you were on the road to fulfilling your destiny.

Did you continue to stay off course?  Have you made a decision to get back on track?  Is there anything or anyone you are holding on to that will not allow you to fulfill your destiny?  Think about it and share with us.

Let's move forward together.

Much love,
