#Trust30 Day 29: Fading Fear

June 28th, 2011

Today’s Prompt:

Overcoming Uncertainty by Sean Ogle

Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Write down a major life goal you have yet to achieve or even begin to take action on. For each goal, write down three uncertainties (read: fears) you have relating to each goal. Break it down further, and write down three reasons for each uncertainty. When you have three reasons for your fear, you’ll be able to start processing the change because you know where the fear stems from. Now you’ll be able to make a smaller changes that push you towards your larger goal. So begins the process of “trusting yourself.”

My major goal is a bit wide, but fear is an ever-present companion. I simply want to have an effect and there are lots of areas and ways I can have that effect. My biggest fear is leaving the planet before I can accomplish it. As I grow older the fears about being accepted, being liked and being right, slip away. I become more honest with both myself and others. I become more active — doing as much as thinking and creating.

Fear still rides with me every day, but I try to pay it less attention every day. Sometimes I hear it babbling more than others, but each day it fades a bit more. Maybe that is the way that life is supposed to work.
