images… but you were always meant to soar.

Fear is a powerful emotion that comes on to protect you from a perceived harm. Fear keeps you “safely” out of situations and keeps you in your nest. But you do not grow in your nest. You only grow from learning what it feels like to fall out of your nest and learn to take flight on your own. You expand your horizons and go to new places and create new nests – this the game of life.

It is important to keep tabs on fear or it has the ability to take over our lives. Often times, fear manifests as anxiety and panic attacks. When you feel anxiety and panic, it’s the body’s way of trying to protect you from a situation or a person you deem harmful. Fear is also your indicator that you are dealing with a life lesson. Anxiety and panic are nothing more than a trigger for you to realize that the discomfort you are feeling is because you are dancing face to face with one of your life lessons – and that is NEVER easy. Here is where the work begins.

Fear would have you run from your life lesson and never learn it – maybe take a pill to quiet the trigger and numb the reminder that you have work to do. You can only do that for so long, your lessons always come back with a vengeance. The work is in recognizing where your patterns are and shedding light on them. Once you realize where the anxiety is coming from, you can begin to heal the experience and apply wisdom to help you move forward in your life.

The answer is always to move through the fear so you can transform it. If you find yourself avoiding situations so to not experience the discomfort of fear, then you are hiding in your nest. You can spend a lifetime in your nest. Ask yourself if you really want to do that? When there is a whole world out there for you to see and you have a beautiful set of wings, it might be time to spread them and take flight. Taking flight is the only thing that will transform your fear.

Time to leap out of that nest. If you allow yourself to stay there, fear will certainly clip your wings and you will never learn to fly. What options do you really have?

Unknown… is a game changer.

And who doesn’t want to change the rules of the game in their favor?

Believing in yourself is the ultimate secret to success in life. The problem is that many of us do not believe in ourselves. In life, those who are the most intelligent and most gifted are usually the ones who doubt themselves the most. They know too much and therefore realize that there is so much more that they still do not know and because of that they are the first to undermine themselves and feel inadequate and unable to compete.

On the other hand, ignorance is always bliss. Those who do not know as much, are usually the ones that blindly charge into opportunities because they have no fear of not knowing enough. They do not know any better so they always go for it. They believe in themselves simply because they do not overthink situations. Since they do not know that they do not know, they take more chances and put it out there more easily.

When you STOP judging yourself and stop applying negative energy such as doubt and fear to situations, you will succeed. Don’t question your intention or your ability to do something, just do it. You are the only one standing in your way. If you are going to apply thought to situations, why not apply positive thinking to support where you want to go in life? As soon as negative thinking steps in, you hold yourself back.

Welcome to the game of life – believing in yourself is the game changer. Get with the program and learn the strategy. Choose NOT to believe in your limitations but believe in your dreams and they will always come true.

“… what are you waiting for.. It’s alright…’cause there’s beauty in the breakdown”  – “Frou Frou”

There is absolutely beauty in the breakdown, if we can just let go of our guards and let go of fear. What is it that you are most afraid of? Out of fear, most people strangle-hold situations and other people in their lives. Living your life in a state of fear is akin to living your life in a safe, gray box. No risk, no gain – NO LIFE. Your life only gets better when you take chances and improve upon your circumstances. Staying still collects dust. Moving anywhere implies altering your connection to the universe and invites opportunities to grow.

Often times our fears get the best of us and we stay locked into positions that feel “safe” but not happy. We generally fear taking chances and getting out of our boxes… What if we lose? What if we are not as good as we think we are? What if we don’t think we have any talent at all? Who will be there to catch us if we fall? Who will be there to help us pick up the pieces?

Well, if the pieces of your life fall apart, it is a blessing. It means the paradigm you have created for yourself wasn’t working efficiently. Now you get the opportunity to put those pieces back together into an even better configuration the next time around. Many of us need to smash the structures we have confined ourselves to so we can learn to breathe life into our experiences again. There is beauty in the breakdown. Do not fear it. Let go, jump in and enjoy the experience of being free, and starting something new. You can never lose by moving forward in life (in any direction) but you will always stay stuck sitting still.
