I think I have figured it out. The reason I haven’t taken risks is the fear of failure. Everyone has read this concept before, but for me, I would rather live in denial than face my fears. Of course it’s hard to face your fears. It’s uncomfortable. It’s usually easier to just live in denial to tell you the truth. Don’t take the easy way out. I’m in the process of learning to face every one of my fears. There’s some that I’ve been able to face in the past, but now it’s time to face all of them.
Lately I’ve had to take risks just to know what the outcomes would be, even if I end up not succeeding. I have to know what the outcome is, so I don’t have to ask myself twenty years from now if I would’ve made it. Of course this is what conquering your fears brings…RISK.
I am learning to enjoy the risk because the process is what makes us all better.
What is your biggest fear?
