Fear shows me what I care about.
The gift of fear is that it shows me what I truly care about.
Fear tends to increase in direct proportion to how important something is to you.
In a conversation with Oprah, Steven Pressfield said: "The more important an activity is to your soul's evolution, the more resistance you will feel to it. The more fear you will feel." So thank your fear and your resistance for showing up and reminding you how important this dream is to you. And then, in the words of Steven Pressfield, "put your ass where your heart wants to be." Which is some of the most succinctly powerful advice I have ever heard. "Put Your Ass Where Your Heart Wants to Be" is Step 6 of Your Next Chapter Map which is a framework I use with clients to help them get from where they are now to where they want to be.
It is perhaps the most important step of all 😉
