“Letting go of FEAR”
CONFESSION: I have not worked on my recipe book in months!!!!
Why you might ask….The simple answer is FEAR!
Here’s the thing, I get on a roll, gain momentum and then things come to a screeching hault! Right around the time my brain catches up and starts realizing that all the work I’ve been putting in is going to be put out there for everyone to see. EEK! SOOOO SCARY!!!
Over the Winter I was very diligent with writing. 5:00am EVERYDAY, I shot outta bed, went straight to the computer and WROTE! I got so much accomplished and minus quite a few edits my recipe book is just about complete.
And honestly, that SCARES THE HELL OUTTA ME. Why? Because what if it’s not good enough? What if people don’t like it? What if it’s crap? What if people don’t agree with what I have to say? What if people don’t like my recipes?
This whirlwind of doubt just kept spiralling and spiralling around in my head so I stopped writing.
I didn’t realize it at the time but now I can see it plain as day. All these feelings of self-doubt are rooted in fear.
We talk a lot about fear at True Form because we truly believe that fear holds us back from so many things. Fear holds us back from achieving our goals. Fear holds us back from our dreams.
Letting go of fear isn’t easy and I am no expert at it. I wish I had a 5 step program on how to let go of fear that I could share with all of you but the truth is, I am still learning.
The only thing I know is that storing my book in my files on my computer isn’t helping anyone!
It’s not helping me reach my goal of helping others and it’s not allowing me let go of fear.
The only thing left to do is FINISH MY BOOK!!!
I have decided that I am not going to wake up at 5am anymore to write. NO! I am stepping up my game. I am going to wake up at 4am everyday until I hit PRINT and my book is DONE!!!
Sure some think it’s crazy to wake up at 4am but this is my to commitment to YOU!!! (and to myself)
It’s time to make it happen and as I’ve learnt through my years of entrepreneurship….
“If you want something you’ve never had you must be willing to do something you’ve never done”.
