“One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn’t do.” – Henry Ford
Two parts of life that can be negatively affected by fear, more than it should be, is our relationships and our purpose.
Fear rules our relationships and often prevents them from flourishing. We let that happen by being afraid to:
- Ask that person out
- Tell your spouse the truth
- Forgive that family member who wronged you
Fear limits our purpose by telling us:
- We are not smart enough
- We are not educated enough
- We are not good enough
Let’s stop doing this to ourselves. Let’s realize we are all of the things we think we aren’t.
Take the leap, do the scary work, ask that person out!
Facing fear is worth it. It teaches us things about ourselves and we also learn that fear is a liar!
