Just 3 months ago I decided to leave a very big part of my life …
my “Big Girl” day job.
I’d been working there for 14 years, I started when I was 19 – I was just a baby! I worked hard over the course of a little over a year to take a leap of faith and be able to have Fitness as my “Full Time Job” and posted about that HERE.
I’m not going to lie to you and tell you it’s been all rainbows and butterflies since I came home – I am definitely the “worrying type” and have had my moments where I began to doubt myself…
I began to wonder if I made the right decision….
If I would be okay doing what I was doing and being self-employed….
I started to realize that FEAR was holding me back from what I was truly called to do – my reason for being here in the first place!
Have you ever really taken the time to see what the word: FEAR stands for?
Many of us have the habit of NOT doing things because they scare us. Most times, nothing bad has happened, but it’s the FEAR of what COULD happen that stops us dead in our tracks.
“I can’t leave my day job because I have bills to pay – it’s what I HAVE TO DO …”
“I can’t start that workout program because it looks way too hard, I could never do that…”
“Why even start to save up for that vacation, the money will have to be used for something else anyway – always does..”
I’ve had to take moments to CATCH MYSELF and realize that I was creating my own negative perceptions of what I was afraid of. I had nothing to be afraid of other than things I created in my own head.
If I continue to stick to my focus word for 2015 and help others, success will come as a direct result. If I wasn’t meant to be doing what I was doing, I wouldn’t be in the situation I am in now. I HAVE TO REMEMBER MY PURPOSE.
