Day 42: The Other Side Of Fear

It won’t get any easier, it really won’t. So knowing this, just get on with the ordeal. This is one of my personal mantras when I am afraid of facing something and it works like magic. Ask yourself this;

Where you are now, is it all that great? If not, then don’t you want to know what’s on the other side of your fear?

Well I do, and that is basically why I keep pushing. I want to know, I want to discover, I want to be more than what I am now. Don’t you? I bet you do. So don’t sit around waiting for things to get easier, or for the perfect time to pursue your dream because that will never happen! Just take off. The perfect time is right now. Right where you are!

I used to be so envious of those go getters daring enough to keep going for what they want regardless of the circumstances. I will always find myself wishing I was bolder, more daring, braver, and so on. Until I went through a very difficult time in my life and right after I pulled through that period, to my surprise I had people coming to me to confess how inspired they were watching my courage and strength – characteristics I would never have associated with myself at that time, or anytime for that matter.

So I got to the other side – the side of the victor, in-spite of how terrified I was and I realized that all those I envied before were the same. They could have been terrified or unsure of themselves but they simply kept pushing through all that to get to the other side. And what we see when we look at them is ‘The Victor’. Not the journey. Never ever their struggles or their fears. To achieve anything in this life, we must get past the fear standing between us and our desire and only then can we come up victorious. We must want more than anything to know what is on the other side of our fears.
