Decide Where You Are Going

"All you have to do is know where you're going. The answers will come to you of their own accord." ~ Earl Nightingale

One of the things that stop us dead in our tracks is fear. Now, fear comes as a precaution to keep you safe and comfortable. When you are planning something completely out of your comfort zone, then fear will rise up to protect you. This is normal. But what you want to then do is take the leap and do the uncomfortable. If you allow your fears to paralyze you, then fear has conquered you instead of you conquering your fear.

One of the reasons fear creeps up is because we do not take the time to decide what it is we truly want to be, and to do, and to have. As the late Earl Nightingale says all we need to do is to know where we are going. Once we have the map, then the directions will become clear.

What do I want to be and to do and to have?

Once you receive the answers, then make the decision to take the actions necessary to make it a reality. Don’t worry about how it’s going to happen, or how you are going to pay for it, or how it will all work out. The “how” is none of your business. Once you make the decision, the how will be taken care of.

Just for today, decide to face your fear and live your true life.
