We all have fears. But we must all have FAITH in ourselves to overcome those fears. Some believe that F.E.A.R. is an acronym for for F.alse E.vidence A.ppearing R.eal. In my opinion, this is true in most cases; especially when it comes to reaching for your goals, dreams and aspirations. Do not allow others to USE your fears against you. If you have a plan, don’t allow others to derail you. Stay the course!
Many people, some who are nearest and dearest to my heart, have said things to me that have caused self-doubt because I allowed it to penetrate my faith. And because of this, I come to the conclusion it is human nature to doubt the goals of others when you yourself have never taken a chance or pursued a passion. I’m not saying this to belittle the sacrifices that we all must make while surviving day-to-day in this society. I’ve done it for many years; surviving, paying bills, putting my passions on the back-burner and not cultivating my God-given gifts/talents. It is fine to play in safe if that’s the way you want to live but it also doesn’t mean that you should belittle the aspirations of others in the process.
The world is yours if you believe in yourself. So, stretch out your hands in the direction of your goals with FAITH, grab your DREAMS and make them REALITY.
