Fear is future-oriented.
It’s imagining what could go wrong but hasn’t gone wrong yet. Fear is hiding under self-judgment, comparison and envy. Fear holds you in a pattern of self-doubt.
Fear is running a mental movie of the worst-case scenario repeatedly in your mind.
What kind of movie do you play? Is it a horror movie? A comedy? Or is it a success story? A love story? A drama?
Remember, you are the inventor. You invent your future with the choices you make today. Your choices create your tomorrows.
How would you feel today if you knew the best was yet to come? How would that influence your actions?
How to build an extraordinary future:
1. Choose to spiral upward.
Own your strengths, gifts and unique talents. Acknowledge all that you have to offer the world. Know that you are wiser than you think you are. You are unlimited. Speak and act your way into greatness.
2. Witness your fear.
Write your fears down in a journal. What are your fears trying to tell you? Hear them out. Lean into your fear and breathe. Fear will soon fade.
3. Take five swings.
In order to get something new, you must fundamentally change how you think, feel and act.
Take small action steps daily towards your dreams. Ron Scolastico says, “If you would go every day to a very large tree and take five swings at it with a very sharp ax, eventually, no matter how large the tree, it would have to come down.”
What five swings are you willing to take today?
4. Know the cost of fear.
Fear causes stress that affects our health, our decision-making process and our freedom. It’s just as easy to focus on a positive outcome as it is a negative one.
We can choose to learn from suffering and pain, or joy and inspiration. Which outcome are you unwaveringly committed to?
5. Invest in your faith.
The same force that holds the stars in the sky and turns an acorn into an oak tree is at work beyond what you can comprehend.
Believe that the Universe has your back. Believe that everything will work out as it should. Put your energy in your faith. Release all worry.
6. Crave life. You have to live life to the end. Feel the world. Explore. Be with people. Do the unusual. Take the crooked path. Take things too far. Because it’s possible, right?
Believe in a future you can’t experience with your senses. Have faith in a future you cannot see. There is immense power in this.
7. Today is your beginning point. Make every day new. When you choose to live life in the present and confront and overcome your fear, life is exciting, you feel empowered and you fill your life with curiosity and wonder.
