Living life can be an amazing experience, if we just give ourselves the chance to take advantage of what it has to offer. We often have dreams unfulfilled, desires not granted or wants not realized, simply because we are too afraid to take the steps necessary to see those things to fruition. Our fear of what will be required of us and most of all our fear of failing and not achieving our goal, serves as a barrier between us and that which we want.
You often hear that nothing in life comes easy. To an extent that is true. Many times I have made the effort to conquer that fear only to have obstacles thrown in my way that make it even more difficult to get through that fear barrier. Sometimes they are natural occurrences, while sometimes I think they are tests to determine if that which I seek is truly deserved or if I am actually ready for what I am asking for. It is almost as if the thing I want is preceded by a test of my will and strength to determine whether or not I am even capable of handling that for which I am asking.
When the true problem arises is when we have tried and failed so many times that we let fear become the only reason that we no longer make the effort. We have been bitten so many times that we figure that it isn’t worth it any more because we believe our chance of success is so low, so why even try isn’t he first place? That is where we make our mistake. When we realize that those tests and failures are what builds the strength and courage to persevere, even in the face of adversity, it is only then that we have the tools that we need to conquer that fear and ultimately realize what we are seeking.
We are not always going to be successful and we are not always going to know the reason why we were not. The roadmap of life is full of twists and turns that often lead us down paths that we never imagined. Every one of those journeys become a stepping stone to building a stronger and more meaningful existence, if we only allow ourselves the will to overcome what may come our way and make that wall of fear less strong. Everything you’ve ever wanted is sitting on the other side of fear, so go for it!
Have a great day and remember to be the reason someone smiles.
