I want to share with you today a little concept called FEAR. We all know how powerful it is. And I want to give it to you in a scenario, so that it makes a little more sense to you.
Let’s say you decided that you’re around a bunch of leaders and they are pushing your limits. They decide to go out and do some skydiving. You know other people have done it, other people have been successful at it, and you also know that other people have died.
There’s always the fear of the unknown. There’s always the constant “What if, what if, what if …” And there’s always this group of people who share with you “What if it fails. What if you die. What if this happens.” But then “What if you don’t?”
Now what happens is this. You don’t ask the opinions of people who have never ever skydived. You never go out. You talk to people who have never done it. This is often what happens when anyone wants to try anything.
On the other side, once you talk to people who have parachuted or skydived and they go “It’s AWESOME! You got to do it. It’s safe. I’ve done this many times and I’ve never been hurt.” When you get information from people who’ve done what you want to do, you’re going to get a different thing.
I totally understand the concept of FEAR – “False Emotions Appearing Real” or “False Evidence Appearing Real”. We all know that it’s out there.
So you go through all the training and all the instruction. The people training you show you how to do it. You get into the airplane and the anxiety hits you. The door opens. The other people are more fearful as they try to back out.
And then once you jump, you have a completely awesome experience. But you can’t come from that place until you make “the jump.”Did This Help You? If so, I would greatly appreciate it if you commented below and shared on Facebook
