What If?

After thinking about my life this morning, I had a random, but important thought. About fear. You know—I realized that when I procrastinate about moving towards my dreams, I don’t ever really ask myself the question: What if I fail?

Pondering


Well, maybe—when I have to take a test or something—but I mean when it comes to taking chances and just going for a goal, or a dream. If I want something bad enough I’m never afraid of failure. When I started my business, I was renting a room in Arizona for $300 a month, sleeping on a blow-up bed, and had no car—so failure was the farthest thing from my mind! Maybe that’s the beauty of “nothing left to lose“.

The point here is that I wasn’t afraid of failing—and I gave it my all; without hesitation. What occurred to me today is that, when hesitating about moving forward, my biggest fear is actually…

What if I succeed???

Coming from someone who spent a good part of her life self-sabotaging, I think this makes total sense and I’m not sure why I didn’t realize that sooner. So… now that I’ve figured THAT out, it’s time to see about fixing the problem.

More to ponder.

Peace and Love!!

  1. Wauw. Deep thoughts! But realisation of ones fears are such an eye opener. One can only conquer their fears if they are known to one. You will find a way. You have a new ‘weapon’ in your life = prayer. This has gotten me wondering what my fears are….. Now we ponder together, Janet.

  2. Definitely, a great fear of mine, and have heard a talk that this is shamed based fear. I would then have to keep it up and do I really deserve that? it goes on and on. Thank you for reminding me, damn it lol.
