I decided to write this because I am embarking on a challenging journey. I was asked to write what success looks like for me. This exercise was supposed to help me develop a plan of action to make it a reality. Something is keeping me from stepping into my successful life. What is it?
It is fear, as you will also learn about me fear has always been present in my life. In my earlier years fear immobilized me and kept me from pursuing things that were dear to my heart. One of biggest fears was the fear of success. But I have overcome so many of my fears. So why is it an issue now? It may be because there is so much at stake right now. As a professional life coach I encourage my clients to move past their fears to meet their goals. So there is much at stake here. I don’t believe in just telling people how to do things, I like to share by experience.
This journey is about my life, about realizing some longtime dreams and finally living the life I was destined to live. It means leaving so much and so many behind. It means walking into things I am not used to. That is what the fear is about, fear of the unknown. But my greatest fear is not taking the steps because then I will be stuck. Stuck in an existence that is not fulfilling.
So I decided to take you on my journey. This new journey is not predefined, not scripted, and definitely not Memorex. I will write a blog post each day of this forty-day journey. I really don’t know what each day will bring. But I am excited and ready to take on this challenge. This will also commit me to writing everyday, which will help me become a more disciplined writer.
So join me on my forty day journey to success.
