Imagine If You Just Faced Your Fears and Took Action Anyway

The moment you’ve been waiting for has arrived…

The one your heart is calling you to step up to…

You’re excited and your heart is pounding…

You want this SO BAD but it involves putting yourself on the line…

There’s risk involved…

You’re facing down the barrel of possible embarrassment…

You want this so bad but your fears have you frozen on the spot and you’re so nervous you feel sick to the stomach…

What do you do?

Do you give in to your fears and let the opportunity go or do you suck it up and take action anyway?

For the majority of people, giving in to their fears will be the option they’ll take…

Most people are happy to live their life in the comfort zone we’re taught is the ‘normal’ way to live…and honestly, that’s perfectly fine if that’s you and you’re happy with that…

But when you have a burning desire in your heart…

When you know you were born for bigger and better things…

When you’re simply drawn to live a different kinda life..

But your fears stop you dead in your tracks…

You’re frozen on the spot…

It’s like this gut wrenching game of tug-o-war that’s pulling between the safety of your comfort zone and the wilderness of your heart strings…

You want this opportunity so bad…but your fears have your palms sweating and the nausea brewing…

It could be that you want to talk to someone…

Maybe you dream of being on stage…as an actor…as a singer…as a musician…comedian…

Maybe you have a message to share which would mean speaking in public, online and on video…

Regardless of what your dreams are, when your fears are overwhelming you to the point of where the idea of pushing through and taking action anyway is almost breaking you in two…something needs to be done…

You need to get to the bottom of why you feel this way and do the inner work so that you can tame your fears and learn how to take action anyway.

Fear is normal. Fear is healthy. It’s there to protect you, but when it’s stopping you from moving forward in your life and living the life your heart is calling you to live, something needs to be done…

I entered a talent quest back in the 90s. I was in my early 20s and for as long as I can remember, I loved music and saw myself (in my mind) onstage as a singer. It didn’t matter that I was too scared to speak in front of anyone let alone get up and sing in front of anyone, but that’s what was in my heart and that feeling flooded my body every waking moment.

I had learned dancing and I did modelling growing up, so being on stage wasn’t an issue for me, but the microphone was. It was where my fear became overwhelming and it was the only thing standing between me and my dream.

I did eventually overcome my fear of singing and speaking in public and now it was time to take the plunge to perform with a band. I organised my music charts, I practiced and I rehearsed with two dancers. I was ready to take the world by storm…

It all started well until half way through the song when I had a mental blank and I completely forgot the words to the song…

A song I had been singing for the past few years and knew every word to…

And yet, here I was, dancing around on stage completely floundering.

MY WORST NIGHTMARE HAD COME TRUE!!

I was SO embarrassed! I just wanted to shrink away into a big hole, never to be seen again.

But, you know what…I survived…and when I looked back on the experience, there was a HUGE, MASSIVE GIFT WITH A BIG FAT, BRIGHT RED BOW tied around it in it for me.

I decided I would find a way to remember the lyrics to songs…and yes, I did find a way and I can tell you it’s EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE.

I also realised that if I could do that and survive that I was capable of so much more and it’s because of experiences like that that I can confidently stand on stage today and hold my own.

If you continue to stay in your comfort zone when your heart is dragging you along the ground, kicking and screaming to pursue a passion, you will have regret when you get to the end of your life.

You won’t regret the things you did do…you’ll regret the things you didn’t do…

And you know what? Doing those things that scare you will make you feel more alive than anything else on the planet.

I know what it’s like to have that burning desire in your heart that’s flooding your body and is one step away from pushing you into taking a leap of faith into the unknown…the risk pool of judgement and embarrassment…

But what sets me apart from most is that I know how to push through my fears and take action anyway…

I learned a long time ago that we actually judge ourselves more than anyone else possibly could and most people aren’t even thinking about you or what you think they’re thinking about…

They’ve got enough going on in their life than to be worried about what you’re doing…

Here’s the thing…you’re no different to me…

If you have a burning passion in your heart that’s causing you to die just a little inside each day because you’re not pursuing it because FEAR is holding you back, the only thing that separates you from me is that I stood up and took the action anyway…

And it’s possible for you to learn how to do it, too.

I’m thankful every single day for the person I’ve become because I faced up to my fears and took action anyway…and now I want that for you.

I don’t want you to get to the end of your life and have regrets…

I want you to come sliding in sideways to home base screaming, ‘Well, that was one hell of a ride!’

I want you to experience the thrill that comes with putting yourself on the line and pushing through anyway…

Seriously! The adrenaline rush is worth every second!
