“Everything you’ve ever wanted is sitting on the other side of fear.”
— George Addair
Which side of fear are you on?
The first side of fear is your comfort zone.
So many people spend their lives living in fear because it makes them uncomfortable.
A person’s natural reaction to fear is to try to avoid it, but when fear holds you back from the life and relationships of your dreams, you have to confront it.
We get it. It’s so easy to stick with what you know and stay in your comfort zone. When you’re never challenged, life goes smoothly, but it won’t make you happy or feel fulfilled. In fact, it will do the opposite.
Living in fear leads to habits of people pleasing. You become so afraid of conflict that you’re willing to do whatever other people ask of you in the hopes of avoiding it. You never take risks to reach your goals because you’re too afraid of failure and what other people may think of you if you don’t succeed.
It may be hard to hear, but you will never be satisfied with your life if you continue to live in fear.
Read that again: you will never be satisfied with your life if you continue to live in fear.
How do you overcome fear? You face it head-on and get to the other side.
All it takes to overcome fear is a choice.
Okay, maybe it is a bit more complicated than that, but it all starts with a choice. When you choose yourself over everything else, you can finally begin to overcome fear. When you prioritize your own happiness, you can let go of everyone else’s expectations for your life, and finally create a life that you’re excited about.
So what’s the other side of fear? You get to decide.
When you move past fear, you have endless possibilities ahead of you. You can finally find a relationship that feels aligned, a career that’s fulfilling, and a life that makes you happy. All it takes is the conscious decision to choose yourself every single day from now on, and the work to release fear in favor of something new that you get to create for yourself.
