“Waiting for the fear to disappear, before you do something, will have you never do it. Your reason for wanting to do anything and the benefits of doing it has to always be huger than your fears.”
“The fear will exist as long as you continue to grow.” (Dr Susan Jeffers) Your growing lies in your doing: doing differently, doing better, doing outside of your comfort zone. No growth happens inside of a comfort zone and growth of any form requires the willingness to experience discomfort and fear.
One of the most common universal fears is the fear of facing the unknown. We have no idea of what awaits us there and we believe that we will experience less control and more vulnerability in a new zone. Linked to this fear, is the unconscious prevention of wanting to leave our current comfort zones and space of “predictable safety”. We feel more protected and less vulnerable in our comfort zones.We have to understand that when we resist fear, we resist the opportunity to learn and to grow. If you were born to become the greatest version of yourself, you have to be prepared to fear so that you can grow.
