FEAR’S JOB IS NOT TO SCARE YOU. FEAR’S JOB IS TO FREEZE YOU.
I felt stuck. I was broke and $53 thousand dollars in debt. I was anxious, depressed and overweight.
I hated my life. But I didn’t know what to do. I was completely frozen by fear.
Then I asked myself a question that would change my life forever: what would my life look like if I designed it exactly how I wanted and was doing what I was passionate about?
I realized that moment that this life was not going to happen on its own.
Fear was screaming loudly, but I decided I would rather try and fail, then wake up in 10 years and nothing has changed. I had to give it a shot.
I suddenly quit my day job and decided to go after it.
Fear tried to suffocate me. If I had one more day of doors slammed in my face I was going to be screwed.
“I wasn’t good enough, I was going to fail, I’m was going to end up on the streets.”
It told me I didn’t know what I was doing.
“Turn back now before it’s too late.”
“You can’t do this!”
Since then, everything has changed.
I started my own company I’m passionate about, helping people grow their business and tell their story through the power of social media.
I became an author of my bestselling book, Fish Out Of Water.
I lost over 30 pounds and just to prove to myself that it was possible, I even ran a 50 mile ultra marathon.
I became officially debt free for the first time in my entire adult life.
I started impacting people’s lives. I’m blessed to travel all over the world and make more from one speaking engagement than I did in two months at my day job.
The craziest part?
I’m just a regular dude, and I started this journey just two years ago.
If you would have told me this was all possible, I couldn’t have believed you.
But through this journey, I’ve learned you can beat fear at its own game.
To win, you can’t wait to know all the answers.
You have to commit first, and figure out second.
The perfect time will never come.
Just make the decision, and then make it right.
You don’t have to be perfect.
Take consistent IMperfect action because done is better than perfect.
Fear will make us question, “am I good enough? Do I deserve it? Can I actually do this?”
Remember, fear’s job is not to scare you. Fear’s job is to freeze you.
GIVE FEAR THE FINGER.
Look fear back in the eye, and take action anyway.
You don’t need to know all the answers.
You deserve the life you know you’re meant to live, just take the next step.
You got this.
