Don’t let fear rule your life.
Remember back when you where a kid? You believed that you could achieve anything that you wanted to. You were invincible and you couldn't fail. Anything that you dreamed about was going to happen. And then as we grow older, we lose our child-like faith. We lose that sense of optimism and we start to get caught up in failure. We let fear take over and tarnish our potential for life.
I believe that everyone is placed on this earth for a reason and that greatness lies within each and every one of us. It breaks my heart to see so many young people not realising the potential that they have in life and not understanding the power that they have.
I absolutely love this quote from one of my favourite movies, Coach Carter:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Let that sink in… This is so important. I don't want you to miss out on fulfilling your purpose and potential in life because of fear.
Thoughts and feelings of fear occur in all of us. I know I have plenty of doubts in my life. When trying to grow a business rapidly, you cannot settle for comfortable goals. This year I have been setting some huge goals for my business and myself and it is hard not to think, “That is ridiculous Cam, that will never happen so soon.” If I let these doubts and fears rule my life, I would not be living the life that I love today. I would have had to settle for something much less than the life I aspire to live.
I want to challenge you to keep that child like faith alive. Expand your vision for your life. Anything is possible when you have big dreams and when you don't allow fear to occupy your headspace. Remember that you were placed on this earth for a reason and that you ‘are powerful beyond measure.’
This is your moment… Don’t let fear rule your life!
