The F Word

Hello Honeybees,

I am afraid!

What am I afraid of?

I am afraid to FAIL!!!

We all have a fear of something and I think that’s ok but what I don’t think is ok is letting that fear stop you.  And that’s what I have been doing.

Yes, I admit it.  I am letting this fear stop me from moving forward. But recently God has been putting me in situations that are making me confront that fear.  I can’t deny it, I can’t hide from it or run from it.  If I want to move forward I have to just do it!  This fear is a stumbling block in my career.

So I am doing it.  I am confronting my fear.  I started with baby steps.  I dipped my toe in the water. I’m not sure of the outcome yet but no matter what it is I took the first step. Yep, I am so proud of myself.

I recently saw this video clip and it made me look at my fear of failure in a different way.  The thing that caught my attention was reframing what failure meant.  The failure is in the NOT TRYING versus the outcome.

How powerful is that!

Those words made me reflect on what has been happening in the last couple of weeks.  How I have been forced to face this fear.

What’s crazy is that I tell my sons all the time that they HAVE TO TRY but guess what???  I am NOT practicing what I preach or rather I wasn’t practicing what I preached.   I’m over my initial fear, I took the first step. I think I’m ready to start walking & before you know it I’ll be running.
