If You Were Not Afraid

If you weren't afraid of ANYTHING - and I mean ANYTHING - what would you do?

Really, take a moment and give that question some serious thought. Why? Because, as I've been discussing in the past couple of articles, FEAR keeps us from experiencing so many things IN our life as well as keeping us from enjoying so MUCH of our life.

Take a look at your relationships or at the relationships that you wish that you had. What if you weren't afraid? What if you weren't afraid of getting hurt? (The only way to "not get hurt" is to not connect with people and, friend, that hurts, too!). Are you afraid of loving "too much"? What if you lost that fear and you began to love without fear? What would happen? What could be?

Take a look at your job. What if you weren't afraid of being taken advantage of? What if you weren't afraid of messing up? What if, instead, you did your best - without fear or worry - and you just worked as "the best you" that you could. I wonder what might happen? What if you weren't afraid of others "getting ahead" or getting the credit? What if you just became the person that did their best, without fear?

What if opportunity presented itself in that job and you weren't afraid to take that next step? What if you believed strongly enough in you and your abilities that - without fear - you began to believe in yourself as much as the one that offered you the promotion? What might be possible?

What if you were no longer afraid to pursue your dreams? What if you were no longer afraid of failing? What if you were no longer afraid of someone saying, "I told you so" if you did fail?

Again, what if you begin to believe in yourself and stopped being afraid to do so?

How would you live? Would your life improve? Would your attitude improve?

Just imagine how your relationships - ALL of your relationships - would improve and become more meaningful.

Just imagine.

Life without fear.

Think about that. Dream about that. Brainstorm about that. Write it down and dare - without fear - to take action.

What if you did? What if you do?

What will happen WHEN you do?

There are more questions than statements in this article. But, friend, it is because your freedom - TRUE freedom - depends on your answer to that one, all important question...

"What would you do if you weren't afraid?"

I'd love to get your thoughts on that. Leave them here or on the FYU fanpage on Facebook.

Dare to live, friend, dare to live.

And, as you do so, always be sure to...

"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
