When I first heard this questions, I thought it was the best. It can apply to anything new that might be happening in our lives or it might apply when we know we need to make a change but we just don't know where to start.
Fear can be so paralyzing at times, that we do nothing for so long, while longing for something different to happen.
We get stuck and stick with what we know even though, something better might be just around the corner.
You have to want something more than you are afraid of it to make a change.
Want to live a less busy life?
Want to lose weight or get in shape?
Want a new job or start your own business?
Want a better relationship with your spouse or children?
YOU can improve your situation, most of the time, but a lot of people are afraid. They get stuck. They don't know what to do, so they do nothing at all.
If you are in this predicament at the moment, I think you should ask yourself this question:
Do I want it more than I am afraid of it?
Really think about it.
And then ask...
Am I stuck?
And really think about that too.
And then ask yourself:
What is the one things I can do that is different than what I am doing now to make that change happen?
Sometime I like to throw in one more questions:
What's the worst thing that would happen if I followed this through?
My mind gives some fantastical stories. Then I have to ask:
Are they true?...most times they are not. And that helps to give me perspective.
What do you want more than you are afraid of? Is there something in your life right now you want to change? What's worse doing the same thing over and over again or getting a little uncomfortable with change? What do you have to do to live a life you want to live? How will you start making small changes to make it happen?
