False Evidence Appearing Real

At times we are set back from greatness because of fear, we allow this four letter word to control or stop us from success. You beat yourself up when you live your life full of fear, you miss out on many great open opportunities. If you allow fear to dominate your mind you might never be at peace with yourself. Growing up there was always something stopping me from sharing my ideas, opinions, or bold actions. I call it FEAR, fear of rejection, fear of a bad idea, fear of failure, or fear of being laughed at.

One of my many experiences with fear comes from the lack of knowing. It all has a beginning and it must be tracked in order to break from it.  Growing up with a single mother the majority of my life was very challenging. It was difficult for her to build me up as man if she was always working hard to provide for a family of five children. For years I would blame myself for the absence of my father. It was later in life when I realize that his decision for leaving was because of fear, fear of commitment, fear of discipline, fear of raising a family.

So I learned that you are always capable of doing what you believe in or sharing what matters most to you. Don’t let this word, FEAR, overpower your decision for your future, take some time to meditate and think back to moments that have stop you from pushing yourself forward.
