"Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free."~Jim Morrison
A new season tends to make me get all reflective and what not and with fall upon us soon (tomorrow!) my mind has been deep in thought. This quote by Jim Morrison pretty much sums it all up.
Fear exists only in our minds. It ceases to exist when we don't give it any power. Sure I've heard this before, I'm sure you have too. But I guess with some recent experiences it hasn't really hitme until now.
I was forced to step out of my comfort zone in my acting class a few weeks ago and did something that I let control me for far too long. It's kind of ridiculous how bad I allowed this stupid fear to control so much of my career decisions. However, taking that leap truly set me free. I am no longer afraid. That realization, that single moment, was and is huge for me.
What has fear stopped you from doing? I encourage you to challenge yourself, to face that fear head on and overcome it. You too will be set free and realize that it's all in ya head! It's been a minute since I did a Motivational Monday so consider this a version of that :-)
