We all have fear.  It is the instinct that keeps us from danger.   There is a good reason to be afraid of a hot stove, a burn can seriously injure us.   It is not normal to be afraid of change.

Change can be scary.  But what if you just focused on positives of a change instead of the negatives?   Because I am willing to bet that it is focus on the negative that you are afraid of and not the change itself…

You are sitting there reading this and thinking to yourself — “it is a lot easier said than done”.  And you would be absolutely correct.  The truth is that we all experience fear.  It is how we handle it that defines us.   I know first hand how I have made many mistakes by being afraid of change.

Fear – my Personal Story

2018 is a year of significant changes for me.  For the first time in too many years to count, I am not a REALTOR.   I place my license in referral and I am starting to pursue something that gives me greater joy.   There was a lot of satisfaction in being a REALTOR, I loved being able to assist buyers and sellers with their dreams, but the demands of doing so were stealing joy from me.   I did not have balance;  I was also terrified what it meant to not be a REALTOR.   Letting go of that identity completely was one that Spirit was gently nudging me towards in 2014.    I look back and see that now my fears were unfounded.   At the time it was not something I could see.

I hope this post helps you stop being afraid and start trusting yourself.   Trust the gut feelings you have.   There is joy in that direction you want to go but that you cannot see while you hold onto something that no longer serves you.   Push through the fear and go for it.   You will be happier as a result.   I know that I am.
