Today I shared a new post titled 5 Truths To Help You Do “It” Even If You Are Afraid on The Lead Change Group Blog. While many of you are familiar with our expat story I have never shared the level of fear I felt when we were asked to make this move.
I wrote the story several weeks ago deeply believing that we all battle fear. And knowing that as long as we are webbed in place we can’t contribute our greatest gifts to each other, to our workplaces, to our communities, or to our world.
Since writing it I have run into more hurdles getting this article published than any other post I’ve ever written. Which makes me even more convinced that needs to be shared.
If you or someone you know is in the midst of a battle with fear I encourage you to read that article and to savor the quotes below. (Some of the quotes in this post are linked to previous articles about fear.)
1. Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world. Ralph Waldo Emerson
3. Facing your fears robs them of their power. Mark Burnet
5. Fears are educated into us, and can, if we wish, be educated out. Karl Augustus Menninger
6. Curiosity will conquer fear even more than bravery will. James Stephens
7. Fear Not! Jesus Christ
PLEASE SHARE! Have you ever been webbed by fear? How did it impact you? How did you defeat it?
