Fear Loves Boredom

Are you comfortable? That’s perfectly fine on a cold, snowy night but not if your goal is to live and lead a life of impact and influence.

It’s easy to shy away from stepping out to try something new.  Fear wants you to feel that way.

It’s easy to do it like you’ve always done it. Fear wants you to feel good about that.

Fear wants you to be bored. To fall into the same old routine. Fear wants you to do and be what is familiar and feel safe in what you know.

Fear wants you to be comfortable like you’re in your favorite sweatshirt or wrapped in your favorite blanket.

Don’t be reckless but don’t be afraid to lead from the front of the line. If you have led effectively you will have people there to catch you and support you.  

Fear can’t win if you decide to not let it win. 

I’m cheering for you.
