Transcending Your Fear Using Courage and Boldness
One Final Note. For many years I tried very hard to defeat fear, to purge my body of it, to cleanse my mind of it, all to no avail. Fear of more responsibility, fear of getting hurt in relationships, fear of just about anything. That way we become fearless by not letting fear control us, by shifting our connection with it, but without getting rid of it. I say that by choosing to be bold and courageous, we actually are accepting fear right then and there. When it comes to stepping out of our comfort zone , to do something like go skydiving, or give our first speech in front of a group of people, we know that our fear most likely will show up.
For instance, did you know that a large majority of public speakers are afraid before they go on? With boldness we choose to be bigger than our current self; to step toward that new future to bring it into the present; to expand beyond what we know, knowing that fear will show up, but we commit to action anyways.
That was amazingly difficult, but ultimately a fulfilling experience for me, and the right thing to do from my heart. We can choose to be bold in any given moment.
Transcending Fear: The Journey to Freedom and Fulfillment
Once the boldness is in place, the commitment to action is there, to risk the possibility of getting hurt or failing; we can now begin action towards bringing that new future into the present. When it was time to have that conversation with my mother, father, and the Hospice intake nurse, there was an immense amount of fear and deep sadness, heavy in the room.
I am just fascinated with fear, courage, and boldness and have noticed how much more alive and vibrant I feel when I approach my life this way. Photo by daveynin.
