Will You Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway?
Will You Do It Scared?
Will you do it even though:
“I don’t have the money.”
“I can’t afford it.”
“Mercury is in Retrograde.”
“I have a baby and a new boyfriend.”
“I just quit my job.”
“I don’t know what the fuck I’m doing.”
“I’m going to make a fool of myself.”
“What if I fail?”
“It’s so much work.”
“What will the others (insert one – wife, family, sister, brother, mother) think/say?”
(This can be applied to every area of life – romance, health, wealth, career, etc)
Will you feel the fear and do it anyway?
This is a picture of a girl at an intense three-day training called Sales Dominance. On the third day you get on the phone and talk to people. Clearly, this woman is petrified. And you know what, she’s doing it anyway – underneath the table. Fuck. It.
I used to be afraid of the excuses I’d hear from other people. Sometimes they would stop me dead in my tracks like a deer in headlights. I didn’t want to be pushy or step over boundaries. I care, I mean, I really care and I have pure intentions. And…that’s bullshit. Because monuments weren’t built on a foundation of excuses. Cities and empires weren’t created with evasiveness bricks. Do you know why I was afraid of the dodging? Because I was frightened of my own inner circumvention. As within, so without. Perhaps I am done with the avoidance of others because I am done trying to escape from myself (my own inherent power). Interesting how this works. I had no idea it was all so connected.
In order to get something you’ve never had you are going to have to do something you’ve never done. There is a lifestyle/experience that you desperately want. In fact, you have been praying and calling it forth from the universe. And when it shows up, do you accept or do you hide? Do you break out your rolodex of ego alibis or do you say, “In this moment I am unsure of how I am going to do this and I am still doing this, period.” Do you trust your own potential, capacity, and strength? Do you believe in yourself as your biggest, number one fan?
"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back-- Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now." -Goethe
Did you know that many people who sign up for mentoring, coaching, and training, etc don’t have the money? They put a deposit down and then work their asses off to make the money. They don’t even know how they will pay for the flight and hotel room. And somehow, it works itself out. The people you admire, trust me - they felt the fear and did it anyway.
Diamonds and Pearls are created under pressure. Have I bought coaching without actually knowing the full how of payment? Absolutely. Have I moved to a place without having a home and not even knowing anyone in town? Yes. I have stretched myself in so many ways such as these. I once tried exotic dancing at one of the top clubs in Vegas without knowing what the hell I was doing. Zero experience. I also did a youtube video where I give intimate details about my vagina. That video went on to have 30k views (yoni eggs). I’m glad I did these things and I love me some risk taking! Every time I told myself, “I’ll figure it out.” And, I did. Was it challenging and uncomfortable at times? Sure. It was also invaluable to my growth.
Will you feel the fear and do it anyway?
Will you do it scared and terrified?
Will you risk looking like a fish out of water?
We (Team China Brooks) are here for you. Some days you might find me under the table, slightly trembling, however; you will still find me – Doing. It.
Cheers to facing ourselves!
