"Do one thing everyday that scares you."
I love this quote because it reminds me to continue to stretch myself every day, to confront the things that scare me. When we face the things that make us uncomfortable we gain confidence. We may not always be successful, but we have faced down the fear. Face your fear and do it anyway. Most times the things we are afraid of are in our heads. We allow ourselves to be blocked by those limiting beliefs--those mindset limitations--that tell us that scary or terrible things will happen. We already allow ourselves to be affected by those fears, even when the things we are afraid of have not happened.
This week: Uncover something that you've been afraid to do EVERY SINGLE DAY. Yep. Do one thing every day that scares you. It doesn't have to be huge or earth-shattering. We all have lots of little fears along with those big ones. So start small. Pick something you've been scared to do and do it right now. When you have done it, breathe a sigh of relief. You did it! Now write down what you will do every day for the rest of the week. Face those fears, big or small. At the end of the week notice how you feel. Once you've done something you were afraid of, do you continue to be scared of it? If so, that's O.K., but keep practicing!
