Are You Scared Yet?

Have you considered that expansion and growth feel scary?

If we aren’t afraid most of the time, we aren’t growing.

Some believe that if you’re on your path, and you’re doing it right, then you should feel happy ALL the time, and never feel scared.

On the contrary! This is not what having a human experience is about. If we are on track, we are inviting fear – because we are stepping outside our comfort zone!

Growth only happens outside your comfort zone.

Growth, by definition, means we are constantly expanding beyond our comfort zone.

When we are engaged with what is really important to us, we’re inviting emotions to rise.  It’s then that we need to be courageous enough to FEEL fear and keep going!

The natural response is to cut ourselves off from feeling, however we feel.

‘Feeling’ though is what it means to be a human being!

It’s a RIDE! – being human, being open, being ALIVE means being ready to experience it all.

And when we expand beyond our comfort zone – the natural experience is FEAR!

This doesn’t make you weak, it makes you HUMAN!

So, I ask, “are you scared yet”?
