Welcome to 2020 – the year of Fearless
If SPARK brought me far along on my evolution in thinking, then there should, in theory be some relationship between last year’s word, and this one. And given that this year’s word came to me in a Chinese fortune cookie – of all things! – I have to believe that’s true. There’s a component of the Law of Attraction at work here, and I do believe in it.
Last year began with the Shift – this year begins with the decision to not allow fear to be a factor in my decisions. Putting it as a positive, 2020 is the year of being Fearless. If I’m scared of doing something, or of trying – I’m going to do it anyway (damn the consequences). I became aware last year that fear was halting my forward progression in some ways – and 2020 is the year I take that emotion out, and disinfect it with the bright sunlight of day.
Am I scared? – absolutely! But nothing worthwhile ever came from playing within the lines. I like this quote from Jack Canfield, as well…that’s a little more prettified than the fortune cookie.
Fear can be healthy, or it can be paralyzing. Whatever the goal, whatever the task – let fear propel your forward. Get comfortable with the uncomfortable feelings.
I’ll be keeping you posted on my walk with fear this year…and I want to know what strategies you have for facing fears. It’s going to be a long year, and I’m sure I’m going to need some help along the way. But being honest with you is step one of my journey.
