G.P.S. Motivational Series EP 8 – Overcoming Fear – Part 1

Fear is one of the main reasons most of us don’t move from where we are to where we need and want to be.¬†Fear of failure. Fear of rejection. Fear of the unknown. Fear of being under qualified. Fear of success. Fear of… (insert reason here.)¬†But most of what we fear rarely happens. And if it did – with some thoughtful planning and execution – we could overcome the issue. Ultimately, overcoming our fear is about PERSPECTIVE.

Watch this short video from my G.P.S. Motivational Series which illustrates the point. Then ask yourself, “How can I change my perspective so I can get a grip on my fear?”

Overcoming Your Fears?

Are you overcoming your fears? Can a person have a FEAR for so long that it becomes hard to distinguish?

Only You

You know what I mean, right? You live with the FEAR for so many years that it becomes a part of you. It didn’t start out that way, but the more you let it stay in your mind, the more it bonded with you – like a cancerous tumor that is so intertwined with the healthy cells of your body that it’s difficult to tell where the tumor ends and your healthy cells begin?

What fears have you lived with for so long that have become so much a part of you – that you can’t tell where the real you ends and the false you begins? How often do you live your life – not out of your faith and dreams… but out of your FEAR?
