February 2, 2015- Fear.
Let’s be cliché and name some of the quotes and artists that have spoken against the bounds of fear:
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.- Franklin D. Roosevelt
The mark of fear is not easily removed.- Ernest Gaines
Don't let the fear of striking out hold you back.- Babe Ruth
Fear and being scared are one in the same. They both ignite heighten moods, increased swings of anxiety, nausea—I can go on and on. Am I right? But let’s look at that anxiety as …a push.
I am petrified to put myself too far out there as a performer because what happens if I am a not as good as I think I am? Or as skilled as I thought I was trained to be? What if all of my rejections were “the universe” telling me that this is NOT what I am supposed to be doing?! What if!?
Lord, look at the “power” of Fear! What I am learning to fear is not the possibility of failure but the regret of not seeking out another opportunity. Instead of letting fear keep you away from standing…let it scare you away from sitting. Literally, ‘flip the script’ on fear.
