Fear is one of the biggest enemies to success. Fear disguises itself in many shapes and forms. It’s slick and devious enough to keep you from achieving results without you even knowing it. It can keep you locked in a position where you can’t move forward and reach that next level of progress.
To be a success, you must take the risk. This is where fear can take you and your future hostage, and usually, it happens at the beginning for most people. When that vision of a bright future comes to the forefront of your mind, fear comes in right away and tells you it’s too risky, or if you do “this,” then you may lose “that” if you fail. Fear likes to expose your failure before you even try to do anything! At this point, this is fear trying to shove you into a cage as you envision the outcome of your success.
Fear will lock you up and hold you hostage! But… you have the key!
When you are taken hostage by fear, you can see the success from inside this cage by picturing the outcome. Fear wants you to torture yourself by keeping your vision in your imagination and not acting on the possible. Remember, you have the key, and all you need to do is put the key in and open this cage. You can free yourself anytime you want! You just need to be willing to do it. Be ready to take the risk toward success.
If you have a fear of failure, a fear of being judged, or a fear of anything holding you back from success, then this is your time to realize that you have the key to your future! Fear is just a mindset that needs to be dealt with by you. You have the ultimate control to free yourself from this bondage. Now make things happen! Live to succeed, not to survive!
