At the beginning of the year, there’s a lot of optimism that this year will be better than the last one.
But fear will do everything in its power to make sure that nothing changes.
Fear is the belief that what you can’t see will come to pass. It reminds you of all the times that you’ve tried before and failed. It point out every flaw, every shortcoming, and magnifies it. Fear will give you a million reasons why things won’t work. It will always tell you that you’re too young, too old, or completely unqualified for whatever you’re attempting to do.
The opposite of fear is faith. Faith, like fear, is the belief that what we can’t see will come to pass. Fear focuses on and attracts the negative, faith focuses on and attracts the positive.
The difference is subtle, but it could not have a bigger impact on your future.
Fear says you can’t, faith says you can. Fear will keep your world small, but faith helps you to think bigger. Fear will give you a million reasons not to try, but faith will inspire you to do something and see what’s possible. Fear tries to immobilize you, while faith inspires action.
The difference between faith and fear is found in your perspective.
Your perspective will either propel you by faith or paralyze you by fear.
Make 2021 the year you stop listening to fear and try. Fear has lied to you long enough. Step out there and see what you’re really capable of.
You might just surprise yourself.
