Fear is a Bully

Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart. ? Roy T. Bennett

I never really thought much about it until I read this quote, but it’s true, fear is a bully. When fear gets inside of you, it halts you in your tracks, it pushes you around and it causes you to give up on what is important to you.

Not only is fear a bully, it is insidious.  It creeps inside your mind, filling you with doubt. It tries to convince you that it’s on your side or it’s acting in your best interest, but it’s not.  Fear wants you to give up on your dreams.  Fear leads you away from achieving your dreams and goals and lulls you into complacency.

Fear is a bully, and we are taught from an early age to stand up to bullies.  So stand up to your fear. Drown it out, stomp on it, do whatever it is you have to do to not only keep it at bay, but to destroy it.  Be led by your dreams. It’s scary, it is, but you can do it. Your dreams are worth going for, and you deserve to achieve your goals.  Fear is a bully, don’t let it bully you.  Put fear in it’s place, listen to your heart and follow your dreams.


But What If

Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart. – Roy T. Bennett

Have you ever thought about something your really wanted to do, some risk you really wanted to take, only to follow it up with but what if? But what if But What Ifsomething goes wrong, but what if people think I’m stupid, but what if….  They are three of the most useless words, ever.

You can’t let fear hold you back and stop you from pursuing your dreams. Don’t let yourself be held back by the but what if.  If you spend your life worrying about what may happen, you’re going to miss out on what may happen and it may be something that is wonderful and amazing.

Trying new things and taking chances is scary, there is no doubt about it.  Fear of the unknown is huge!  But in that unknown are amazing adventures, new inventions and creations and life.  Yes sometimes there may be failures, but that’s okay, because our failures are a chance to learn.  Stop saying but what if and thing about what could go wrong, say but what if and thing about all the amazing things that can go right!
