As I sit here and think about what I’m going to write, all that’s rushing through my mind is anxiety. I have so many wandering thoughts, that it paralyzes me to the point where I’m afraid. Afraid of what? This is a question that I have to ask myself daily and meditate on and what I found out about myself is that I’m afraid of success. Afraid that if I do succeed that I will fail. Through meditation and prayer, I’m coming to realize that I have to have faith.
I have to have the type of faith where I believe that God will see me through and the faith where I believe in myself. By believing in ourselves, I mean believing that we will have the strength, patience, guidance, endurance, and faithfulness to see it through.
We have to stop being afraid of change. Yes, change is scary, not knowing what the future holds, but we have to have faith and believe in ourselves when change does occur.
The change I’m facing right now is starting my own business. Becoming certified to be a life coach and also expanding my IT career. I have a stable job but I know that I’m capable of so much more, it’s just I’ve been too afraid to change because I’m comfortable. Sometimes we have to get uncomfortable in order to succeed. Instead of choosing to stay complacent, I’m choosing to finally make myself uncomfortable and embrace change.
I’ve laid out short and long-term goals that I will meet(manifestation) in order to reach success. I will continue to meditate and pray so that my mind stays clear and focused. I will no longer allow that negative voice in my head to control me, I choose now to have faith in myself and allow all of God’s blessings to surround me.
I leave you with love, peace, happiness, and positivity. Namaste!
God, when I read those words that you wrote, I am in the same boat! I’ve been hearing it a few times this week so I am declaring that I am afraid of success as well. There, I said it! I am a Health Coach but I’m still getting myself prepared – you know how it is, and I just know with all of this work to do, getting a client is just going to be more work! How will I keep up? Maybe you should start a group. We need to band together and uplift each other. I quit my medical job only to get another one. I hope to launch my Health Coaching career in January. But I’ve been procrastinating since March of 2020 when I graduated. Ok, I did write a book that I launched in July on Amazon but the marketing for a book is the same as marketing for Health Coaching and you have to be a graphic designer in order to have a social media presence.
I enjoy your blog. Sorry I don’t get to read them all.
Thank you so much. I had the same issue, being scared to succeed but I had to overcome it. Thank you for reading this and I’m thinking of starting a group!
