I'm still a little perplexed about my attitude... Perplexed that I'm stuck...Perplexed about all this fear that is holding me back from achieving my goals.
So the past couple of days I've really been thinking about this. Especially about this fear thing. I've brought this up many times....I keep saying that I'm too afraid, that I have too much fear about moving on with my journey. Finally the other day, I just stopped myself and really asked myself if I was really fearful and truly afraid.
1 : an unpleasant often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger and accompanied by increased autonomic activity
1 : filled with fear or apprehension (afraid of machines) (afraid for his job)
: filled with concern or regret over an unwanted situation (I'm afraid I won't be able to go)
: having a dislike for something (afraid of hard work)
Well losing the weight and getting fit and healthy does not put me in danger. In fact, achieving these things will get me out of danger of dying an early death, saves me from diseases and other things related to being obese. I can't see any unwanted situations coming from reaching my goals. Pretty sure that I won't dislike being healthy and fit. I might be a little afraid of doing the hard work - but I've done it for over 2 years now, so this should not be a problem.
So fear and being afraid are not my problem. Anyway at my age, why should I be afraid of success?
After much thought I realized that I'm not reaching for my goals because of fear and being afraid....It all has to do with my unwillingness to move forward.
What I'm learning during this process is willingness is key to reaching my goals. I can't have my heels dug into the ground and move forward at the same time.
I have to make the decision that I'm going for my goals.
I'm not hiding behind the excuse of fear and being afraid any more. I'm making the decision today that I'm picking my feet up and I'm moving forward to my goals. One step at a time!
How about you...Do you have your heels dug in?
