Living in fear?

“You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith.”

Mary Manin Morrissey

How many dreams have you allowed to die a silent death because you feared that there was no way that the dream could come true?

How many regrets have you had when the dream slipped away?

Where are you standing now?   Are you standing for your dreams or against your dreams?

A dream is a vision of what you would like to come true.   Often those dreams sit idly by as the daily activities of life seep in and drain away the energy and passion to seek the dream.   It only takes a day and the days turn into weeks, and weeks turn into months and months into years and years into decades and finally the dream and life slip away.

It only takes a moment to lose the dream and it only takes a moment to grab the dream in a tight embrace.   It is in the moment that you embrace the dream that the true passion of your soul awakens and something special begins to happen.  Your life suddenly takes on new meaning, new direction and new energy.   The dream when fully embraced allows you to move through obstacles and setbacks.  The dream brings you closer to your true self.

Fear however reduces the dream to a mere speck, just a small flicker of light that reminds you what could have been.   The dream appears out of reach and perhaps too small to bring to life.  Sadly the dream falls out of your hands and lives no more.   Fear can do that, fear can silence the flame, fear can silence the imagination, and fear can put you into a box in which you only hear the echoes of your voice … my dream, my dream, my dream.

What then can replace fear?   What will allow you to reach out and touch your dreams?

What new belief must you have to overcome your fear?

What are you doing to overcome your fears?
