“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face…you must do the thing you think you cannot do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
We all get scared and long for comfort and security. Daily we must ask for the courage to move outside our comfort zones, through the invisible wall of fear. Fear cheats us. Fear is designed to stop us from proceeding into our history-making futures. Fear entices us to settle for mediocrity. It makes us afraid to cast off the anchor we have hung around our necks.
Fear makes us believe we are less than we are. Moving forward through your fear is the secret to successful transitions from your comfort zone to the unknown – which is where your destiny is.
Do you have the courage to be you—the you that you were created to be? Prove it. Set a goal. Speak your dream out loud. Tell someone you are going to do what scares you. Take intentional steps toward your dream, regardless of your circumstances and in spite of your fear. That is courage. Come on, get out of your comfortable boat! Come walk on water!
I pray you will be encouraged to embrace the transition or change you are facing right now. I wrote this hoping you would begin to see transition and change in a different light, realizing that your destiny lies outside your comfort zone in the middle of the unknown. God uses change and transitions to move us from where we are to where He wants us – where we will best change our world.
Began to view change as a divine invitation to transition. You will be taught many lessons as your Creator orchestrates unique circumstances to transition you from where you are to where you are meant to be. You must choose to persevere and participate in the process because something is going on that is much bigger than you. You will be required to loosen your grip on the things and people you love. Courage will be required as you walk through the invisible wall of fear keeping you from moving forward into your destiny. Come on! The world is waiting for you to be you!
