Have you ever asked yourself what is truly holding you back from living the life you want to live? I have learned from some of the best in the business and I want to share this information with my followers. During a recent Anthony Robbins event in Florida and another with Bob Proctor in Los Angeles, I've realized that the only thing holding us back from truly experiencing life to the fullest is FEAR. But wait, what is fear anyways and how does it hold you back? We all know how it feels to be scared but how does fear actually hold you back from living the life you want to live?
During my own research I ask young entrepreneurs what are there limiting beliefs or fears many say the fear of success or the fear of failure and other's the fear of rejection. When you break it down and really think about it what does that really mean?
I've learned that all our fears fall into two underlining categories;
1. The fear that we are not enough
2. The fear that we won't be loved
The fear we are not adequate or the fear we won't be loved falls into almost all primary fears. If you have a fear of success what you're really saying is that you don't feel that you are enough or that you do not deserve success. If you have a fear of rejection, you really have a fear of not being loved or accepted. Maybe you are afraid to approach or take a chance with that special someone because being afraid of rejection or that you are not enough.
Is anyone afraid of fire? I never was until I was faced with walking barefoot through 2000 degrees burning hot coals. All of a sudden a fear was created that I never thought existed. What I realized during this amazing is that I wasn't afraid of the 2000 degree burning coals, I was afraid of the pain that the coals would cause to my feet, or what if I tripped would this be the end of me? After what seemed like hours of mental preparation it was finally my turn. Thanks to the coaching and mental preparation by Anthony Robbins I didn't hesitate, my only focus was to get across the coals and how great I was going to feel when I made it alive to the other side.
After this truly amazing experience I have been able to apply this all aspects of my life. When I am going through something I shift my focus on the results and how good it will feel when I achieve those results. If you were in the middle of the fire walk would never not stop in the middle of the coals, right!
My advice to anyone who is afraid to live the life they want is to change your focus, don't focus on the the current situation, focus on the goal line! Remember Success is the manifestation of the image you hold of yourself in your mind, you must have a vision of your life and of yourself.
