In this journey to launching my crowdfunding campaign, I realized something. I struggle with fear. Not like scared of the dark fear, scared of bugs fear (even though those are relevant fears). I’m talking about insecurity fear. I mean to the point that it prohibits me from being productive. I will sit there and rehash different scenarios of this failing and tell myself the millions of reasons why it shouldn’t work.
I stop take a break from worrying and take a moment to get silent. Maybe step outside on the deck and breathe. Even though there are millions of reason why I should not try, it will NEVER stop me from trying. I will do it and I will do it scared. I continue to ignore my fear because fear is False. Evidence. Appearing. Real. Fear; is concerning myself with circumstances and events that have not occurred nor exist. Fear; gives me respect for my dreams, and makes me careful, but it should never paralyze me. I am more than a conqueror and I should only operate in what God says about me. He says the last will be first and the first will be last. He said I am more than a conquered he said that I am the head and not the tail. He said that eyes have not seen ears have not heard, and my mind has not imaged what he has in store for those who love him. And guess what else he doesn’t lie!
My fear is my fuel. Sometimes I get scared that I am doing all this for nothing that I won’t become the person I imagine. That this dream is just a child’s endeavor, but I have come too far to quit now and I am so close. Will Smith once said, “The best things in life is on the other side terror”. I am here to tell you from first-hand experience that I am terrified, but I am excited! I know there is something awesome on the other side. So have fear, but don't let fear control you.
