Last week we talked about how people tend of make New Year’s resolutions and then their goal falls flat, never achieved. We also discussed how those resolutions hold little teeth because they are seldom crystal clear. Clarity is first secret to manifesting your desired outcome.
The second reason you are not getting what you want is likely due to fear. Yes, fear. I know that may sound strange, being afraid of reaching your goal or getting what you want.
Fear comes in many varieties. Sometimes it is the fear of what you'll need to do to get there. There is also the fear of the unknown. It can be the fear of failure, or the opposite, the fear of success. Occasionally there might be the fear of reaching your goal and then not liking the result. We certainly can’t forget to mention, fear of what others will think, and the fear of outshining someone else. As you can see there are a lot of dimensions to fear.
The second secret to reaching your goal is recognizing and resolving the fear that holds you back.
Take a few minutes to think about the reasons (excuses) you give for not going after your goal. What are they?
Look behind the fear to see if you can identify the real reason you’ve stopped working on your goal. What thought lingers in the shadows? Bring it out into the light. Examine it. Ask yourself, is that thought true? Very often that shadow thought has no basis. What I’ve learned is that scary things are rarely frightening once they’ve been brought into the light.
Don’t allow false fear or lack of clarity keep you from achieving your goals.
Until next time, I’m wishing you success.
