Love, I got a huge reminder last week about what to do in the face of fear. I'm sharing it, so you can apply it to YOUR life today.
I spent most of last week in the Washington, D.C. area meeting with my editor and publishing agent, as we prepare for the launch of my book in June. Yes, my book!
For years, it's been my dream to write about the method I designed to help women beat the odds on their fertility journey...just like I did.
Yet, amidst all of the excitement, I hit my own terror barrier. That shit was REAL.
After a long day of meetings, I went back to my hotel room and sat on the bed, chest heaving, and literally shaking from head to toe.
This is exactly what went through my mind:
"Holy Shit. Who am I to write this book? I'm just a former prosecutor with pink hair, who geeks out on neuroscience and the unquestionable power of mindset! Who's going to listen to ME?"
I indulged in worst case scenarios, heinous what-ifs, and imagined all of the hateful trolls that would beat a path to shit all over my book. I allowed myself to spin in that rabbit hole for about 15 minutes.
Then, I said two words: FUCK. THAT.
My work is about helping women trust their vision and crush statistics, so they can teach their children to do the same.
Let fear get in the way of that? NO. FUCKING. WAY.
I recommitted to my dream.
When fear has us wrapped around the axle, we have a simple choice--back down or double down.
By recommitting to your dream, even though you are so scared you want to puke, you throw FEAR for a loop. Fear won't know what to do with you!
Fear will ask, "Who the hell is this cray-cray bitch? I'm outta here!"
It'll send fear scurrying...leaving more room for you...and your baby.
My ladies recommit every single day.
At times, they may be scared shitless, but they keep going, they keep saying their HELL YES--it's no wonder they are so damned successful.
Decide you will be one of them.
Change your mindset, change your results.
Lots of love,
Intrigued? Here's an exercise to take this to the next level...
Recommit. Every second, minute, hour, and day.
Taking a stand for your desires in the face of fear is no easy task. But don't freak out--this is about progress, not perfection.
Mastering what you think and believe doesn't mean you won't ever feel fear. It does mean that you won't squander your life being a slave to it. Bowing down to fear is a recipe for REGRET.
No one wants to look back on their journey, with a sick feeling in their stomach, knowing they held back, went cheap, or punked out. FUCK THAT.
WHEN you feel fear this week, recommit to your dream! Just watch what happens. Fear won't look at YOU in quite the same way again...
**In the coming weeks I will be sharing more about my book and the revolutionary suite of new programs we are launching. SO EXCITED!"
