This month has been really busy with the end of the school year. One of my international students went home to China and the other is staying with us through part of the summer. He graduated and was valedictorian. My oldest, fell off the trampoline and broke his arm. He missed 2 weeks of school and went back just to say goodbye and to get his cast signed. He had to have surgery to put his bones back in place. My youngest graduated from Kindergarten and he and my wife both had surgery this week (tonsils and a deviated septum).
So I have endured 3 surgeries and cared for each of those patients. I have attended 2 graduations (just in my household) and said goodbye to someone who was almost like family. And amidst it all, I signed up for a program to help me accelerate my business and teach me skills to help me move more efficiently through life, which I add to my tool belt of things to teach others. And I’m working hard to stay ahead in that program.
I used to be afraid of success. I used to think that the harder I work, the more work I’ll have to do. I used to worry that if I really put myself out there, then I wouldn’t have time for those I loved or to do the things that I enjoyed. But as I continue to pursue my passion and push to increasing levels of success, I find that I have more energy to do the things that are important to me, I clear away the things that are dragging on me, and I enjoy more of my time here on Earth.
What are you missing out on because you are afraid to act?
What is holding you back from achieving great success and being your best self now?
What would you be doing right now if you weren’t afraid?weren’t afraid?
