Fear – Taking a Step Back


Image by John-Morgan via Flickr

I’ve been incognito for a few weeks due to life throwing out a few curve balls so I needed to take a step back, reevaluate my business and remember why I do what I do.

During this time I realize how fragile life can truly be. I got a call about a very good friend of mine a couple of weeks ago to tell me that they where in the hospital and that things had turned for the worst after they went in for a simple procedure. Then I received another call telling me that one of my aunts was in the hospital having her on battle going on.  With their lives hanging in the balance, one of the things I was reminded of was how so many of us live our lives in misery on jobs that we dislike/hate. You allow yourself to stay in this state due to many reasons and one of those reasons is FEAR! Fear of staying where we are, Fear of going forward, Fearful to take a chance, Fearful to step out of your comfort zone and start working at what you love. You have all these passions and dreams locked inside, but allow “FEAR” to paralyze you into not moving at all and staying right where you are. How sad. You would whether stay locked  into jobs you dislike/hate and not take a chance of living the life you love and desire. Because, you are more comfortable in the prison you have set up for yourself you choose  to not move at all! Again, how sad.

Yes it is possible even in this economy to finally take the necessary step(s) you need to work at what you love. I watched an interview on ABC’s Good Morning America with the First Lady – Michelle Obama and one of the questions she was asked is what should a person do that can’t find a job in this economy? My answer to that is CREATE and START your own business. There are many businesses out there, that don’t cost you an arm and a leg and that you could start and would love doing.

Here are a few websites to checkout in finding a home based business that might be of interest to you: http://www.cooljobs.com, http://www.backdoorjobs.com, http://www.fabjob.com

Don’t wait until a tragedy strike your life and/or you find yourself in a hospital bed wondering why didn’t I do “you fill in the blank”  sooner or be one of those people who allowed the dash between your birth and death be filled with regrets because you were “FEARFUL” to step out of your comfort zone! Use that FEAR to move you toward taking the necessary steps to achieve your dream(s)

My friend and aunt are both doing better, but they still have some recovery work ahead of them!!
