Can you think of at least one thing that you've always wanted to do? What's holding you back? I have a list about a mile long. If you are like most of the population, your first answer (whether you admit it or not) is fear. There are hundreds if not thousands of self-help books that are written to help up us overcome our fears over everything from public speaking to spiders. So I'm about to make myself a bit more vulnerable and share one of my fears as I go through this exercise with you.
Take a moment and ask yourself these questions: (come on, give it try)
What is one of your dreams that you fear doing?
Cathy :Speaking on a radio program.
What's the worst thing that can happen to you?
Cathy: I can get all of words muffled or worse yet not know the answer to a question and sound like an idiot!!
What's the best?
Cathy: Have someone really famous hear me speaking and get hired as their wellness consultant.
What are 3 steps you can do today to start making that dream a reality?
Cathy: brainstorm a lead/contact list, write down a list of stations where I would like to speak, call a few friends (to commit myself, to get their encouragement and more ideas)
Even this small exercise has made this dream a little less intimidating and a bit more real. So here is my first step in running towards my fears (with butterflies in my stomach) !!
