Never trust your fears, they don’t know your strength.
Fear has a sneaky way of setting up shop in our minds, often under the guise of protecting us. It whispers cautionary tales of what could go wrong, making mountains out of molehills, and driving us to second-guess ourselves. But here's the thing—your fears don't know your strength. They don't understand your resilience, your courage, or the depth of your capabilities. They're not clued into your past victories or the challenges you've already conquered. So why give them the microphone?
It's easy to listen to those fears and let them dictate your actions; it's the path of least resistance. But taking that path seldom leads to growth or fulfillment. Your fears will never encourage you to take that bold step, to make that change, or to confront that challenge. They'll never know the sweet satisfaction of proving doubters wrong, especially when that doubter lives within your own mind. Your strength—your real, raw, untapped power—is so much greater than your fears will ever comprehend.
Instead of letting fear guide you, let it be a signal. Let it be the sign that says, "Hey, something important is happening here." Take that pounding heart and those jitters as indicators that you're on the cusp of doing something meaningful, something that could be transformative. And trust yourself—your instincts, your abilities, your grit—to take you through to the other side. Because the other side of fear is where the magic happens; it's where you become the person you were always meant to be. So the next time fear tries to grab the wheel, remember that it doesn't know you—not like you do. You've got this.
