There I was in the Boston airport. In a bathroom stall. Crying. Praying. Crying. Praying that I could have the courage and strength to do what I knew I NEEDED to do. For myself, my family, my business. The fear was unbelievable, it felt like a tidal wave crashing over me. I felt paralyzed.
All I needed to do was to get on the plane. But the thought of that was overwhelming. The symbolism of going into unknown territory, pushing every boundary I have ever had for myself to create a false sense of security. I sat there thinking, this is it. I can’t do it. I have pushed through so many fear barriers in my life the last 3 years, I’ve lost count. But this one, this was the mac-daddy. Bigger than ever.
I NEEDED to get on that plane. I knew that the moment was fast approaching. I had to make the decision. Was I going to move forward? OR was I going to stay in the comfort of where I have been? Do I have what it takes to be the person I really want to be? To build the life and business of my dreams? Do I deserve it? My mind was racing. It was reaching the point of no return. And then something happened…
I was able to snap myself out of it. Instantly. I shifted my focus to WHY? Why do I want to create more for myself and my family. I thought of all the amazing things I had done in the last 3 years and how proud I was of myself for taking the road less traveled. For doing the things people don’t normally do. For facing the things that people don’t normally face. I AM UNSTOPPABLE!
What I was experiencing I learned at the recent David Neagle event was reaching your “TERROR BARRIER”. This is the place that your subconscious pulls all the stops to get YOU TO STOP! To get you to stay exactly where you are. It is a defining point. What are you willing to do and face to get what you want? Are you willing to do whatever it takes? Do you get to YOUR terror barrier and STOP?
I was so grateful that I got on the plane to attend the seminar and learn exactly what was happening to me.
Where do you stop? When do you get uncomfortable? When do you feel fear? Recognize this and ask yourself How can I move forward? The only way out is to go through! In that place train yourself to think of all the times you did the “impossible”. Commit to moving forward anyways!
I am UNSTOPPABLE!
My faith is enormously greater than my fear!
