Leaping with your Fear!

Change exhilarates and awakens, takes us to dizzying heights, yet like most of you, it terrifies me. The natural essayist and thinker John Burroughs is widely credited with the quote: “Leap and the net will appear.” For years now, as I grapple with my own trepidation in various situations these words linger.

Sure. I imagine myself courageous, defiantly embarking on novel journeys and excursions, only to hear the mutterings of fear and self doubt. How can you leap? Where will you go?

As I confront these concepts, a central truth emerges. Wait. Leaping is not the absence of fear, but the will to live within it, unchained. One is always fearful, hesitant, cautious, but the authentically courageous embrace fear. It propels them forward.

Go ahead. Leap with fear. What you discover on the other side could transform your perspective, your world.
