They do things you believe you aren’t capable of doing. You believe this because you’re afraid of the unknown, of the pain, of the potential outcome. Instead of chasing your dreams, you’re clinging to the beliefs that limit you.
You want to change your habits, you want to follow your heart, and you want to finally walk away from what’s hurting your soul, but you don’t know how and the “What if’s?” keep holding you back from making meaningful progress towards your goals.
In order to move forward and create the meaningful life you want, you need to detach yourself from fear and limiting beliefs and tap into your courage instead. Living courageously doesn’t mean you’ll never be afraid, it means that you’re brave enough to act despite the fear and uncertainty. Those people you think are walking through life without fear – they are afraid. They just keep on walking in spite of it.
