The Power of Breaking Fear by Tim Marshall, Motivational Speaker, Life Coach, Entrepreneur, and Author
Incorrect self-analysis can be disguised as the other four-letter word: FEAR.
Most people give themselves the wrong self-analysis and avoid positive fear. If you seem to find yourself searching consistently for your purpose, then more than likely you've given yourself a pass to avoid being uncomfortable. Even worse, you can be beating the mental drums of thinking you’re not good enough, which can compile with the endless search of thinking that you are not living within your purpose. This can divide you on a road that is a split between the fear of not being good enough and the fear of the unknown.
The easiest road (which can seem the safest) is nothing other than incorrect self-analysis. This equates to settling or just being stuck in the road, which can often be a dead end (and becoming lost in the fear of not being good enough) to make a change. The other road seems too far away and it takes too long to know where it will lead, also known as the fear of the unknown. These fears are normal, and some of the most successful people in the world travel these roads often, but there is one major difference from those that face their fears and those that don't: TAKING ACTION.
There is no measurement of validity into what we should or should not fear, other than instinctual safety-based fear (which is healthy fear). Building personal growth means that you can build the permanent tolerance to take on any risk, and overcome any obstacle, by powerfully mastering the practice of taking on positive fear. Let's use the fear of public speaking as an example, and the solution to this lies in taking action and practicing speaking in front of others. After a while, this fear will be replaced by the hunger to improve, only if you want to change your self-analysis about the fear of public speaking. This is relative, and could be no different than becoming what you fear most in both your personal life and professional career. Through recognizing your fears and then taking positive action to break through them, you will build resilience of mind, body, and soul.
