Fear of change and moving forward is a great hindrance in most of our lives. The what if moments that keep us from acting so many times. It keeps us from risking everything because of the Unknown and the not knowing if we will get what we want. This is can be an over powering fear that kills any motivation.
I find that many instances in life are hindered because of the fear of the outcome, even for myself I have seen the many things I didn’t try because of fear. This recently came up in my life over some personal things and I didn’t even realize that fear was the reason I was not doing things I wanted or had in mind to do.
But the main reason I’m talking about fear is because of the fear of not getting what you want. Things like having your plans put on hold or not work out is maybe the biggest fear that keeps us from doing many of the things we need to do. Such as not taking a job because of the fear you will lose time out from something you want or not being able to take a vacation you wanted to at a certain date.
Fear of the change of plans keeps us from picking the thing that would benefit us the most in the long run, but would mostly be something we don’t want in the moment. Because of that fear we forget to consider the longer ramifications of the choices we make.
So my thought today is consider the longer term effects of a choice we make, think about the future, what you want and if it would be better with what you are doing or if there’s a chance it would be better with the choice you don’t want, or are afraid to make.
