Fear hides our identity

Hiding behind a plant

We go to tell someone we love themโ€ฆ.but pause and let them walk away

We go to ask for a favor or supportโ€ฆ.but we hesitate and never ask

We go to share our true story with people on Facebookโ€ฆ.but we curate half truths

We develop a business model that truly excites usโ€ฆ.but we never take the leap!

Beneath what is creating the hesitation, the procrastination, and freezing, is FEAR.

I donโ€™t say these hypothetically

I say them from experience.

Because I have personally experienced every example above. And, Iโ€™m confident that others reading this, to some degree have to.

If not, thatโ€™s cool, too, because Iโ€™d rather share what I really have to say, rather than share only what I think others want to hear.

Letโ€™s all take a moment to reflect on our own actions, and what they truly mean.

Letโ€™s all take a moment to ignore what everyone else is doing, and take a look at ourselves.

Letโ€™s all take a moment to remember, we have one shot at this thing we call life. Why not truly live it?
