Fear of starting

Fear is universal.

Fear of failure. Fear of exposure. Fear of succeeding. Fear of losing your status. Fear of phobias. Fear of vulnerability.

It is fear that is keeping us from taking a leap. From taking a chance on a project or standing up to someone. It is fear that gets in the way and draws us back to the ground. To fit in with everyone else.

Why are you afraid of this fear?

Write it down.

Examine it. Ask why again and again.

Not always the case but with enough examination, you will find a place to start.

So perhaps then, we don’t have to enough courage to finish a project–it can feel too overwhelming. What we need then is enough courage to start.

Starting is sufficient. And when you can learn to start, the next skill to master is to finish.
