Challenges to Pursue (Part 3)

challenges 2

In this blog series I am going through 15 Challenges that the late Jim Rohn dared us to pursue in our own lives.

Today we will be talking about the second challenge that Jim Rohn gave us.

Face Your Fears

That’s how you conquer them.  Don’t dismiss them; face them.  Say, “Here’s what I’m afraid of.  I wonder what I could do to change that.”

One of the greatest challenges that we will ever face in our lives is facing our own fears.  Each of us has our own unique set of fears.  Some of us are afraid of heights.  Others are terrified of roller coasters.  Some are scared of clowns.  I even saw a show recently where a woman was absolutely terrified of mayonnaise. 

Our own unique set of fears can absolutely debilitate us.  They can bring us to our knees.  Some people will go to great lengths to avoid their fears at all costs.  They find a way to compartmentalize their fears into their own little boxes so they don’t have to deal with them.

The problem is that none of us can reach our full potential as a person unless we are willing to face our fears.  Many times, if we can find the courage within ourselves to face our fears, we will find that these things are not nearly as scary as we thought they were.  If we can find a way to overcome these fears in our lives, we will find that we are propelled to new heights, heights that we may not have even thought possible.

Often times we will not be able to totally conquer our fears, but if we face them, we can find ways to deal with them so that they don’t seem so bad.

I challenge each of you to look at fears you might have in your lives.  Once you identify what those fears are, take steps towards coming to terms with those fears.  Find out what you can do to help over come those fears and then do what you need to do.  By facing them head-on, you can finally knock them out once and for all.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
