I’ve been working on a project for the last 9 months.
In the beginning, I was moving pretty fast, but now that the project is nearing completion I find myself stalling.
To be honest, the whole project could have been done last month if I pressed hard enough, but I didn’t want to.
I took me a while to figure out why I’ve been stalling and the reason is simple, I’m scared.
What started out as exciting is now turning into fear.
Fear of failure.
Fear of success.
Fear of it not being good enough.
Fear of being happy and feeling a sense of accomplishment.
Fear, fear, fear, fear, fear.
Ultimately what I’m afraid of is that in order for this product to make an impact I have to step way out of my comfort zone.
I have to really put myself out there.
When I started this project I knew I would have to do this, but I didn’t think it would come so soon.
I don’t feel ready, but deep down I know that’s just the fear talking.
Fear is a powerful thing, it can either stall you or push you.
In the past, I’ve always let fear stall me, but this project is too important to let that old pattern happen again.
So this week I’m going to finish my project.
No more putting it off for later.
No more doubting and being scared.
Get it done, because the one thing more powerful than fear, is overcoming it.
