I am an introvert. Yes, I am.
I know, it doesn't seem like it, but honestly it scares the hell out of me to put myself out into the world.
Sharing my thoughts and ideas with you online was a big step.
The first three times, I hit the "PUBLISH"-button on my website, I was terrified. I was thinking to myself:
What if nobody will read this?
What if people think that this is dumb and meaningless?
What if people give a shit?
What if nobody gets what I'm even talking about?
All these thoughts were running through my head, but then...
...I SIMPLY DID IT.
And when I did it, my heart suddenly made a jump. It said: 'More, more, this is so much fun!' I felt like going down a rollercoaster.
And this was the moment, I knew, I have to do this.
Richard Singer JR. writes in his book "NOW":
'Fear is merely an illusion fabricated by our ego to stop us from truly manifesting our true purpose and meaning in life.' tweet it!
Do you wanna know why it will always be scary to go where your heart wants you to go?
Because you will walk at the edge. That's where life happens. That's where the magic waits for you - the new land, scary and exciting at the same time.
When I realized that I had to face my fears to grow stronger, I purposely started searching for them and I'll show you what I found out.
So this was my spiritual striptease.
I have an idea. Make a "Fears-I-wanna-overcome-in-2014-list" and sign it with your name to make the contract official. Pin it on your fridge as a reminder.
I promise you. It causes miracles.
Appreciating everyone of you,
P.S.: Perfect timing. As I finish this article in the coffee shop, I hear Cindy Lauper singing 'I see your true colours shining through...'
Let them shine!
