A lot of times I will design a fitness plan for a client and the client will start telling me how it won’t work. They tell me all types of “what if’s”. What if my work schedule changes? What if they have to go out of town? What if they get hurt? What if they don’t have time to prepare meals? What if they can’t do the exercises? So many “what if’s” and all I hear is, “I am afraid”.
If we focus on the what if’s, the things that might happen, could happen then we surely limit what will happen, both good and bad. We can’t control everything. We can’t get everything we want. We can’t predict the future. We must live fully in the present so that we can be open to all opportunities that come our way. The “what if’s” do keep us safe but safe from what? Safe from trying? Safe from intimacy? Safe from growing? Safe from experiencing life?
Don’t be afraid of the unknown. Don’t let fear sway your decision making process. Let go of your need to know all the answers. Trust yourself and focus on what and who you love. Follow your passion and those that cultivate it. Allow your dreams to motivate you.
What are you afraid of?
