I Faced My Fear and Ate Fire!

i-faced-my-fear-and-ate-fire-thumb Too often, we allow fear, worry, and doubt to dominate and define our lives. We allow them to steal our joy, our sleep, and our precious dreams.

Last week I was at a Marshall Sylver Turning Point Seminar where he taught us that in order to make a fear vanish, you must experience it fully.  And then he taught us how to face our fears and to eat fire.

I’ve got to admit that when the fire eating time came, my husband Richard was running up front and excited to be first in line.  I, on the other hand, was terrified and was slow to get up to the stage.

But, if you want to know happiness and realize your dreams, you have to be willing to take a leap of faith despite being afraid.  I decided I wasn’t going to let fear hold me back.  I knew there was an incredible amount of support in that room and I could do this.  So do it I did!  And ultimately, it wasn’t near as hard as I imagined.


Too often, we hold back and play it safe, in order to avoid becoming successful, feeling embarrassed, looking silly, being hurt, and facing rejection or possible failure.

We cling to fear from our childhood, traumatic experiences, and the negative media, like Linus, from the cartoon strip, Peanuts, clings to his security blanket.

It’s our responsibility to acknowledge, face, and dissolve our fear.

Here are some ideas to help us face our fear and put it in its place:

Get comfortable with fear –

Invite fear into your life.  Move toward whatever it is that you’re afraid of.  Feel it, breathe through it.

Do the things that frighten you.  The best way to deal with fear is action.  Tell yourself, “This fear will pass.”  Your world expands as your courage expands.

Focus on the positive –

Nothing has any meaning except the meaning we give it.  You get exactly what you focus on.  If you have fearful thoughts, you’ll attract more fear.  Positive thoughts attract success.  Train your mind to always expect the best and the best is what you’ll find.

Don’t give time, attention or energy to fear –

Hold yourself accountable. Focus on solutions and be consistent and prepared.

Take the initiative.  If you don’t take action despite your fear, opportunity will pass you by.  Just focus on what you’re working to accomplish and don’t let your thoughts dwell on the fears that will just stop you if you let them.

You are an abundant person –

Be grateful for what you have in your life.  Gratitude attracts more to be grateful for.  Be aware of everything in the present moment.  Appreciate everything you have.  Bring your drive, persistence, and talent into the present moment and allow it to inspire and motivate you.

Take time to savor the wanting as much as the having.  Life is a journey, not a destination.  Enjoy the trip and live a life of abundance.

Plan to be great –

Step into your power and dream big.  Follow it up with calculated risks and deliberate action steps. Have no doubt about your success. Your dreams are at stake here!

You have the power to do what it takes to break through any obstacles that stand in the way of yourself, your dreams, and your happiness.  Take charge and make it happen!
