How To Keep Going

Please Share...Thanks!The full title of this article should really be – “How To Keep Going, When What You Really Want To Do Is Sit On The Damn Couch With A 6 Pack of Beer And A Bag Of Cheetos.”  But, I thought that title might be a bit wordy.  So I opted for brevity.  The truth of the matter is that on your journey to create your EPIC LIFE, there will be many times that you will not want to move forward.  I want to help you deal with this inevitable stumbling block.

Ironically even people who live large and are very successful by most folk’s standard experience fear and sometimes paralyzing fear. In this article, I’m going to share some great ways to help you to get over the challenge of fear and self-doubt. One thing to be well aware of is that most people doubt themselves from time to time. Many people we consider to be quite successful deal with fears and self-doubt. I remember watching an interview with the singer Adele on the CBS program 60 minutes. At the time she was one of the hottest singers on the music scene, and she’s still phenomenal. She said to Anderson Cooper that she gets extremely nervous before a performance, sometimes to the point of vomiting. The difference between her and people who don’t live out their dreams, is she simply walked through the fear right into her greatness on the stage. She refused to let fear control her life. Courage is the willingness to act in spite of fear. Remember that courage is not the absence of fear; it’s the willingness to act in spite of the fear. It is so easy to fall into the false belief that we have to actually do something about how we happen to feel. The truth is that we do not have to actually upon...
