As entrepreneurs, we are as prolific as a summer garden. We create new offers, launch new programs, shape new business models, write, videotape, record and offer the fruits of our genius in a hundred different ways, every single day.
It can feel like flying into the sun.
Each time you create something truly new — each time you do something you’ve never done before — new aspects of your soul come into incarnation. You are inspired, focused, devoted. That creative joy, that unwavering flame of desire, ignites your power and fuels you through the hours of writing, shaping, crafting your heart’s work. Power, alignment, support and determination carry you through to your project’s completion.
And then. You get ready to present your new baby to your world — and the voices of fear wobble and quaver. They lumber out of their caves, grumbling loudly, growing more clamorous, insistent, until your high blue flight crashes down into the murk of what-if and yes-but and midnight terrors that leave you gasping for air. Who do you think you are? What if no-one signs up for my program, buys my product, wants my heart’s work? I’ll lose everything I’ve worked so hard for — I’ll die alone, unloved, living in a cardboard box.
Oh, those voices — those awfully convincing, utterly unreliable voices! They can stop you in your tracks, if you let them. They can cause you to stumble right before you reach the finish line.
There are two primary ways of meeting and dissolving fear. Both require power.
The first remedy for fear is love. Embrace your fearful selves with love, understanding and tenderness, and they will melt into your embrace instead of fighting you for control.
The other way is to bring a clearer, stronger vibration into the encounter with fear.
Love and power are both soul qualities. Power is the active form of love. It is also the other face of fear.
Turn on your power, and fear disappears.
