How many times have you wanted to do something but your perceived limitations held you back?
Maybe you are afraid someone you knew would see you not acting “yourself” or you will be told to grow up, and act like an adult.
The only way to set yourself free from your perceived limitations is to practice challenging your fears.
One way to chip away at those barriers is to go to a place nobody knows your name, and do something you always wanted to do but we’re afraid because________.
It doesn’t have to be sky diving or spelunking, just something to pull you outside your comfort zone.
When I am away from home, I practice finding something I would be reluctant to do in the company of those that know me.
When I first moved to Florida, I went to down town Siesta Key.
I was walking past a musician singing his heart out on the patio of a restaruant. The patio was packed.
I wanted to dance, and the old fear came up voicing its opinion… “but you suck at it.”
I closed my eyes, bared my inhibitions, and started dancing all by myself right there on the street next to the restaurant.
I danced for like 30 minutes. When I was done, I felt like I had taken some of the power back I let my fears steal from me.
The next time you are away from home, pick something you are uncomfortable doing, and chisel away at your fears.
