I’ve had to fight my entire life. I had to fight to even be born. Then I had to fight to live, then I had to fight through five surgeries. From there, I fought to show people what I was capable of in school. Even in college I fought hard to prove I could do the job I wanted. If you are new here and you want to know more about all that, go back and check out all the early posts.
There’s not much in life that I fear. The one exception is that maybe all of the mountains I have climbed in my life, were for nothing. Maybe all those naysayers were right. Maybe I’m not as good as I think I am. Maybe I don’t have gifts that can change the world.
It’s easy to get stuck in that mindset for periods of time. I’ll admit that I’ve been fighting it off and on this year. I launched this blog thinking I could change the world with it, and the response hasn’t been what I had hoped.
I tried to shoot a trailer for a TV show and it’s still not done. Nothing has worked the way I anticipated this year, but I don’t give up, for one simple reason. I WON’T BE BEATEN BY MY FEAR. If you feel like I have for a lot of this year. I have good news for you. The year is almost over and we get to start fresh very shortly. The new year means all kinds of fresh possibilities.
Take the next three weeks and make them count. Do small things to make sure next year you can start living your dream. I know what mine is, do you? If you don’t know, start thinking about what you want. What you want for yourself is all that really matters. I’ve known for a long time what I want, and I’ve fought hard to work towards it. I got tired and frustrated, and let that fear overtake me for short periods this year. Next year is going to be better. I’m going to get closer to what I want, and I’ve already started working toward getting 2016 off on the right foot. Are you going to live your dreams next year or are your fears? only you can decide.
