As a coach, I frequently encounter individuals who grapple with fully daring to pursue the dreams they have cherished since their youth.
What holds them back from wholeheartedly chasing after these dreams? The answer is fear.
Fear cleverly disguises itself as self-doubt, uncertainty, anxiety of failure, the conviction of not being good enough, and the fixation on potential pitfalls.
Some people do take steps towards their dreams, but with a cautious approach and an air of modesty. This tentativeness is often influenced by external factors: their surroundings question, “Don’t you already have a house, a garden, a job? Isn’t that enough?” Their upbringing instills the mindset of “Just be content with what you have” or “First, find a career with security.” They are encouraged to have a plan B and to account for potential setbacks.
Understanding these fears and limitations is crucial in helping people fully embrace their dreams. As a coach, my mission is to assist them in recognizing and overcoming these barriers, empowering them to pursue their dreams with unwavering courage and determination. By doing so, they can genuinely live the life they have always aspired to, breaking free from the chains of fear and doubt.
