“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” –Abraham Lincoln
Sometimes we forget how much power we have. The ability to shape your future is in your hands. If there is something you’ve always wanted to try, go for it. Let go of your fears and pursue those dreams that sit in the back of your mind. There is an element of risk when you make the decision to take hold of your future. That is what people are usually most afraid of.
Actor Mark Sparks said, “We don’t fear that which we don’t care for……our fear grows as our desire to attain or lose something does.”
This is so true because the more we desire something it seems the greater the fear to pursue it. The same goes for when we think about losing something. Fear grows.
Get a handle on it by keeping your eyes focused on what your future goal is. Remember that all success stories had an element of fear behind it. Many successful entrepreneurs, entertainers, politicians, writers, etc., have all been afraid when approaching something new. But they all maintained plans of action and remained focused on the goal.
Remember, you have the power to shape your own future.
