Fear Is Not an Option

F.E.A.R: False Evidence Appearing Real

Fear often has the power to appear real although this feeling has no substance. The moment you take a step toward accepting and controlling this demanding emotion you will become one step closer to living life fearlessly. 

Throughout my life, I've learned the hard way that allowing fear to control my destiny has held me back from many opportunities. More recently, after facing adversity in my life, I decided to make the major decision to really live life without fear or regret, and this has made all the difference in my happiness.

Live your life knowing that if you were to die tomorrow, that you would die as a happy person because you lived shamelessly without regret, allowed your ambition to soar, and didn't let fear hold you back from achieving all that you could. You have one life to live so don't be afraid to take chances, live on the edge, and do what makes you happy. This is your time to overcome any spirit that may be holding you back from attaining all you have set for your future and experiencing the unknown.

"We could allow fear to control our will and emotions, or instead, let the peace of God rule our hearts and minds."

From this day forward transform your fear into courage and live life knowing that fear is not an option.

Growing Through Life

This week our own Nucleus team member, Shayma Sulaiman, will share this week's message:

When I am ________ years old I want to have this goal accomplished.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to be at a certain place in life by a specific age. Goals are important and you have to set them in order to attain something of greater value. Rarely does anyone achieve greatness without putting in work. Just be aware if it doesn't happen by that specific age DO NOT lose faith and give up. Try, try, and try again. Everyone has their own path it may not be exactly the same as the person next to you, and that's ok. There's only one you so put your best foot forward and never give up. Small steps are key when you have a goal to reach.

Don't get stuck in a rut of simply going through life. Seek new experiences, instill in your mind that you want to seek a new adventure at least once a week. Whether it be trying a new restaurant, getting involved in a local organization or joining a local kickball team you must put yourself out there. Also, never get discouraged and always use a set back as a set up for a comeback and grow through life!

Have you found your purpose in life? If not, keep seeking your purpose. I leave you with this powerful quote below:

If you want something you have never had, you must be willing to do something you have never done.

-Thomas Jefferson
