It’s okay to be afraid, but when is fear not helpful anymore?
In life, there are things that we encounter that might be too scary or a bit overwhelming. We are often scared of change, and we doubt our strength to try something new to the point that we no longer give ourselves the chance to discover our potential to grow. The good thing is we CAN do something about our fear – we can face it and grow stronger through the process.
As we overcome our fears, we are getting stronger mentally, emotionally, and sometimes physically, as well. We learn to stand up (figuratively and literally) during the times that we fail, and we learn from the lessons life teaches us. In episode 304, Nikki shares her experiences with stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) and how she practices the three C’s in her life.
Listen to how Nikki was able to embrace some really big moves in her business and in life using these three C’s. Also, check out all our past episodes from seasons 1 and 2, the first three episodes of season 3 here.
- Sometimes you encounter delays as you are pursuing your goals and you just have to roll with the punches and be flexible.
- A guide, coach, or mentor is vital to help you learn the lay of the land, develop good habits and learn the basics.
- Courage is not about being fearless. It’s about having fear, feeling that fear, and taking that leap anyway.
- Life is about learning something new every day, even if it’s a small thing, and actually putting it into practice.
