Fear is a natural and healthy feeling that is necessary to survival as a human being. Instead of shrinking in the face of fear, I use it to build up my courage. Fear makes it possible for me to experience the bravery stored inside of me.
Courage is taking action in the midst of fear. My courage propels me beyond my fears and into a place where my dreams will true. Because through my courage, my heart explodes with brave, daring hope.
I revoke the negative power of fear over my life; I reject fear’s attempt to control my actions. With faith shining it’s light along the way, I take positive and intentional action beyond anything I have done before. I shake off timidity – I shake off a lack of confidence and replace it with commitment and valor.
I have the audacity and the power to dream outside of the limits I set on myself from childhood. I refuse to believe negative words spoken about me by others. I choose to believe my Creator has a greater purpose for my life.
I express a hunger to know my purpose with a heart that is strong and willing to do what it takes to see my destiny fulfilled. By allowing myself to experience comforting peace, I find the strength to stand up to the fears that stalled my progress in the past. When I feel afraid, I affirm my highest good, placing my trust in a higher power.
I understand that rejection and failure are sometimes the result of taking a risk, and I accept that they may be some of my greatest teachers. By looking at every outcome, every result of taking a risk in a positive way, I learn and become more experienced.
Today, I choose to stand up to fear and allow courage to drive my actions. I launch myself into action, extending my reach far above the threshold of fear.
