Honesty: be brutally honest with yourself about your fears. Are you afraid of being criticized? Afraid of running out of time? Afraid that the result of a decision may not bring the right outcome? Afraid that you might lose time, friends, money…? Be ready to peel away the mask you wear that hides the fear.

Awareness: become aware that many fears are self-created. Learn to identify the difference between a fear that is there to protect your existence and a fear that you manufactured as an excuse to stay small.

Preparedness: ask as many questions as you need, in order to educate yourself around the issues, people, or opportunities you want on your side. Ignorance is costly.

Purpose: when you are on purpose, you are guided by your heart, and in that state, you trust that whatever obstacles you encounter are there to empower you. Rather than fearing them, you learn from them and by them and they fuel your empowerment.

You: fear creeps in when you have forgotten who you are. You are a being of love and light designed in divine perfection with the universe, and all inhabitants, at your fingertips to create your existence as you are meant to. You have freedom over your domain. As Simba’s dad said to him in The Lion King, “Remember who you are.”
