Most people want success… or so they say. They claim they will do whatever it takes (within their value system) and yet, when the rubber meets the road, an incredibly high number of people put a half hearted effort into what they are doing.
The fact is, success takes effort and it takes work. There’s no other way to say it. Yet, it doesn’t have to be drudgery. It can be a joyful experience where we confront our greatest fears.
A few years ago I went rafting with a group of friends. We were having the time of our life. Around one bend we could see people diving into a deep pool of water.
As a kid I used to love to dive into water. It didn’t matter if it was a swimming pool, a lake, a deep spot in a river or whatever. I loved diving and I loved water.
I told my rafting buddies I was going to jump from the rock. Now mind you, I am in my mid fifties and not the spunky kid I used to be.

When we got to the shore I excitedly jumped out of the raft and began the climb up the rock that led to the diver’s ledge. All the way up I just knew this was going to be fun. Then I got to the top. Whoa! It was a lot higher than it appeared from the bottom.

Panic set in. I didn’t know if I could do it. Yet, I didn’t want to turn around and not follow my heart. I stood there frozen in time.
How could I be so fearful? What was stopping me? Plenty of people had jumped from this rock and yet, here I was, a middle aged woman, scared out of my wits.
I knew the longer I stood there the tougher it would be to make the leap. Then I heard it; the encouragement from the crowd below. “You can do it. You can do it.”
Mustering up what courage I could I thought, “What the heck. You only live once and you don’t want to have any regrets.” I took the leap of faith. Before I knew it I hit the water, sunk deep and then eased to the surface.
Swimming to the shore I could hear myself screaming with joy. “That was a blast!” I announced with so much pride.
In the moment I took the leap I made a decision. The decision was, “Do I stop and wonder how fun that would have been or do I jump and trust the process?”
Once all was said and done I had more pride and joy than I could imagine. I had taken the leap of faith. Nothing could compare with the feeling I had when it was over. I succeeded.
Yet, I could have just as easily not done so. I could have let fear take over and never had the experience.
The fact is, life is filled with fearful moments. Moments that offer the opportunity to live our truth or hold back ever wondering what we could have accomplished.
Whether is diving from a rock or taking a risk in business, it all begins with a decision. Every moment of every day we have choice. Will we or won’t we ….?
One way we overcome the fear is by watching what others have done and learning from them. We learn from books, seminars, coaching, private mentoring and masterminding.
