I’m imperfect, let’s get that out of the way first. It’s not the first time I’ve said that actually and I do like to remind people that just because I teach women to change their lives it doesn’t mean I am ‘perfect’, no just like anyone else I am a work in progress. Life is a journey and I will be travelling this journey each and every day of my life. I’m here to learn too.
So over the weekend I had a fabulous opportunity to go on a half day Land Rover Experience, an off roading adventure I suppose you’d call it. Now I love cars and I enjoy a bit of a challenge but when I saw the size of the vehicle and sat inside the nerves kicked in. Can I drive this, Can I do this without looking rather daft, can I cope with the heights? I’m known for my I Can Attitude and this was a test of that. I believe we have a choice to do or not do. Yes we actively decide to make a choice and accept it. No I cant’s just choices to do OR not to do.
So my choice was…Do I do this or do I choose not to?
I found myself having a few limiting beliefs, they were popping up and tempting me to pull out. Bet you’ve had a moment like that too. They were taunting me, making my breathing a little faster and muddling my thoughts. You see I am no stranger to self-doubt and on Saturday I was determined to win over this thinking again. I’ve conquered much larger fears and difficulties than this so I quickly remembered other things I’ve done in my life, other things that made me nervous. I also reminded myself that to do this was going to make me feel on top of the world!
SO I plucked some nerve from my I CAN Attitude, I played a quick head movie of me feeling pretty chuffed, the movie that showed that yes indeed I can do it, I could laugh at the heights and the bumps, yes and that feeling of it being new and unknown. I could do it with the understanding this can be great fun.
So thanks Land Rover at Luton Hoo and lovely Instructor Andy. So today’s blofg is to encourage you to conquer a fear, let yourself go a little beyond your comfort zone and just see what happens to you!
When we overcome a fear, we shift and we change. Ultimately we learn..What are you going to face the fear of and overcome?
