The Only Way Out Is Through

Robert Frost is quoted as saying “The only way out is through”. Fear is what keeps people from doing most things that will move them closer to the life they truly desire. The only way out is through is a fantastic reminder that you can’t completely avoid fear. When you are stuck in the throws of fear, push forward, keep moving and eventually you will move through the fear.

Fear is a survival instinct that was very much relevant to humans in the past, however is not nearly as integral to our survival in today’s world. Quite the opposite, now fear prevents us from living. Many of us are conditioned to completely avoid anything perceived as risky, untraditional, or out of the ordinary. Where does that get us? Spending years doing things we do not like, feeling miserable, overeating to comfort the emptiness we feel in life, etc. That is not how God intended us to live. If we are not using our God-given strengths and talents, not following the desires of our heart, we are not serving this beautiful world we live in.

You must believe in yourself and move past fear to create the life you desire. Fear regret more than fearing failure! You have the capacity to create the life you desire.
