Do you have a dream list? A list of at least 10 things you wish you could do. Yet, you aren’t making your dreams come true, because all you see are obstacles standing in your way.
I’ve long held onto the dream of writing a book. Yet, I let internal obstacles, like doubt and uncertainty, stop me. After blogging for a year, I found the courage to put my thoughts together in an e-book to share with you.
The day arrives when I sit down to write, and my anxiety spikes. I worry that no one will find it useful or interesting. Or, maybe I won’t be able to finish it.
I find myself at a crossroads where I am the obstacle. I can let the worry direct my path or I can keep moving toward my goal in spite of my worry.
I chose to start writing, and not let the worries stand in my way. I focus on my goal of completing the book, instead of the what ifs spinning in my head. And, my worry gets quieter as I pay less attention to it.
“Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards, but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them…they are liable to spring upon you; but if you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight.” ~Orison Swett Marden
I stared my obstacles down by continuing movement toward my goal. Now, I am excited to share my excitement with you of a dream fulfilled.
