All of the sudden, when challenges are presented, we may begin to feel overwhelmed and just plain "out of it” - somewhere out in left field on the outskirts of our comfort zone. Suddenly, fear jumps in, along with disbelief in our ability to withstand the threatening waters. For some of us, we begin to lose our interest just before we even have a chance to experience our first embrace of success - and so we stop being in the mood.
We may put off what we're doing by focusing on the least important task to do; leaving “zip” time and energy for the one thing that is in sore need of our attention. As the days move forward, our disappointment and guilt in regard to our meager accomplishment begins to ever increase. We just aren’t in the mood, so we presume we had better wait until we get into the mood.
A solution to this frustration and inability to get unstuck and move forward, is to just show up and be there. Taking tiny baby steps and getting our feet wet is a great way to start and move into the heart of a project, without an emotional response or judgment on our part. As we begin this bold and daring journey, each small action will invite us to experience something new and interesting, and we will gain a higher level of skill and experience. Fear of difficulties and challenges will only hold us back from feeling the growth pains so needed in order to progress, use our potential, and become fulfilled as an individual. In fact, there is a great chance that we will be so enlightened with the changes - that we will realize it is best to just show up and be there.
