Motivational Mondays Vlog: Eliminating Fear

contributed by: Shannon Oleen 

I’m in New York City!

Ok. Not technically at this moment, but just a few weeks ago. It was amazing! But, during that trip, I had a lot of fear.  Fear that the trip wouldn’t go well…fear that I’d mess up an important opportunity…. fear that I’d get lost in that big ‘ol city… and the list goes on.

Which is exactly why I chose “Fear” as the topic of this week’s video. As I was standing on the oldest and longest suspended walkway 10 feet above rushing cars over the East River, all I could think about was, where would I be if I allowed fear to dictate my life? 

You see, this one word has more power than we realize. If we aren’t careful, our lives will pass us by if we allow fear to root itself in our minds. We can miss out on our greatest dreams because fear will stop us dead in our tracks and tell us we aren’t good enough to do it.

So, head on over to the video, and let me know what you think. Are you going to let fear boss you around? Or, are you going to take risks and fight for your dreams in life?
