- Write down your fears. Be honest.
- Answer the following question about each fear: "How likely is it that that will come true" or, "How do I know that to be true, really?"
- Usually, our worry stems from fears that we're not good enough to accomplish our goals.
When you look your fears or worries right in the face, they tend to back down. THEN, you can tell the universe you are ready to let that worry go.

Turn your fear into an affirmation that you will take action on. Do it in incremental steps, ones you believe you can accomplish, but that are a stretch.
THEN, DO SOMETHING DIFFERENTLY! Invest in a program to give yourself the tools to let these things go. Engage another part of you in the growth process... You can move your body in exercise, or engage your spirit with meditation or other spiritual work.
Change comes when YOU change. When you want to see a different result, think outside the box, and do something different. Stretch your belief in yourself so that you can see other options.
And then, just do it.

You're worth it... and you have the obligation to step fully into who you were meant to be. Because, Erma Bombeck says it well:
"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'."
