Do you feel like you’re still stuck in the same place? Fear lurks beneath the surface of a choice to live in the status quo despite compelling reasons for change. Fear has many sources:
• A fear of discomfort
• A fear of failure
• A fear of disappointment
• A fear of the unknown
• A fear that you are not enough
You were fashioned to reach your highest potential. No one else can be responsible for the choices that will propel you toward a life of purpose and fulfillment. You are a steward of all the opportunities and unique qualities you have received.
You do not control what happens to you. Acknowledging this is the first step. The shortages you may be facing and the expectations around you; they may be all out of your control. But the truth is you do control what happens inside you when something happens to you, how it affects you, and your response. This is proactive leadership.
