Is Fear Stopping You From Dreams?
“The question isn’t who is going to let me. It’s who is going to stop me.” 

I love this quote attributed to philosopher Ayn Rand. But while it’s interesting to reflect on the many times other people may have stopped us from achieving what we want in life, have you ever considered that the one person most frequently stopping you might be . . . YOU?

In their bestselling book, Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World, authors Dr. Dave Braun and Dr. Troy Amdahl describe a series of “Blockers”—those habits, behaviors and mindset that keep us from pursuing the greatness that’s within us. For instance, if you’ve ever gotten an opportunity to achieve a long-time goal—only to overthink it and stop yourself from moving forward—that’s you putting the skids on your own future. 

So what are these Blockers that we subconsciously use to keep ourselves from living an amazing life? I’ll be sharing all 7 of them with you over the next few weeks. But let’s talk today about the first one: FEAR.

What kinds of things are we normally afraid of? Our first job interview, starting our own business, moving away from our hometown, speaking up at the office, having “the conversation” with an elderly parent. These are all things that happen every day throughout the world. And other people survive them.

The reality is that, most of the time, the paralyzing effects of fear are simply unjustified. As long as your gut instinct (and the facts) aren’t telling you there’s real danger, it’s OK to stay the course, focus on the bigger picture, gather more information, and make your move. 

In my journey, fear of leaving a domestic violence relationship held be there too long. I was afraid to be there but afraid to leave with small children in tow. How would I provide for them? Where would I go that would be safe? The little voice telling me I would never make it on my own. I am thankful and blessed that the moment came when I had to stare down my fear and make the hard decision which began a new chapter in the lives of my children and I that replaced fear with joy, security, love, and peace of mind.

However, if fear is a frequent stopping point for you, we should talk privately. In fact, I’ve joined forces with Dr. Dave and Dr. Troy to bring my followers the Oola formula via Transform, which is designed to help you break through these Blockers and transform your life, your finances, your relationships and more. Schedule a call with me to talk about whether this is a good fit for you.
Then stay tuned for the next few weeks for even more ways to move past blockers to your amazing life . . . Oola style.
Be grateful, have faith, and go get your OolaLife!
