“I think fear is a universal human experience…” Can I get an amen?
Whether it’s heights, a first date, or childbirth, we all experience fear. Maybe those aren’t on your list (they have been on mine!), but I bet you could list a few of your own. Sometimes fears are small and not a big deal, like the fear of the dark. Relatively easy to overcome for most people. Sometimes they can be absolutely consuming, like the fear of being alone when a loved one passes. In every case, however, we have the ability to tap into something beyond ourselves to help us get past the fear and even thrive. I fully believe that thing is faith.
When you’re an entrepreneur or you dream bigger dreams than you think you’re capable of today, you face fear. But maybe fear can be a motivator. Maybe our fear can actually be the thing that pushes us to rise up to the dreams that we think might be bigger than we are. They’re definitely not bigger than God, after all.
