I can’t remember which film I heard this on, so feel free to let me know, however ‘Fear really is the starting gun on life”
From being born, whats the first thing that we do, we cry! Why do we cry out? Because we are scared, this new open space is all new to us and being scared is a form of fear. So right from the minute we enter the world the Starting Pistol is firing for us.
Whilst we are young we have lots of Starters, the first day at nursery when we hang on to mum so tight because we dont want her to leave, the first time we walk home in the dark, the first time we sit in a car, turn the key and put our foot on the accelerator, the day we sign for a rental or mortgage agreement. These are all Starters in our lives.
So why, once we have the education, the car, the job and the house do we feel content to sit back and leave those Starters behind. Yes, going out there and Starting again can be scary, but so was your first job interview, so was the first time you started at ‘big’ school, so whats the difference? You made it through thar, so why not now?
The difference is, that, as a grown up, we believe it is others chance to make the Starters, it was always someone else who pushed us into going to our first ballet class, to applying for that first job, so why do we need to be pushed?
Don’t be scared, use that fear to start your next Starter Pistol in life
