True Courage

Sigh….so it’s been a really long time since my first post to the J Spot.  I wouldn’t be worth my salt as a coach if I didn’t dig deeper to find out what that was all about.  While I haven’t posted since June, that’s not to say that I haven’t logged in or even written things to be posted.  Nonetheless, I just couldn’t move myself to action.  If I were coaching a client, I’d probably ask the question “What’s that all about?”  I know because I’ve been asking myself the same thing for the last 2 months.   At first I wasn’t writing because I couldn’t get the formatting correct.  Then I wasn’t writing because I couldn’t find anyone that I was comfortable with to proofread for me.  Then I felt like I shouldn’t be writing because I had no idea how to blog.  Then finally, just as recently as last week, I couldn’t write because I didn’t have pictures to use when I wrote a post.  The truth of the matter would be that while those may be very real obstacles to overcome, none of that was the real reason that kept me from writing.  The real answer would be that I am scared to death of it!  Scared that no one will want to hear what I have to say.  Scared to open myself up and be vulnerable to those that I know and those that I don’t.  Dare I say it….I am scared that it might be a success!  Isn’t it funny how we can dream about being successful but when the opportunity to get where we want to be presents itself we sometimes secretly sabotage ourselves?  Well for me, that all stops right here.  I may be scared, but I’m going to do it anyway.  So, I’m asking (don’t leave me hanging)….

What is fear secretly sabotaging in your life?
