“The history of human consciousness is marked by the battle between the old awareness, the ways of fear, and the new awareness, the ways of love” – Alberto Villoldo Ph.D.
When I think of brave and courageous decisions, it is not always about making big changes. Often it is in the small decisions and stepping out into the unknown, that leads us into our true potential.
Last weekend I was invited to speak at a Writers workshop. It was a small group of women and men who were learning how to finish and publish their book and I was asked to share about my experiences choosing Assisted Publishing and about the challenges I faced writing my book.
One of the most common fears a writer faces, is a mixture of doubts and beliefs that their writing is not worthy to publish. This is also the main reason we have so many talented writer’s out there with manuscripts by their computer, waiting to be good enough.
A lot of the writers at this workshop were in their late 60’s and early 70’s. Some have been resisting over many years to finish their book and publish it. It showed me yet again, that our fears are so powerful, that they can keep us trapped in the illusion that we all have time.
If we do have time, why do so many people on their death bed leave this world with regrets? Why do our fears that keep us small in life, suddenly become so insignificant at the hour of our death?
The truth is, we don’t know how long we have and so when we truly accept this fact, we can finally step out of our comfort zone and start making decisions today, no longer wasting another moment.
