Face The Fear And Do It Anyway – Step Into Your Calling

Yesterday I found myself being asked, “So who are you?” and “What do you do?” I was then forced into being either truthful and voicing my dreams and who I am striving to be, or with false humility, put myself down saying, “I’m just a blogger.”

I went for bold truth…

I express myself creatively while encouraging others to do the same.

I write.

I’m writing a book.

I am a speaker.

Fear. Shame. Worry of what others think stop us from stepping into and owning our true calling.

That was it. I knew that for me this meant owning my first speaking engagement. For the longest time I couldn’t watch it. When I did I still couldn’t share it. But if I want to be a speaker, encouraging others to be the best version of themselves, then I had to embrace who I am and what I feel called to do.

So, for the first time, I’m going to share my talk here, on my blog. I believe in order to move forwards, some fears must be faced first. This is one for me. Fear of what others think. But it’s out now and I am ready to move forwards!
