Fear & Big Dreams

By Evan Sanders

If your huge dreams don't scare you, well, they aren't sufficiently large enough.

But it goes past just being frightened. There are instances when you are going to be immobilized in fear. You may feel the immensity of the dream weighing down on your shoulders. Dreams are dense. Dreams are significantly heavy at times. They have substantial weight to them. But they have also got an phenomenal lightness about them if you actually give them an opportunity.

You see, most folks try and go after their dreams a couple of times, and when they fail, they give up entirely. The quantity of sacrifice, pain, and torment it takes to continually go after something that you have imagined in your brain is large. Big dreams will test your mettle . If you are not yet the person you need to be to see the dream through, dreams will effectively teach you those lessons through failure and ripping the rug out from beneath you. They have minds of their own and they can be your best teachers.

What are we able to possibly do when that fear comes?

Do we actually have to do anything? Rather than building walls, running from it, or trying to fix it...can we just sit with it and truly feel that fear? When you stop running from your fears and you invite them into your life, a relationship develops. What if, when fear, doubt and worry show up in your life, rather than building walls to push them out you begin building friendships with these emotions. Start understanding them, listening to them, feeling into them - just as you do with people in your life. Over the course of time you might just begin to develop deep relationships with these thoughts and emotions and they can ultimately become just as exposed with you as you are with them. Then, out of your worst fears, you might build the foundations of your life with rebar from the positive and the negative.

How powerful would that be...to be in a position to create an unshakeable foundation built on your greatest fears and your enormous dreams? You would truly never run again. In reality you would stand powerful through any typhoon because you are constructed from something that roots itself thousands of feet deep far into the ground and extends miles into the sky as well.

So if your big dreams scare you...good. But when that fear arrives, don't run from it. No, use it. Melt it down and cast foundations with it. Court it. Create a friendship with it. There's significant power in fear, but you have to be ready to tap into it.
