First ever blog, so excited but a little nervous!
I’m Dani Simpson, Mindset & Meditation Coach and soon to be Published Author.
It’s been a crazy journey getting to where I am and of course I still have off days, in fact last week I had a few off days, self doubt kicking in and fear!
Which is what I want to talk about today.
I’m sure we can all relate to feeling this way; for me it’s been the fear of the unknown playing on my mind….
Not knowing when life will return to a new normal after lockdown.
Not knowing if this guy I’m speaking to could turn into something real. Not knowing how the release of my new book will do.
Then I remembered this incredible quote and have been repeating it daily to myself:
Feel the fear and do it anyway
When I look back to the day I had my first ever meeting with my publisher, That Guy’s House, I was so fearful that he would hate my book idea and me. However, can you imagine if I had let the fear take over and stop me?
I wouldn’t be where I am right now, writing to you.
I wouldn’t have felt the intense feeling of pride when the publishing house released the article saying I was an author; I wouldn’t have studied to become a mindset coach as the book ignited this pathway for me; I wouldn’t be filled with excitement and joy about what the future holds.
So, my point to this story: yes, you will get scared along the way but imagine if you didn’t do that scary thing! A fabulous friend said to me the other day "choose your hard", meaning yes it maybe hard to face the fear or maybe it’s hard to stay where you are. I know for me it was incredibly painful and hard to stay where I previously was. Feel the fear and do it anyway!
