So far on this challenge you’ve forged a purposeful vision, identified a team of supporters, and developed a detailed plan. For the days we have left, we’ll be preparing to execute your plan, leverage those supporters, and realize that vision.
With five days left until you take the leap on your big dream, you should be sensing it now. That uneasiness deep in your gut. That coppery taste in the back your mouth. That shadow of panic flitting in the back or your mind. All symptoms of one thing: Fear.
Leap Task #24: Read the article, “Leveraging your Fear as a Leader“, write down your fears in your Leap Journal, and commit to moving forward despite them.
It’s time to drag your fears related to this dream into the daylight and confront them. Ignoring them won’t help. Imagining them away won’t work. Posturing and pretending will only make matters worse.
For some it’s the fear of failing—again. Others are afraid of rejection. Still others are terrified of actually succeeding. Whatever they are, dig deep and expose your fears. It will dilute their power and allow you to move forward with your eyes wide open.
What is your greatest fear associated with your dream?
