There is lots of things in life that have the potential to hault our progress and success at whatever we might be doing in life.

There is a fear of not believing we are good enough to do a particular job, or succeed in that special relationship.

There are some who fear that if we are not obsessing over our food, we’ll gain two pounds and the world will end (please consider all of these suggestions in the appropriate context).

Fear comes in all kinds of shapes and sizes; and all are toxic to our being. It has the potential to kill a dream, relationship, business and it paralyzes our progress: If we let it.

I suggest we don’t. Choose to go enter this new year with courage, boldness and refuse to be taken down by fear. Sometimes situations in life may look scary, but sometimes they require us to feel the fear and do it anyway.

Like the good old writer Ambrose Redmoon once said; “Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.”

Choose to be bold, and very courageous in 2012.
