Amy at http://souldipper.wordpress.com/2012/03/28/occupy-blogosphere-thursday-march-29-2012/#comment-8507 has a brilliant post today including an amazing use of egg shells that I would never have thought of.
She also talked about Regina Dugan and her TED talk on:
“What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?”
asks Regina Dugan.
Amy of course had a brilliant answer as will most of you and it was not until I was completing my comment to her that I realized Regina’s question was for me, unsettling. When I first saw the presentation my heart thrilled to the potential of it all and then the strangest feeling settled over me.
Yup. That feeling was fear. It scares me to think I could do something, achieve something, without fear. Yes Regina, the very thought is freeing. Or it should be. If I let go of my fear?
I’m thinking that before I can leap to fearlessness I am going to require some guidance on getting there. Does anyone else understand the fear of fearlessness or am I just not grasping the whole idea? Am I afraid of being fearless? The answer has to be ‘yes’.
Logically I understand that those who excel have set aside any fear preventing success. Would I like to overcome fear. I sure would. It just all seems a little too scary.
Any and all advice is sincerely welcome. There must be a way around this road block.
I can see overcoming fear of some tangible thing or at least trying to overcome it but my fears in some things are actually a security. Or perhaps an excuse.
