In case you forgot, and it's clearly worth mentioning a million times, we want you to be fearless. It's what our #beYOUtiful campaign is all about. Being unapologetically, unafraid you. In this repost from last year's #beYOUtiful blog article series, we'll let Jenny Schatzle tell you more:
Do you know what FEAR stands for?
Forget Everything And Run.
Do you know where we run when we get fearful? We run back to what is comfortable, back to what we know is safe because fear is scary. Think about how many times you didn’t go after an opportunity because you were scared it wouldn’t work out. Maybe you didn’t ask for the raise at work because the thought of someone telling you "no" paralyzed you. How about relationships. Have you ever stayed in a toxic relationship both friend or intimate because the thought of leaving was scarier than staying? Or, how about a workout. How many times have we said "no" to a new workout because the voice in our head said that we wouldn’t be able to keep up?
How many times have we let the story in our head convince us that it feels better to be comfortable than it does to go after it? Fearless doesn’t have to mean quitting your job and moving off the grid. It doesn't have to be this grandiose gesture to prove you are powerful. It means standing up to the fear and the negative voice in our own heads that tells us we can’t do it. Fearless means you no longer run back to what is comfortable and away from the unknown. Instead, you run towards it.
Think about all the ways in which you want to change your life, yet the thought of it is overwhelming. Being fearless means taking little steps everyday towards being the best version of you. It’s those little everyday steps that eventually add up and create the big life change.
Fearless means saying "yes" to new opportunities even though they scare you. It’s about asking for what you want in this world. It means trying the new workout class you’ve been thinking about for a year ,or signing up for the 5K you never thought you could do. It means asking for what you want at work and at home, and starting the conversation with bosses and spouses and friends. It means drawing more boundaries around your time and self-worth within your relationships.
Fearless is about YOU being true to you and not allowing that negative voice to take over your actions. Whenever that fear sets in and you want to run back to what is comfortable, try this: Tell that negative voice in your head "not today!", and take a small step in the right direction. That, in my book, is FEARLESS.
