Jumping In and Overcoming Fear

Picture this: You are standing at the edge of a large, outdoor swimming pool. The light blue water ripples in a slight breeze, the sun barely shining through a patch of clouds. You know that the water is going to be cold, but you also want to have a good time swimming through the pool with your friends. Breaking the surface, the cold water hits our chest, and for a moment, we are breathless.

It seems silly to be afraid of jumping into the water, but that first jump is what holds us back from freedom.


An unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.

In our journey of discovering our passions, there is always that moment as we stand at the edge of the pool attempting to gather our courage to jump. Sometimes, we need to explore outside of our comfort zones, and that is sometimes difficult to do. I want to know how to make it easier to be unafraid of the unknown.

This week, I’ll be studying up on how to overcome fear.
