Let Go of Fear and Be Happier @ The Center for Transforming Lives
Jul 25 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Let Go of Fear and Be Happier @ The Center for Transforming Lives | South Miami | Florida | United States

Do you feel something is paralyzing you in your life?

Do you want to let go of fear?  Do you experience anxiety?  Are you creating the life you want or are allowing circumstances to mold your life, because of your fear to take action?

Most of us face situations where we may have fear or we may not act because we are paralyzed. It’s been said “fear paralyzes” and it may happen to us when we are going through a change, when we are facing a new situation, or when we need to make important decisions.

Too many people postpone living out of fear.  We may choose to stay in a situation, in a relationship, or in a place of work, because of fear. We may choose to stay in what is familiar to us, instead of taking risks and see what happens.  We say we are happy the way we are, or at least, satisfied. We promise ourselves that one day we will have the courage to make those changes. We tell those around us, “not now, I still have time.”  However, deep inside of us, there is a pressing thought, “What if I do not have time?”  All of a sudden, and before we realize it, time has slipped through our fingers; and those dreams, projects, and contributions to the world we wanted to do have just stayed in plans.  We look back and wonder:  What did I do with my life?  Thinking about this reality can help you evaluate your life NOW, and give more meaning and purpose to your life.  Today is the perfect time when you can ask yourself: Am I living the life I want?  Is fear stopping me from becoming who I really want to be? Am I limiting myself out of fear?  The greatest limitations are the ones we have in our minds. Now is the time when you can make the decision: either to remain locked behind a door of doubts and fears, or to open it to new possibilities, and transform yourself into the amazing human being you can be.
