Running towards fear - Esther Blum

Running towards fear

Feeling so blessed and lucky today–and beyond excited to host the ‪#‎RadicallyGorgeous‬ weekend in less than 2 weeks! (Couple spots left so now’s the time to claim yours)

I am deeply humbled that I get to serve some powerful and brave women who are proudly showing up to do some life-changing work on themselves. 

And they’re not the only ones doing work on themselves… I’m stepping up my game, too, so I can serve you on a deeply authentic way. My business has been talking to me and leading me to bring you these weekends for years.

For years I ignored these voices, though. “What if noone comes to my event? What if I fail? How on earth can I create enough content for a multi-day workshop?” You know how you get these voices in your head that tell you to do something, and you squash them down out of fear? That was totally me!

The greatest irony is that I’d been on the Today Show, Dr Oz, Isaac Mizrahi, and Carol Alt, yet was still uncomfortable hosting live events! It pains me to say it, and I’m not proud of it, but that’s where I was in my process. No one is immune to the struggle, and yet the pain of the struggle gives birth to creativity, change, openness, and clarity. 

This week I was coaching one of my Radically Gorgeous clients who’s coming to my weekend, and she asked me, “How can I do my job and make the world think I’m one thing when behind the scenes I’m doing another thing altogether?” We all struggle with the smoke and mirrors. And as long as we’re aware of the gap we have between our actions and our goals, we can then start to move towards those goals in a powerful and meaningful way.

So what got me past that point?

Over the years I’ve learned to actually run TOWARDS fear instead of away from it. Each and every time I do this, it brings me to a place even better than I could have imagined.

I also hired a wonderful biz coach who taught me that NOT helping people reach their highest selves was doing them an incredible disservice. This blessed work that I do is about leading by example and stepping into my own power so that I can inspire others to do the same.

And at the end of the day, what was I really afraid of? What was the absolute worst thing that could REALLY happen?!? I now know for sure that NOT doing anything and avoiding taking risks would have been 1000 times worse than any other outcome. 

We all think we don’t need permission to do things, but maybe we do… from ourselves.

So if you need to give yourself permission to get results for yourself, now is probably a good time. Chances are you’ve been preparing for your best moments your whole life. And you deserve to have those moments and life the life you’ve always wanted to have.

Live Gorgeously,
