“What would you be doing if you were not afraid?”
Per Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook Executive, self-exploratory questions like this one are posted on the open work spaces at the Facebook corporate headquarters. The questions are designed to promote creativity and dialogue with team members. Sheryl further discusses her thoughts on fear and fear creates barriers in her new book Lean Into. Although Sandberg’s new book discusses women in the corporate environment, fear has a significant impact on what we do and achieve.
Just for Today, ask yourself, is fear allowing you to:
Accept a job that is not a best “fit?”
Resist creating a personal relationship with a significant other?
Say “yes” when you would rather say “not now, perhaps another time?”
Best wishes as you create your day free of fear and full of courage!
