Dealing with fear is like being on a roller coaster. The buildup in your mind is often the scariest part. Close your eyes and imagine you're on a roller coaster now. It creaks as it climbs toward the sky. You feel it pulling you forward, knowing that the first drop is inevitable. As your car rounds the top, you're faced with one small fear of yours. From this view, you see it with clarity. What is this fear? Take a moment to ask yourself, what is the reality of this fear? And now, as you fly down the first hill, let it go. You begin to climb a second hill, a bigger hill and a bigger fear. What is this fear? As you round the top, you tap into your spiritual center for new perspective, asking yourself, what's one small action I could take today to address this fear? As the coaster drops, release this fear. Finally, you make your way up one last hill. Hold on tight, this one is the biggest. At the top, you discover a third fear you've been avoiding. What is this fear? Now ask yourself, what is one good thing I could learn from this fear? As you speed down this last hill, let the fear melt away. The ride slows to a stop and you look back at the three hills. You were brave enough to face them and your spirit is strong enough to face many more.
