Show up and Do It Afraid


All you need do is show up and give it your best. Life expects no less. Life does not expect you to always be the best. It expects you always give your best. It expects you to do your best. It expects you to be alive and show up. Life does not expect you to know it all. It expects you to learn. It expects you to grow. It expects you to be sincere and true to who you are, what you know and seek to get better. Seek for perfection. Seek for excellence. Push to the top. Have your eyes set on the mountaintop. Life expects you to show up and take your place.
Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway. (John Wayne)
In life there will always be Fear and Faith. When accessed rightly, they are the "yin and yang." If there was no fear of what use is faith and courage. If there was no faith and courage, to what end is fear. There is Fear, so we need Faith and Courage. We need them to access the fullness life has to offer, and fulfill our place.
Either life entails courage, or it ceases to be life. (E. M. Forster)
Is darkness real? (That is not a trick question.) How does darkness come? Your guess is just as good as mine. Darkness is simply an absence of light. Darkness comes when light is taken away, and leaves when light comes. Right?
Courage is the complement of fear. A man who is fearless cannot be courageous. [He is also a fool.] (Robert A. Heinlein)
In the same token, Fear is blown away when Faith (and courage) arrives the scene. It is blown away by daring to show up and take your place. So show up and take your place in life. Let no fear, or person rob you of that. Refuse to be incapacitated by fear. Do it afraid, if you have to. It is okay to do it wobbly and badly at first until you know how to do it well. Don't let the fear of blame, or what people will say stop you. "What is worth doing is worth doing badly till you know how to do it well." (Les Brown) Whatever it takes, keep pushing. Your morning is coming. Your season is here.
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life. (Muhammad Ali) 
Keep breaking new grounds. Keep winning. It is your destiny.
