Face Your Fears and Take Action!

What is your FEAR?

As you wake up today and look at your plans for the future, in reaching for your dreams, what scares you?

It is OK to have fear, we all have something in our life that tends to creep up or jump out at us and keep us from becoming all that we can be.

Common Fears that keep us from our full potential include:

  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of speaking in public
  • Fear of opening ourselves up to others
  • Fear of being criticized
  • Fear of heights
  • Fear of snakes
  • Making a fool out of ourselves
  • Fear of Success

I am a bit of an Expert on Facing Fear.

Something you may not know about me is prior to my full time career in the balloon industry, my college degree was Recreation & Leisure Studies with an emphasis in Outdoor Education. My internship (where I met my husband, Brian) was at Bradford Woods, ran by the University of Indiana. Each week we had students and corporate groups that came to the camp for Team Building and Challenge course experiences.

My job as a high ropes facilitator was to tie the harness onto climbers correctly so they would not fall to their death from 100 foot platform up in the air. I would then have the climbers on belay (a rope tied from their harness, and attached to me to guide them as they were in the air to keep them safe while facing their fears through the high ropes challenge course).

Talk about an exciting job! Each day, I helped people face their fears and celebrate with them as they accomplished the journey! Brian and I always wanted our daughter Marlee to have that same awesome feeling of being up in the tree tops and facing her fears. In 2013, our family took a trip to West Virginia to an adventure camp.

First step is training:

  • What can I expect from the experience
  • What do I need to be successful, have the right equipment
  • Ask questions as needed

Next step is practice. They run a line just off the ground to learn what it will feel like up in the cable sitting in your harness. And the last step? Jump – Go for it!
