At its very core, why do you get nervous or fearful?

Because you care. Because something is important to you.

If you were apathetic to an issue or situation, you wouldn’t be nervous at all. But apathy is not exactly a desired experience, is it?

Wherever it may happen, and for whatever reason it rears its head, getting nervous means that you desire to live fully, and to be the best version of yourself. Yes, it’s good: it means you’re invested in life.

The dark side of this investment, which creates fear and nervousness, is perfectionism – the imaginary idea that it’s somehow possible to be “perfect.” This myth, aided by Hollywood movies and TV “reality” shows that purport to portray people’s actual lives, provides standards that no real person can match.

Action: Instead of fixating on imaginary perfection that doesn’t exist, and makes you uncomfortable and nervous, simply take action and try something new. Embrace mistakes, and learn from them.

One oft-overlooked aspect of the Law of Attraction, the idea that we can manifest in our lives what we desire, is the importance of emotional investment. That is, we must fill what we want with love and positivity.

Ironically, if we are not manifesting intentionally, we can fill our emotional body with fear, mistrust, or negative emotions. In fact, if we have positive thoughts for five minutes a day, but fear or such the rest of the time, those few minutes only make so much a difference because they’re largely negated.

In order to truly manifest what we desire, it’s essential to:

  • Trust.
  • Envision our lives already changed – not see it in the future.
  • Love our new life that is already coming into being.
  • Be thankful, and hold gratitude.

That being said, if negative emotions surface, don’t be in denial that it’s happening. Acknowledge them, and tell that part of yourself that’s afraid that it’s okay. Then choose to refocus.

Action: Today, create your life intentionally by filling your desired goals with love and affection.

Just a wild guess, but maybe you are more powerful than you imagine.

Want inspiration? Picture yourself stirring millions. Yes. You have that in you. But we lose faith in ourselves. Maybe something happened when we were young that caused us to forget our true essence. Unfortunately, it happens to most of us.

And media coverage of primarily negative events doesn’t help. We can begin to equate power with abuse of power – stealing, killing, swindling. It’s a sad attempt to make ourselves bigger. Ourselves? Yes, that’s right – we all have that ability. Scary.

But we also have the potential to move in the opposite direction: to exercise power both strongly and wisely. To choose to make a real difference in people’s lives. To follow our soul’s purpose. To feel fulfilled, and make the world a better place.

The ability to trust in that vision, to follow your heart, and to take action is true power.
