Enter The No Fear Zone

Written by Niambi Jarvis

A few months ago I delivered a speech entitled Just Do It in honor of a women’s day service. I tookrepparttar time to share withrepparttar 143150 congregation one of my testimonies and how God has blessed me with a “Just Do It” spirit. Sitting back several months later and having spoken to many of my friends and even contemplating on earlier times in my life…I realize that before you can Just Do It you must enterrepparttar 143151 No Fear Zone.

I recognize that both concepts create visions ofrepparttar 143152 fearless conquest of one’s dreams. That, in and of itself, stops women dead in their tracks. I have been walking inrepparttar 143153 No Fear Zone for a couple of years now. I wasn’t aware of when I entered it initially. But as I began to share stories with friends and colleagues, they had a hard time believing that I suffered from fear. Actually I not only battled with fear, but I also suffered with anxiety…fear’s ugly little cousin.

We all knowrepparttar 143154 old saying, “There’s nothing to fear, but fear itself.” Well, I don’t know of a more true statement. Fear is not real…it is an illusion that wraps itself around us and our dreams. Fear sounds like a roaring lion, when in reality it’s just a little kitten. Fear smells like a 3-alarm fire, when in reality it’s just a little smoke. Fear looks like a mountain of obstacles—when in reality it’s just a few hills of doubt. Fear tastes like poison—when in reality it’s just a bitter taste on your tongue.
