Justified or Justafraid?

Don’t want to read it? Click here to listen straight from Brad.

Ever found yourself failing to do something you really want to do because – you were afraid? I sure have. What were we afraid of? Was that real or just an illusion? Were we justified or just afraid?

Weeks, perhaps months ago, at one of my presentations or book signings, you signed up for my Beyond Illusions newsletter. I’ve had this newsletter project scheduled for immediate execution for – – – weeks, perhaps months.

So where is it? What happened to it? You probably thought I shredded it like the newspaper I tore up during my “torn and restored newspaper” illusion.

I wanted to write it. I could do this. I would do it. Yes, I would. I told everyone about it. Everyone loved it, (that’s why you signed up). I could just see it. I would send you a magical newsletter article or blog every week. You would write back and together we would create a wonderful interactive community.

…I didn’t do it.

What stopped me? I don’t know. It felt like a brick wall. Was that barrier real or was it just an illusion? Was I justified – or was I justafraid?

Is there an important project that you have wanted to do but haven’t? Have you been putting it off? Why? Fear? Is the thing you fear real? Are you ready to face that fear – push past that illusion and make that dream reality?

The famed western novelist Zane Grey once said, “The difficulty, the ordeal, is to start.”

So I did.

Welcome to my first installment of Beyond Illusions.

We have a lot of fun and exciting things planned and I look forward to talking to you again next week.

Until then, have a magical day!


Re-experience the magic of Brad every week!
