When you learn how to change your mind, then real and lasting changes are created. Awareness is the first step. Then new input, new knowledge, new way of being.
You can change many things on the outside but if the same thinking that created the issues in your life is still active, you will see the same patterns emerge over and over.
Learning how to lean-in to your fears is a skill; a practice.
Learning that when fear shows up, there's a message for you is a skill. Asking what that message might be, that's the practice. You can get to the point that when you see yourself avoiding something, you look at it. You try to figure out what fear is activated, and you go into it.
Learning how to go after the life you want takes practice.
