Don't Let Your Fear Response Become Habit {Mindful Musings}

“Watch your thoughts, they become your words; 
watch your words, they become your actions; 
watch your actions, they become your habits; 
watch your habits, they become your character; 
watch your character, it becomes your destiny.” 
  ― Lao Tzu

Don't let your fear response become a habit. 

I began a new project, but it did not go as smoothly as I would have liked. Then I quit. It isn't worth the effort, I told myself. 

My response was one of fear. 

I was afraid of failing, so I stopped trying. This has become a bad habit. 

The quote by Lao Tzu reminds me that each thought leads to a habit. Only by changing my mindset and my habits can I make progress towards my goal.

Lean in and find creative solutions. Step outside of your comfort zone and try something new. It's okay to fail, that is the only way we can learn.
