Reaching For MY DREAMS - PUSHING THROUGH OUR FEARS

Bree Shannon tells Inward Core how she Push Through her Fears in order to live out her dreams.

"For me, the key to all of it is to FEEL the fear and then do it anyway.  There were so many fears for me when I decided to change my career from a Human Resource Manager to an Entertainer.  I had no idea what to expect.  I can admit that my biggest fear was dealing with how my financial situation was about to change.  But all I knew deep down inside is that I wanted a change, I wanted to be happy, I wanted to enjoy my life and I wanted to enjoy what I did for a living.  Those things alone motivated me to push through my fears.  Something that also helped me was to look back on other things I had done in the past and had succeeded, and how it felt to achieve those things, even if it had been back in high school or college.  If I could do something that I was fearful of in the past, I could definitely at least give it a try in the present.  I also made sure I had some “cheerleaders” in my corner.  There's nothing like having support from friends and family that REALLY believe in what you are trying to do and really want to help you.  And if you feel you don't have or can't get that support from your immediate family or friends, join some organizations or clubs or work for someone that has something to do with or will support your desires.  It will encourage you and give you more confidence in your decision. 

Bree Shannon
It is wise and in your best interest to at least have a short-term plan and to take baby steps if necessary.  Having God in my life and sincerely going to Him in prayer with my plan, and then asking for His direction gave me peace with each move I made.  I went back to the performing arts school and dance studio that I grew up and trained in and I started working for them, just so I could be around the Arts.  I started auditioning and landed a job at Six Flags Over Georgia singing and dancing in a pop music show on the main stage.  I remember how I felt getting that job because it was the first “performing” job I got after making the life changing decision to pursue a career as an entertainer.  I had accomplished what I'd set out to do and started believing more and more in myself.  I remember saying out loud, “I can do this!”  It made me feel happy, overwhelmed, empowered, encouraged and excited all at the same time.  That job opened the door for another opportunity, and just like that, the fear came back again!  The truth is the FEAR never goes away.  But if you will learn to feel it, and then move in faith you will accomplish things you never thought were possible.  And you will enjoy your life!! 

Today I'm a featured vocalist for Carnival Cruise Lines and I absolutely love my job.  I get to travel to places I've never been before and meet all kinds of people from different cultures.  I have a melting pot of wonderful friends that I will have for the rest of my life and I've had life changing experiences I would have never received had I not done so many things in fear.  And there are still so many other things I want to do in my career.  I now know that even though I may be afraid to do those things, I can do them AFRAID.  Believe in yourself, trust God to help you and don't give up on your dreams.  Feel the fear and do it anyway!  Your “better life” is waiting and depending on you.
