Marc Lacy
I remember when I was a freshman in high school. I was on the freshmen basketball team and didn’t get much playing time. I worked hard; but my skills were not developed enough for me to contribute significantly. As a result, friends and teammates would tease me regularly about my lack of playing time. My confidence was not too high as the end of the season was near. With only a couple of games left, my coach rewarded me with more minutes as he appreciated my work ethic. As a result my production increased and I felt like a true contributor. 

However the challenges were not over as during that summer, a few of the varsity members in a roundabout fashion, indicated to me that I’d ride the bench on JV. At first I was scared and moments of despair kicked. But I prayed, maintained my faith and work on strength, conditioning, and shooting the ball that entire summer. That next year I went on to lead the JV in scoring and rebounding. Subsequently during my senior year, I led the team in scoring, made all-state, and earned a basketball scholarship to a Division I school.

Inward Core will like to encourage you to take what Marc Lacy has provided and apply it to your life starting today. Try these easy steps:
  • Make a list of the fears you want to face. Select one fear that you will work on for 21 days. Don't worry about how daunting the fear is, but how you will feel after you accomplish the goal or push through your fear. This may take some thinking. For an example, you may want to approach more strangers, but don't feel comfortable. An excuse you may use is "They don't care what I have to say." or  "I don't want anyone else to hurt me."  
  • Beside each excuse write down an action step(s) you can take to get rid of the excuse. Ex. "I will start off by speaking to people who get on the elevator with me in the mornings at work." or "I will purposely go to different events, speak to 2 people, and collect their information."
  • Assign a date of when you will take the action step(s)
  • Talk to someone about your fears/excuses and the steps you are willing to take to push through your fears (Please select a person that will support you and not inform others). 
  • Celebrate ALL steps you take in order to help you push through your fears (even the small ones).
Please send Inward Core an email of any fears you decided to Push Through or email us if you need more suggestions to help you push through your fears.
