Doneareum (Don) S. Winston

At times, no matter how afraid we may be; we must let go of our fears. When retracing our histories, backtracking on our ambitions, as well as replacing our motives and agendas; we can always recall a time when we saw no way out. We knew or thought we knew, that we would not and could not make it through. I would be lying if I said that, "I have been fearless thoughout my life." Many a time, have I endured some trials that often made me sad and left me feeling the doom and gloom of believing, "this is the end, i'm done, its over now." I can't pretend as though I always knew and had someone to pick me up, push me forward, and not hold me down like an anchor! 

Don and his wife
As a child raised in and out of foster homes until I could reach the age of emancipation; the system became familiar to me like that of the skin that covers the back of my hand. Talks of me growing up to be nothing, to be just like my real family, often kept me wondering how would I prove the naysayers wrong and is what they tell me true? As a Man trying to find his place amongst society; heartache, hardships, headaches, and heartbreak became oh so routine for me that I feared I would never be good enough for no one; not even myself! As a Husband trying to take care of his family and be a provider; recognizing how hard it is for any man with some sense to get ahead on these nickel and dime jobs quickly became a fear I had to face! 

Don's daughter
Through overcoming my fears and not seeing them as the shackles that allowed me to stay bound to hardships as well as the state of mind of going through this life and never being able to reach the goals I have set in place for my life. Standing in front of my fears; allow me to face and embrace the reality of a man who can acknowledge in all truth and honesty where I came from, what I endured, what I felt, what I did, and most importantly, what I've learned in an effort to know that I deserve to have what I want when I put fear behind me in an effort to get ahead in this life as well as maintain the progress made. 

Doneareum S. Winston Book
There will come a time at some point in this life for all of us when we will find ourselves having to face the fears of the unknown. "What will happen to me? What if I do this? What if they are right? What if I fail?!" You will never know the outcome to your trying circumstances unless you step in front of fear and put it behind you! Some things are easier said than done; and then there are the things that need to be done. Learn to have less fear and gain greater victories in overcoming challenges and adversities.

Inward Core will like to encourage you to take what Doneareum S. Winston 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.
