Exposure: Navigating Life's High Stakes Moments with Confidence

Imagine you're on a narrow mountain trail, where each step forward is a test of your resolve. This is called an "exposure" in hiking—a critical moment where the path is so precarious that a misstep could be catastrophic. This was the exact challenge I faced on a daunting peak hike, confronting a sheer drop that could end it all.

 As someone who battles a powerful fear of heights, I found myself at a pivotal moment where turning back felt just as likely as pushing forward.

But in that moment of intense fear, I realized something profound. God often calls His achievers, trailblazers, His pioneers—those like you who are determined to make a difference and influence the world—to walk such high, risky paths. The pressure builds, our "ears pop" as we climb higher, and we face our own “exposure."

When I was on that thin trail, here's what got me through:

  • Choosing a Focal Point: I focused on just the next step, not the entire daunting path ahead.

  • Selecting My Mindset: I decided. I chose that I would make it, reminding myself that others had succeeded on this same path.

  • Knowing My Objective: My goal was clear—to reach the peak. This single-minded determination made me unstoppable.

  • Relying on Support: Crucially, I wasn't alone. I had a guide, a friend who stayed by my side, offering guidance and peace of mind.

This experience is a powerful metaphor for life, especially when you are driven to impact and lead. At times, the fear of "what if I fail?" can be paralyzing, making you want to turn back or freeze in place.
