What You Fear, Persists

May 10, 2011

…what you look at disappears…. Have you asked yourself what it is that holds you back from being who you are/living the life that you want to live? More often than not, the answer will be FEAR. What is fear? Fear is whatever stops you from moving forward in life. It is different for everyone. Most of us in this city fear failure. We would rather sit out on the bench and not go for that big job or not make a commitment to the person we know we love out of a fear that we may fail at all of it.

Fear stands for False Expectations Appearing Real. There is no fear but fear itself. Fear keeps us small and stuck in our habitual patterns. Love frees us and opens us up to a myriad of possibilities to improve ourselves and our lives. What you buy into, is yours. If you buy into the pattern of fear, it will destroy you, keep you down and prevent you from achieving what you deserve. If you reframe your fears, you can learn to transform them. Think about the times when you were nervous, nerves can EITHER escalate quickly into full fledged anxiety and panic OR nervousness can transform into adrenaline rush and excitement for the unknown. It is all how you perceive it. And as we know, perception is reality. Living your life in fear is akin to living under a rock for the rest of your life. Come out from beneath the shadow and transform your fears into something greater, allowing yourself the opportunity to thrive in a world of your own creation.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
