In one way or another, every book I’ve ever written and every seminar I teach is directed toward providing our 2 million year old brain the most effective ways to empower us to take ACTION in spite of universal, human FEAR.
Turning FEAR into POWER. This is the whole game, my friends.
As achievers we might not think we have fear, we probably just call it “STRESS.” But if I follow your STRESS it will take me to your DEEPEST FEAR.
So if you and I can just acknowledge that the FEAR is there, and that’s what’s stopped us from taking action in the past, we can make a shift. We can turn it on itself. We can USE FEAR as fuel to help us GROW.
Because, staying away from what we fear is never going to lead to growth.
So if you and I look at this life and we truly believe we were put here to GROW, and CREATE, and CONTRIBUTE, then we must FACE OUR FEARS. Unless we push beyond what we think we can handle physically, mentally, emotionally, we’re not going to grow.
See, there’s a STORY of why things are the way they are for us. And however accurate the story may be, blaming an event or a circumstance does little but preserve an identity that’s designed to shield us from our deepest fears. Our primary survival fears — FEAR of FAILURE which is really just the FEAR of NOT BEING ENOUGH and the FEAR of NOT BEING LOVED.
Until we push through these thresholds of fear, ONLY THEN are we are able to grow to the next level. - 1 hour ago
