I used to think the point of life was to get to a place where there are no *negative emotions*. No anger, doubt, frustration, sadness, pain or sadness.
Everything in life is either borne of fear or love. Banish fear and live from love.
Shift your paradigm!
Does it sound like a good plan?
I’m going to stick my neck out and suggest that it doesn’t work…
… well perhaps it does *sometimes* – I must admit that since committing my *2 Year Vision* to paper things have shifted faster than I can imagine.
But what about the times when it doesn’t work out how you wanted…?
AHA! Up pops our good friend *FEAR* in one of his many disguises. Ever get those dreams where you are running away but you aren’t sure what from? Well its him… hot on your heels or stalking you from a distance… Either way he is out there lurking!
Did you ever hear this expression “What You Resist, Persists!”
Well its true… but only always.
You think you have put enough distance between yourself and the thing that scares you most. You start to relax and breathe more easily and you think it is over. But just like the T-800 Terminator played by Arnie in the first film can’t just ‘get rid’ of *FEAR*! Just when you think you are safe you hear that eerie sound and have to start running again!
You may be familiar with the idea of ‘Swallowing the Frog’…
Well I’d like to take it to the next level.
Don’t just endure your frog for breakfast and surf the achievement for the rest of the day…
I say munch it down with relish and then look for the next tasty morsel.
FEAR for breakfast
FEAR for lunch
FEAR for supper
Hell you can even raid the fridge and have a midnight snack the next time you wake up in a cold sweat and can’t remember what you were running away from in your *bad* dream!
“Waiter! Please can you tell me, what is on the menu today?”
“Aaaah the house special sounds delicious. I’ll take one of those with the frog salad on the side please!”
So what is your favorite flavor of fear? Leave a comment!
