Working with a client recently whose business is growing and their response was that they were scared.
I’m always reflecting, processing and just analyzing as much as I can and I believe that this response is just another example of society’s hold on us. Fear is a weapon used by many. Parents use it, coaches use it and the most powerful seem to have mastered it. So much so, that our natural response to anything that’s not “normal”, is to fear it.
Imagine if you could simply retrain yourself instead to become excited about the “unnormal”. How much more fun would you have? How much more successful might you be?
Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Do not misunderstand me, danger is very real, but fear is a choice.
