Certainty in Uncertainty
As long as you are human, FEAR IS CERTAIN.
No matter what happens in this world - whether you think you left out something for your client, or your partner is always on the phone, or the economy is in recession - Fear will show up.
Having fear isn’t a problem. Fear is actually very useful. It only becomes a problem when you give your power to fear and allow it to run your life.
This is where you will find disconnect or misalignment. In order to re-align with your true self, you must first acknowledge the fear by connecting with it.
Fear is not a bad guy. It just wants to be heard and seen.
Wouldn’t you want to be acknowledged and recognized?
So does Fear.
HOW TO MOVE THROUGH FEAR:
Here’s a quick tool you can use that can serve both you and fear.
Every single time you are in a new situation - instead of reacting and being surprised that fear is here - decide ahead of time that fear will show up.
Use this certainty to work for you. Use fear as the indicator to help you recognize when you might be stopping yourself mentally and emotionally from moving forward.
3 STRIKES OF FEAR
Allow your brain to offer 3 strikes of FEAR thoughts and count them as they come.
Look for the following versions of thoughts:
- There’s something wrong with me.
- There’s something wrong with them.
- There’s something wrong with the situation. (eg. “there’s too much to do,” “this is not the way it’s supposed to be” etc.)
“Ok, I see you fear. Nice try. I know you’re trying to throw me off with your swings but I see you.
Thank you for trying to warn me of danger, but I am safe . I’m not going to die right now.
You're out of strikes, so go back to your seat until it's your turn again."
