Fear & Doubt
Being frightened triggers automatic responses within our system, this used to be very handy many moons ago but it is very unlikely that we are going to be chased through the supermarket by a wild gorilla when we pop in to pick up some eggs.
Our body is now in a constant state of fear daily as we are bombarded by the 24 hour plug in that we are graced with. Don't get me wrong I am a huge fan of gratitude and am immensely grateful to Steve Jobs and his vision, but someone forgot to tell our body it is just a story in another land and the danger even though it is real, it is not real for us. So here we are in a constant state of fear with our adrenal glands in over drive.
So what is the solution, unplug. How funny as you are probably reading this on your ipad or laptop and I am telling you to switch off. It is so important for your health and well being you need to gain the discipline to do so.
Our bodies need time to get grounded become one with our creator / the universe / spirit whatever tickles your fancy. It is so important for soul to make this connection, this will be one of the major contributing factors to avoid total burnout and to your success.
How else can we control our fear / doubt. The next best thing is to get control of the little voice in your head. For funs sake lets call her Mildred. She has been with you since you can remember always in the back of your mind just edging you a little closer to her buddies fear and doubt. If you can become aware of this little (sometimes overwhelming) voice and figure out the triggers that set Mildred on one of her raving rants, you are heading towards peace and contentment. Take note of when she appears, you will be amazed at how much better you feel and how much more empowered you feel, now that you are simply aware.
Fear and doubt can also sabotage your future, it can literally paralyse you with fear that you simply do nothing. You have all these dreams and aspirations and you simply do not act on any of them because you are frightened, what if you actually succeed, frightened of the changes it may bring, frightened of what people may think of you, frightened of failing. So instead you do nothing because that is safe and everyone else is doing it, so it must be ok.
Do you want to be a success? Now that's a whole new blog certainly opening up a big can of worms there, what is success and how do we define it? Or even the question how do others define our success through their eyes?
Don't be frightened, don't waste your life being something you hate and do out of duty. Be who you want to be. So take the time today and find your Mildred and get to know her. Find out what sets her off and take note, be there to silence her and embrace the contentment this brings.
