FEAR!! we've all experienced it, that unique state, heart thumping, ultra alert, deep breathing, tense... Ready for whatever threat is about to challenge our world. All we have to survive is within, thanks to fear we are now in a state that will give us our best chance of survival. We're running potential sequences, doing our best to estimate what may happen so that we may take evasive action, right!! Fear is a good thing, Yeh...
Now... Change the scene... We're actually safe, no life threatening circumstances, just doing our stuff, just wanting to create the life we want... We've done the hard yards doing all the things that we know we can handle, then... When we need to do that thing that we haven't done before, that thing that can give us big results, life changing results...
What the!!! FEAR's back, heart thumping, ultra alert, deep breathing, tense... It's all there!! Before we know it we're doing what fear does best, running potential sequences, estimating what may happen, all to protect ourselves from outcomes that we have dreamt up. They're not actually real, because remember, we're safe, it's not life threatening, it's just different to what we are used to!
See, the beautiful thing about our fear's is that when we are in that state, we are super strong, we are in the perfect condition to handle whatever it is that we are contemplating, the skill is to be comfortable with this and know that you are in a heightened state that enables you to perform at a greater level. We can use the imaginary scenarios that we dream up as preparedness and therefore be in the best state we can be. So why not "Own your Fear's"
