This Week Let's Recognize How Powerful the Emotional Energy of Fear Can Be...
...and how we can handle it.
As all of us have experienced, at one time or another, fear can keep us from moving in a desired direction. At an extreme level, fear becomes paralyzing or manifests itself in panic attacks.
A very wise person shared the following statement with me; it is about fear and the role my own mind plays in enabling the debilitating impact of fear:
He told me that he had suffered through a whole lot of horrible experiences in his life, most of which have never happened.
Our mind takes us to the worst possible scenario, and it is up to us to realize this as it is happening and overcome it. One alternative way to look at this is through the eyes of Napoleon Bonaparte “The moral is to the physical as three to one.” In other words, the motivation and energy you bring into a situation have three times as much power as your physical prowess.
One of the best solutions I have discovered is Susan Jeffer's concept of Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway
...because as she points out in her book of the same name, no matter what happens...You Can Handle It!
“Be peaceful… be a lifelong learner…and lead a meaningful life by assisting others…”
