It is said that the opposite of fear is love. As long as fear hinders or motivates you, Taking Care Of You will not be a priority in your life.
Love is secure. Fear is anxious.
Love is accepting. Fear is rejecting.
Love is receptive. Fear is close-minded.
Fear has its place in life, however, it is you who allows it to have the power it does or not have. For the most part, fearless people do know and feel fear. However, they do not give their power over to the fear. Instead, the fear is a catalyst that prompts action.
From Zen Habits:
"When you take action on a problem, it’s not so bad — it’s just a series of steps you need to take to solve the problem. You aren’t paralyzed anymore when you start to take action...The plan will kill the fear. It is taking something that is scary and unknown, and turning it into something concrete, solvable, doable."This is a great post that presented the issue of fears lurking in our mind AND what to do about it. Love that.
It also illustrates the philosophy I believe in. I've begun to recite Leo's words, "The plan will kill the fear", when trying to sell the concept of continuing to move forward, even if fearful, to myself and to others.
In upcoming posts called the "Fearless Living Series", I'll spotlight areas of our life where fear may be holding us back and outline possible plans to use in squelching that fear.
Fear is such a life drainer. Take your power back and experience Taking Care Of You through fearless living.
Until next time...Take Care Of You!
