The Power of Fear Over Your Life
TuPac said in a scene in a movie, “if you are scared, then say you are scared!” We won’t go into the details of the scene, but acknowledgement of fear is rarely done because it happens so suddenly.
It can happen like a bolt or jolt of lightening and Bob Proctor called it the terror barrier. When we get to doing something new, this sensation of fear takes over so swiftly and sometimes indiscreetly that we simply don’t know it.
We (our brain and body) begin to make clever excuses of what is going on and why we are no longer taking action.
Example: I wrote a book back in 2012, a friend wanted to proof it, and before they got to page 20, they told me they had to stop because my english was just too TERRIBLE!
I was moved to paralyzed state on the project because I’d put my energy in it and those words coming from a friend was a great energy zapper.
This was even after having it edited professionally. I know my english is not the best, but I thought, I’m focused on the content. Nevertheless, the friends words prevailed and all I could think about is everyone stopping at page 10 or 20 saying the same thing.
The fear held me back and needless to say, the book was never published. That is the power of fear over your life. Fear can and will make you think you’re not good enough. It’ll make you think you have nothing to say and no questions to ask.
Fear makes us LOSE our temper and get violently angry at our brothers and sisters. Fear makes us stop other people from doing a good deed in the world.
Fear doesn’t like people who don’t look or act like us, makes us fit in and go with the status quo, and it does all of this under the guise of making us think we’re making an educated logical decision.
If you’re ever doubting something, especially something you were once so sure of, look for fear, he is sure to be close by.
