Ghosts of Fear
How does it make me feel? I have a decision to make. I have an
action I need to take. I feel anxious. I feel uncomfortable. I want
a diversion. I allow my mind to float into something else. I feel
better. I no longer feel anxiety or being uncomfortable. Until later.
What happened to me? I ran out of time, didn't get the decision
or action done, and now regret what happened!
I figured out a way to feel good, in the moment, but now I feel
worse than I did at the time.
Now I get angry. At myself. I didn't even come to grips with the
reason I was feeling anxious or uncomfortable. I just simply
sought out something else to do, to avoid it anyway.
Over time I continue to chip away at these moments, and,
one-by-one avoid the fear and instead focus on my self-talk and
why I am making these decisions and taking these actions.
Being ten-foot-tall and bulletproof not only against negativity
in the noise around us, but also against the fears inside, from our
damaged programming of the past, and confidence in myself and the
plan I prepared.
with gratitude and in service,
Tony and Lisa Koker
P.S. How many times have you said your self-talk today?
P.P.S. Is your self-talk based upon your WHY? You really do need a
99.999 % WHY.
