Think & Grow Rich Lessons

Fear ran my own life for many years. It’s been tough this was the chapter that read when first started think and grow rich lessons many years ago now. Fear was holding back from many areas as I had listened to the junk from the well-meaning contacts in life. I had listened to the junk that shortness of breath breath owing to my own asthma was a sign of aids,

I was deeply scared when first started owing to the very physical nature which was involved at home school growing up at times I can get a flash saying watch it or this will get physical. The person who I was with happens to be someone who uses fear tactics when they want their way. They will start about a area and will eventually turn around saying if you don’t do this then I am going to report You to the manager.

Calling people names and more it’s all part of their way of using fear to control You and run your life. I’ve lived under those conditions before scared of my own father, scared of talking up in front of family and not feeling safe to talk with them, that was always the hardest part feeling too unsafe to talk about what was going on.

For years friends was a battle for me, the physical violence area has made it difficult to talk until I am feeling safe around someone. It’s finding those who can put it at ease rather than letting that feeling run my own life. It’s being myself being comfortable as the Ben I am, personal choice of underwear in public, swimmers, clothing it’s ok. Someone can have an opinion it’s their choice but they may not know who Ben is.

If I was really going to let fear stop me then I would of let my own physical health challenges stop me in my tracks saying I’ve got this health challenge. There are those who let their fear of being health challenged stop them. You see the signs at amusment parks saying don’t use this ride if you have a back injury, it’s all fear of someone getting hurt again and wanting a quick buck.

Thank you my amazing friends and family for life from mentoring for free for helping to walk away from fear, to have it run my own life less. A huge thank you to Ken Klemm and Linda and Michael Dlouhy for your own love. Thank you to my wonderful loving wife for life Jenny for all Your love.

Your friend and mentor for life,

Big hugs

Ps at the moment my wife is in hospital. It’s an amazing opportunity to get more used to being a stay at home dad. It’s shown that can do what needs to be done and I am ok. Some parent’s would be too scared to watch their children on their own when the other is too unwell others just go ok and move on. They know that family has their back but also know they are ok on their own.

Pps some parents are too scared to take the kids to a hobby that share with their kids, others will go yep they will be ok.
