\\ POWERFUL TRANSFORMATIVE TEACHING ON FEAR from the awe inspiring #entrepreneur, #author and #philanthropist Marie Forleo.
We’re all riddled with fear to different degrees – at different points on our #journeys.
۩ fear of being alone;
۩ fear of failure;
۩ fear of disappointment
or otherwise – I know I’ve felt all three at times, as have most of my phenomenal female friends.
But as the lioness, Marie, so eloquently reminds us, we must reframe our fear and activate it as the positive force that it really is.
How Can Fear Be Positive?
If you think about it, fear is just a manifestation of uncertainty – the risk of not achieving something that is hugely important to us. And where does that leave our identity?! Nowhere certain. Nowhere concrete. Nowhere fun.
But here’s the thing – fear is also a pretty draining emotion – if not embraced for what it really symbolises – which leaves us stuck worrying about the past or the future rather than harnessing the fun, fruity and pretty darn hopeful – present.
How Can We Convert Fear Into A Force For Good?
So embrace your fear today by asking yourself what the positive intention behind your fear really is. Maybe it’s soaring ambition, a gorgeous readiness to love or the inner perfectionist that lights your path?
Now refocus your mind on that – magnify it – tenfold – and watch your fear melt into rock – hard – pumping – power ☼
