Flip the Fear

BY BOB SHENEFELT

 

It is amazing how much fear is out there in the world. It is amazing how often fear creeps up in my own way. It is amazing how less creative, at peace, and ultimately productive I am when I am faced with fear. When I take time to check in and see where my life is at, and what is most important, who I am, and why I am here, I often can put that fear into perspective, put it into context. When I do that, I have a little bit more peace. I have a little bit more vision. I have a little bit more faith. When I am in that feeling and rise above the issues, even for a few minutes, I find what matters most are bigger things, more productive things, and the fear begins to go away. Fear can be a great driver, and I don't know if it can ever be totally eliminated. Every anger, fear, and frustration is a learning opportunity. Expedite the drama and flip the fear into something useful.  Replace the fear with asking yourself, "What can I do today to move on to bigger and better things?"  I'm asking this and changing my day.  So can you.  Before you know it, your day will be amazing!
