On today’s Q&A Tuesday we got questions on fear, living and feeling unmotivated.
Let’s start with fear because it is exactly what stops people from taking any kind of action or from stepping out of their comfort zone. It is fear that stops most people from being happy. So how do we deal with fear once and for all?
Most people are in resistance with fear, meaning anytime they have fear approach their minds they start to worry and get upset. The first step to dealing with fear once and for all is to accept fear for what it is. It’s natural we all go through fear and it’s not by accident. Fear is created within us to protect us from danger.
Often times these “negative” emotions we are going through actually have a message to share with us. There is something to be learned from our fear, anxiety, depression or stress. Rather than trying to destroy fear, listen to it, what is it offering you? Once you know what it is the fear wants, why the fear is here, you can begin to replace it with something else.
What is the quickest way to shake off a bad feeling?
Move your body, negativity is in our minds. Lose your thoughts and focus on what’s going on in your body. Move, exercise, dance or play whatever you can do to break the pattern. Same goes for feeling unmotivated, step one is to move your body and break your physical pattern, step two is to shift your focus by asking yourself a new question. What do I want right now? What’s my ultimate goal and why? What can I do right now to get myself closer?
What does living mean to you?
It’s different for everyone, but if you can get clear on the essence of what life means to you, all the sudden you have a whole new level of self-awareness.
