The Topic of FEAR has been coming up lately with clients, and in fact, it was the topic of discussion in this week's Platinum Pro Coaching Business zoom call.
I'm the type of person who usually faces fear head-on. I know that most times fear is false evidence appearing real.
But I gotta be honest with the divide happening in the world today; I'm feeling some good old fashion fear!
I've always believed it's important to let people live their own lives, make their own choices.
To me, it appears like there's been a line drawn in the sand.
On one side, you have people who believe that everyone should get the shot to protect everyone else and that it's safe to do so.
On the other side, you have those who believe we should all be able to decide what we put in our own bodies and can provide a ton of studies showing how unsafe getting the jab is.
It's pitting family members against each other, respected doctors are being blackballed, and there is fighting in the streets.
I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling the fear!!
Fear is an emotion triggered by a perceived threat. It's the flight or fight response. Without it, many of our ancestors would have been eaten by sabre tooth tigers. The problem is that most of us aren't coming across many tigers these days.
I used to worry a lot about the future, and boy, when you let fear into the party, man, it can sure do a number on you. It's the beginning of creating all of those worst-case scenarios. You know what I'm talking about. What if this happens and it leads to this, which leads to that. Head games overload!!
Through working on myself, becoming a coach and getting my own coach, I have the tools needed to quickly address it when FEAR rears its ugly head.
I remind myself daily that we only grow from challenges. And that I don't want to be the same person this time next year...I want to continue to evolve.
So if you are like me and you are feeling fearful with all the turmoil happening around us, remember, "If we are growing, we're always going to be out of our comfort zone" -John Maxwell.
