When we were children, to most of us the World was a happy place, a place of excitement and discovery. When we started to grow into Adulthood, life got more serious, we were taught to become “responsible”
We learnt that throwing ice cream at your sister was “wrong” and that leaving marbles on the stairs for people to trip over was well, downright dangerous.
Instead of making our own laughter, we learnt control and we modeled those around us.
As we learnt, we learned more to “conform” to society and to “fit in” with others.. We leaned that our first crush at school was never going to marry us, and that babies were not delivered out of the sky by a giant stork.
Our schools taught us not only the education of the text book, but the education of conformity, those who “ducked” it were looked on as weirdo’s, and those who excelled at conforming, were looked on as heroes.
Learning how to be free never entered our minds and hearts as we already thought
we were free, living the dream, but this was the dream of someone else.
We also started to build up this catalogue. A mental catalogue of memories. Broken
hearts and broken dreams. We learned that we can’t have everything we wanted and that it was just too “ridiculous” to even try.
Best to get a job, do your time just like everyone else and live this idea of a happy life. Is there a better way?..
How To Be Free – Let Go And Start Living
“If money were no object, what would you do?”… If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing”.
“This is stupid. It’s better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than to have a long life, spent in a miserable way”.
Letting go, perhaps is one of the hardest things a human being can do. Some memories are so painful, they haunt us forever. However, by letting go of our past, we can often begin to rebuild our future.
If you really want to know how to be free, the first way is to let go of the past, and realise that we got where we are today, by the things that WE did, by thinking the thoughts that WE thought.
Yes, there were outside influences. Maybe an abusive partner, a negative spouse, limited funds., etc, etc. However these were all outside influences that we let shape our life up until this stage.
We are the instigators of our own destiny. Everything we think and do, every decision we make, is shaping our future.
How To Be Free – “It’s Not What Happens To You, But How You React To It That Matters”
How to be free in an unfree world? The first step is to stop blaming yourself for whatever has gone wrong in your life. you are human, not a machine. We humans have faults, it’s impossible for people to live their lives and not screw up now and again.
How To Be Free – It’s Time To Forgive Yourself
Stop beating yourself up over something, you can no longer change. Whatever happened, happened. Now is the time to move on and let go. Secondly, think about how life could be, if money were no object. What would you do ?
Because it makes no sense to spend each day things you don’t want to do. If you hate your job, get one that you could love. If you hate your business, change it to one that inspires you.
Believe me. Life is short and many people go to their grave with regrets. Just before death is not the time to want to change things. You can change in a heartbeat, you can change in an instant. Things will change, the moment you DECIDE.
Think about it. you are a long time dead. Live your life with PASSION. Make each day an exiting journey. Don’t laugh, it can be done.. you just have to decide that today is the day.
How to be free in an uncertain world? – Clean out the closet of your mind. Forgive yourself for the past. Reward yourself for being YOU. And move on, live your life as if money were no object, do the things you love, and you will see…
It will all be OK in the end. If it isn’t, then it’s not the end. Have a wonderful day, these are the best days, hours and minutes of your life.
Fear is probably the single biggest killer of a person’s dreams out there. Fear can paralyze people and shatter your dreams in an instant if you let it. If fear were a real person, it would be hunted down, locked up and the key would be thrown away.
Fear is invisible. But comes to life when you give it presence, then you actually make it real.
To live in fear is to live a second class life. most of what we fear or worry about never actually happens, however by giving fear a place to live in our hearts and mind, this only increases it’s strength and overall power over us. The more you think about something, the more power you give it.
Fear Of Fear – Why Some Fears Are Positive
On the other side of that coin, the less power you give to fear, the less likely it is that it will materialize and stop you doing the things you want.
Do we need fear?. On occasion, yes of course. If you see a lion running toward you and you just kept on walking toward it totally fearless, the chances
are even with the best karma in the world, you will still end up getting severely eaten.
However, that aside and a distinct shortage of roaming lions in our country, by being fearless we no longer wear the look of a “victim”. Muggers often
look for people with a “victim” persona, this is a look of fear, an “easy to intimidate” look about them.
How to keep fear at bay: Make a list of all of the things you would do if you weren’t afraid. Don’t worry about how silly this sounds, just think of all the things you really wanted to do, but were too afraid to do them.
Now, think about the most important thing on that list only. Close your eyes and imagine yourself doing that one thing. First see yourself doing this in your mind, how does it look?, now FEEL yourself doing this thing, how does it feel?
Lock in these feelings for several minutes, seeing yourself doing the thing you first feared, then feeling the pleasure of achieving it. What we are doing here is making the pleasure of seeing and feeling yourself doing that which you originally feared, a habit that will eventually replace the fear of doing it.
Do this several times a day for as many days as it takes to remove the fear.
Fear Of Fear – Negative Tricks Of The Imagination
Good thoughts and bad thoughts can’t live in the same place at the same time. With practice you can replace those negative fears with the thoughts of you taking action, doing the thing you fear and feeling the pleasure.
I want you to link the pleasure of doing this thing with the silliness of fearing doing it. Because most fears are just that, they are negative tricks of the imagination.
It will take time to make something a habit. It probably took time for you to be fearful. We are replacing those thoughts of fear, with thoughts of pleasure.
By constantly doing this you can eradicate most of those fears and carry on life without them.
We all have the option to give out thoughts power, we can either choose to make our lives fearful or abundant, the difference is often just a switch in our thinking.
If your mind is dominated by good things, you will attract good things, on the other hand if your mind is dominated by fear, you will live in fear and attract negativity, as this is what fear feeds on.
Fear of fear is real to us. However, living in fear can drain you physically, make you sick and put your life on hold, change the way you look at fear today and start to live positive.
