A Special Passage for Dr. Theo
From The Brain Block: Overcoming the 7 Hidden Barriers to Success – “There is nothing more miserable than constantly living in fear, challenges are perceived as threats, at the slightest deviation from the safe and familiar alarms go off and hair stands on end the space outside the comfort zone feels like a minefield Fear keeps you confined in the cage of security.”

We are all born with fear. It’s a complex but natural occurrence in the human existence. Fear alerts us to risk. Fear tells us to stop what we are doing and to be scared. If we listen to the fear it will go away but then the opportunity for growth goes away also. We can stay confined or we can choose to overcome it and push forward.
Pushing Forward to Realize our Dreams
The size of our dreams is directly related to the size of our fear. The bigger our fear the smaller the size of our dreams. If we dream big our fear starts shrinking. As we start to age our fear grows parallel with our responsibilities. Our dreams need to be adjusted to fit our new realities. If we feel the risk is too big we may never take the necessary actions to make something happen.
There are strategies we can inhabit to reduce our fears. We build our realities within our own minds.
We Deserve Love
Loving ourselves can be a struggle. Our survival instincts want to eat our self- esteem to make us safer. If we learn to love ourselves fully we will overcome fear and experience life to its fullest.
