THE FEAR FROM WITHIN YOU.
I wrote about facing your fear and used an example of doing a bungee This
week I would like to talk about a common fear I have noticed in not only
my clients but something most people experience at some stage of their
life which is SPEAKING UP;
situations are based around what you think the outcome will be.
Sit down with this person and take turns to tell each other 3 things you like about that person. For the person who is receiving the compliment, just say I acknowledge that and thank you very much. Once you have done this and both had turns sharing with each other, I would now invite you to do the same thing, yet this time you are going to tell them 3 things you do not like about this person. Again the person who is receiving is to just say I acknowledge that and thank you very much.
I can her
people saying! That is a stupid exercise why would I want to tell someone
things I do not like about them?
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT YOU LIKE AND WHAT YOU DO NOT LIKE?
If we look at life in general terms there are always two sides to everything we do. Let’s take right and wrong, good or bad, his side her side, he said she said, anger and love, happy and sad and list can go on.
So why is
it, that we do not accept both sides of everything we experience or here?
Sit and really be honest with yourself about the answers to the questions above, on what I have asked or even after trying out the exercise.
A question I asked earlier, so why do we do this?
Well we do this, based only on what we have experienced from our own lives. We also prejudge an outcome, before we have even experienced that situation, based on what we know from our past. We also put up certain expectations about ourselves and others before even allowing this to happen.
My challenge to you is, Face the fear, experience the fear, live through the fear, and allow yourself to live the life you dream.
