“Build a man a fire, and he’ll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life.” ― Terry Pratchett
Fear is a natural response to certain kinds of stimuli. And many of us respond to fear in a pretty common way that we know as “fight or flight.” The problem is, regardless of which of these options we take, we are often simply reacting to the emotional energy we are feeling, without necessarily doing a full “sanity check” to ensure that the reaction is justified.
It turns out that most of our fears are actually just messages that come from our ego-mind, and because the ego-mind is always on the lookout for circumstances that appear similar to unpleasant, dangerous, or threatening situations from our past, these messages usually have an air of urgency, which triggers fear within us. If we stop and examine the current situation very closely, we often come to realize that it is just a “false flag”. However, if we react before we examine the situation, we can easily make matters much worse.
Alas, it seems that fear is here to stay! There will probably always be something to trigger your “fight or flight” response. But if you can tune into the fiery passion of your soul, then you can learn to live audaciously, no matter what is going on in your life. Join David and his guest The Queen of Feeling Fabulous, Rochel Lawson, to learn some tips on how to conquer your fear, and light yourself up with the internal fire of passion.
