What You Resist, Persists

What You Resist, Persists


It's there for all of us.

About a lot of stuff.

I'm afraid that I won't nail my talk tonight.

But when you can embrace the fear, allow it to be a normal part of being human -- something else opens up on the other side of the "fear acceptance.”

The fear starts to dissipate, not having as much punch as before.

Try it.

Speak directly to the fear.

“Hey, thanks for sharing that, fear.

Got it.

You're fear, that's what you do.

I feel you.

That's what I do as a human being.

Now, what's next.”

Then see how you feel.

Microstep: Thank your fear for sharing. Then, do it anyway.
