Transformation: freedom from anxiety
Consider that the biggest obstacle standing in the way between ourselves and our goals is FEAR. Fear and anxiety can effect all of us at some point in our lives. It doesn't matter how successful, accomplished, or courageous we are, fear and anxiety can strike and blind us beyond belief. Even without the fear factor, people tend to set limits for themselves. Tack on fear to the formula, and it can stop us dead in our tracks. We allow fear to determine how much we will risk and limit the range in which we live. Understanding the unwarranted power and control of fear in our lives is the first step toward breaking the force.
First, I want you to understand that it is OKAY to feel fearful or anxious. Allow yourself to feel it rather than suppress it. Second, I want you to understand that everyone else has the same exact fears as you. Once you realize that we all have the same fears and anxieties, you begin to stop worrying and begin to feel less pressure. Once this pressure has been elevated, we now have a sense of freedom to perform at our highest capability. Energy that was once employed by fear is now freed up to focus on yourself and your goals.
