My clients are smart, strong, and often fearful.
“I don’t know what do to next.”
“What if this doesn’t work out?”
I sense their fear; their concern in making their mark on the world. I gently remind them that fear has played a critical role in their collective survival. It keeps them alive. It makes them take notice. It makes them realize when evasive maneuvers are required.
It also keeps them from showing up in the world in the way they want to.
I feel fear just like everyone else. While writing this post, I got a phone call that disarmed me a little. It meant I would have a bit less money in my pocket. So I understand fear.
I’ve also been taught and trained to appreciate fear for what it is, acknowledge that it is present, ask for its’ wise council and give it one seat at the table – and not more.
Think of your life as having its’ own wise council with six seats at the table. How many seats are you giving to fear?
You have a choice here. You have a choice to decide who gets a seat at the table.
I choose to give fear one seat at my table. I intentionally have her seated between her creativity and love. What they create together is nothing short of magic.
How many seats are you giving to fear? Who could you seat her next to?
