Fear cuts deeper than swords

Fear cuts deeper than swords

Aria (Game of Thrones)

^ Guess which book I’m currently reading

I was thinking about fear the other day and the amount of opportunities it has cost me

Fear of rejection mostly

My fear of rejection in the past has led me not to pitch multiple sales in my personal training days (and I wondered why I didn’t get many clients)

In more recent times I never used to message my matches on the dating apps…

And everything in between

Fear will paralyze you in the moment, make you feel sick with worry before hand and fill you with regret afterwards

All for what? A very creative imagination of stuff that probably wont happen…

At least if you take action on your fear the worst that can happen is failure

Rather than worry and regret

Regret will last a lot longer than the stab wound of failure any day

At least with failure you can say you tried

Thank you for exposing me

Thank you for exposing me

2020 as we know wasn’t the best year…

I had some ups and downs but funny enough I got to travel more in 2020 than I have any other year

Most of us are glad to see the end of it,

But after some reflection
I’m grateful that it happened

It exposed me
It left me vulnerable
And I know that I’m not as strong as I thought I was…

It’s easy to be resistant in easy times
It’s easy to have a positive mind in good times

But we never truly know what we are made of until the shit turns sideways

I know I have work to do.

Thank you 2020.

Who are you beyond the labels.

Who are you beyond the labels.

Who Am I.

Is the question I was told to ask myself today on the Wake Up Warrior Challenge.

Who Am I?

Who am I beyond the labels I was given?

Who am I beyond the stories I tell myself.

Who we are is normally the story we tell ourselves the most.

The storey we believe the most.

You are not worthy – Is Just a story
You are a failure – Is just a story
You areā€¦ Is the story you tell yourself.

Who are you?

Failure is for reflection

Failure is for reflection

It’s easy to go into self destruct mode when we fail at something.

We think of all the things that made us stupid, we think of how everything could of gone better, then we just beat ourselves up.

This is not healthy, it won’t change anything and you will not improve in the future

Look at what went wrong, but without the self destruction

Yeah my speech could have gone better so I’ll practice more in the future

Not your bad at speeches you should quit your not worthy of anything.

Lift yourself up, dont drag yourself down

2020 isn’t over yet

2020 isn’t over yet

So don’t give up on it.

Yeah things haven’t gone your way

So what?

A pilot doesn’t always have a good landing

But they dont blame it on the year

And they don’t just throw in the towel

It’s not been the best year for anyone

Yet there is still time to make a better landing

Don’t blame external events, how we respond today (not next year) will set us up for a better tomorrow
