"If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." -Dr. Wayne Dyer


One of the most common questions that people talk about and that people ask me is some variation on How can I overcome fear and take a chance?

We all fear change and the risks it carries, but I have to say that everything significant that I've ever experienced has involved change.  Our souls want to expand and grow. When we stay with the familiar, just because its familiar, we are responding to a fear of failure that doesn't support our growth.  If you believe it will work out, you'll see opportunities. If you believe it won't, you will see obstacles.

What if there is no such thing as failure?  Failing is a judgement that we humans place on a given action. What if we substitute this attitude: You cannot fail, you can only produce results.  Then the most important question to ask yourself is, "what do you do with the results you produce?"  Is it better to jump in and experience life than to stand on the sidelines of life fearing that something might go wrong.

Some 2,300 or so years ago, the great spiritual master Patanjali offered the kind of advice that speaks volumes.  He said " When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds, your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world."

So when you step back and examine your limiting belief, we can recognize that nothing can stand in our way of our goals and dreams but us.  By remembering that fear is the acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real, we can step past it and become who and what we want to be.  Anxiety, stress, fear, and anger do not exist independently of you in the world.  They simply do not exist in the physical world 🌎 even though we talk about them as if they do.  Embrace faith and fear will withdraw from our lives.  If you shine the light on darkness, the darkness dissolves.
