Release of fear solves most issues.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out for you?

We all find ourselves embroiled in situations we don’t like. Often the best way out may be unclear. We feel stuck and don’t know how to get unstuck.

Usually, a large component of our discomfort in the situation is fear. Fear we’ll never be free of the issue; fear we may miss opportunities while we’re distracted by the problem; fear we’ve messed up, fear we may offend others, fear we might make the wrong choice; fear any action we take may be irrevocable. There are so many ways for us to be afraid.

Our fears are an emotional reaction. They prevent us from seeing the problem and potential solutions clearly. If we can understand our fears and get past them, then choosing our path forward is simply weighing our options based on merit and/or what feels right.

Today’s message reminds me that my fears only complicate already difficult situations. When I’m willing to own my fears and let them go, I simplify my life. Releasing fear, I free my potential and unlock my options.

How about you? How does fear affect you?
