Fear…

Fear is a compass telling you where to go… something I came across ages ago & it flashed into my head recently slightly differently – Fear is showing me the next ‘piece’ to work on…

Frankly, I can’t remember what was on my mind, or going on in my life at the time, but, those of you who know me well, know I keep my emotions fairly near the surface & use them as ‘messengers’.

A process I use frequently is ‘back tracking’… ie if I clock that I’m feeling¬†‘at effect’ from something (anything) & it’s impacting on my productivity, I ‘back track’ to when it began, so I can deal with the root cause. Usually we’re talking an hour or two at most, & it’s a helpful way of nipping something in the bud, before it gets lost into the depths… (Funnily enough, like an ache or a pain with the body, deal with it sooner, rather than later & it doesn’t become too integrated into the whole of you… but, I digress!)

I haven’t always been able to do this, & I couldn’t even tell you when I learnt it, but it has been extremely useful. I’m still working on lots that did get integrated into who I am, how I behave & what I think! Lifelong curiosity around the human condition, I call that!

And, I should say, I only mention Fear¬†because it’s something that people mention quite a lot, & I thought it might be useful… Often, if we ‘unpack’ a feeling, we get much more clarity around what to do next, & the feeling dissipates. Fear is just one, try the process with others…
