How to Outwit the Six Ghosts of Fear
Lesson learned around CRITICISM;
After reading this chapter I have become present to my indecision (procrastination) and that it has been about getting things right, making sure it's perfect because the fear related to it is, I now realise, I'm still worrying about what people think, particularly family and friends. Indecision feeding into doubt and fear completely makes sense to me. It's a way to stay in your fear, I haven't decided what to do yet, I don't know what to do, I don't have to take any accountability for my lack of action because I haven't made the decision yet and just want to make the right one! Fear of making the wrong decision has totally been controlling me and is a way for me to still not be 'All In' rather than being 'All In' making some mistakes and learning from them along the way.
The deeper measure too is that being in that fear and indecision about what to do next is stopping creative flow, stopping me being the best me I can be, the thought of the 'best me' is actually a little scary and look, there's that fear again because the only reason it would be scary is because I am concerned about what people might think, how they might be impacted without even considering that actually it would be and probably highly likely would be a positive impact on the people around me rather than a negative one but either way it doesn't matter, I just have to work on what's right for me and how I want to live and go after the things I want in life and remember, it's none of my business what other people think of me!
