Fear it will run our lives when we let it take over our lives,many have let fear run their lives and it has stopped them dead in their tracks of achievement. We must learn to lock up that fear and put it aside, as my good friend and mentor Ken Klemm has said “lock it up in a goal cell and throw away the key”. Leaving that fear alone, for many of us including myself spent our lives living in fear.

We listen to the naysayers who have lived their own lives in fear and attempt to get us under their control from fear. They use the destructive negative emotions to run their own and others lives. It may be someone who has caused us a significant emotional pain.

Often they will make use of the following emotions to run their own lives and to take control of our lives too. They are The seven major negative emotions (To be avoided)
The emotion of FEAR
The emotion of JEALOUSY
The emotion of HATRED
The emotion of REVENGE
The emotion of GREED
The emotion of SUPERSTITION
The emotion of ANGER

They will stop someone or express a destructive opinion about a person’s plans and that person will stop working towards their goal or dream that they have just spoke to someone about. It may be planning to buy a new car, planning to build a model train layout, their family plan, a holiday, what they want to do with their lives. They hear a comment based on fear and bang its all gone, they stop dead in their tracks.

For many years that was how lived life, that would express an idea that had, to someone about buying a new car or similar and would hear all the wrong reason for the achievement, often that opinion was stemming from fear when would hear the comments. Many a times when have expressed an idea or opinion its been to the wrong person. Those ideas are then gone to wayside unless You have enough belief in You idea to make it happen and have those who support You to achievement. For many years some of us rarely have had that in our lives.

Thanks to mentoring for free for allowing me to hear those destructive ideas that were coming across from those who were the wrong types of influences within my own life. Allowing me to realise yes sometimes it may be needed to be scared about an area, we still need to achieve that or do that even against the fear. For many years I allowed that fear of being a dad and a relationship run my own life owing to the emotional pain from many years.

I had to stop letting that pain run my own life and learn to see what was better now. Focusing on that positive, having a son on the way that gives a chance to correct and be that dad, mentor, husband that had always wanted to have within my own life.

Thank You to my amazing, wonderful, loving friends and family, who have helped me to learn to love again. To become more and to a better person, to let my own love be free and share that with those within my own life. Thank You Ken Klemm, Linda and Michael Dlouhy for Your ongoing guidence love and support, to my own wife Jenny thanks for being that amazing wife, mother to our son and being the best wife could ever ask for.

Your friend for life,
