Do you feel stuck in your career?
WHAT’S STOPS YOU FROM WHAT YOU WANT?
Are you bored with your job or your company or your boss?
And you don’t know what to do?
Most people KNOW what to do, but they don’t do it!
They know they SHOULD make a decision, and take action towards it, true?
If this is you, you are in the right place.
So the question becomes “What stops you from making a decision?”
Your brain, as a human being, is trained to protect yourself. It’s a survival tool.
When you are in that place, you start to “rationalize”. This means you tell yourself a story, using soft words. Examples:
When you do that, you find excuses and you lie to yourself.
You set up for less than you are. You want to improve the quality of your life? Then say the TRUTH; be honest with yourself. This is the starting point for making progress in your life.
Here are some examples of being honest with yourself:
- I’m not old. I have lot of experience
- My boss is not better than I am, I could do what he does, and even better
- My retirement is in fifteen years, I can’t stay bored all that time!
Behind this rationalization, deeper inside us, we feel Fears!
In fact, most of us feel a combination of several fears not being enough, rejection...over the course of our lives. Fear is hard-wired into every human being - And it will NEVER change.
Does that mean ‘there is nothing to do?’
I can teach THE SECRET!
THE SECRET IS TO LEARN HOW TO USE FEAR
INSTEAD OF LETTING FEAR USE YOU!
- What is your biggest fear about asking for promotion or getting another job?
- What benefit has this fear given you in the past? Were you protecting yourself from disappointment?
- Why be free of this fear now?
For example, if you are thinking “It’s no use trying,” then your biggest fear may be fear of failure. The benefit this fear has given you in the past is that it may have push you to do only things you were sure to succeed. The reason you want to be free of this fear now is because it is holding you back from ever achieving what you really want.
Often times, the easiest way to eliminate fear is to simply recognize that it is there and that it is not serving you and helping you towards your goals. It’s true that FEAR is really False Evidence Appearing Real.
