I have missed blogging for quite a long time as I have been busy exploring my own world and conquering it. I should do this.
Oh this….I said I should. Do you know that expressing “I should” is quite a loser? Power is taken away from you once you utter it according to Susan Jeffers, Ph.D. It is a sign that you have some fears that you cannot face. A better way of saying that, is, “I could conquer the world!” Then the universe will give you out power. Even the words: “I hope” sound weak. Instead, one could utter, “I know”. English speaking people normally retort “I know” in their conversations. Is it because they are powerful individuals? It makes sense. Suffice it to say, they maybe are happy in their lives. But then seriously and kidding aside, verbalizing “I know” with conviction is powerful.
According to Susan Jeffers again, the phrase: “I hope I will get a raise”, is merely a victim’s phrase. It puts you up to worry. While saying “I know I will get a raise”, you sense calmness and peace. The way you express yourself or say things defines you. They also point towards the fears you have. So I would like to share something about conquering your fears.
Reflect on: Taking responsibility of your own life.
More often, we blame others over our failures, on our miseries. We play the victims. And most of us do not understand the concept. Once you embrace taking responsibility of your experiences in life, you will become familiar with the dynamics of overcoming your fears.
Just take this as an example. A lady friend, who is out there, in one part of the world, has great job, nice house, a loving man. But persistently whine about her former husband, that he is driving her life miserable, accusing him of being unjust, not extending son support, blah blah. That the son is turning his back and a lot of other complaints. Do you think she is responsible of her own life? She is not but acting as a victim. She is giving away her power into something. Blaming outside forces for any misfortune is passing on all your power to them, thus giving rise to your pain.
In the first place, it is your life….The more you ask “What will I do?” the more you feel your agony. Stop holding fears by using words with great impact leading to a better quality of your life, whether you are afraid of making decisions, being alone, ageing, etc. You could say: I know I can handle it! Shout it to the universe and say YES!!
Ha ha! Cheers!
I have read Susan Jeffers’ book about fears (from my collection of books), but these are the only things that retained in my mind. Anyways, you can buy it at https://www.amazon.com for only $4. You can learn a lot from the book.
Till next blog!
