I thought I’d share something with you that I learned about fear. It’s usually associated with what “might happen”, not what is happening right now. Which means it’s completely made up – not real. It’s not actually happening.
“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” ~ Albert Einstein
So why in the world would we create something that we don’t have any need or desire for in our minds?
Simple. Most of us as children were taught to be afraid as a way of life – don’t run or you’ll fall. Or we think if we don’t worry, again this thinking is associated with what might happen not something that is happening, we’ll get caught out. How crazy is that? Worrying if we don’t worry that we’ll have something to worry about. We are very funny when you think about it.
“If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it’s not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.” ~ Dalai Lama
It’s pretty amazing that we do as well as we do as human beings even though we are taught to live in a perpetual state of fear. It may be low level but it’s usually there. We could waste our whole lives with that. That’s not to say we don’t pay attention to a situation if we need to handle it. Looking for a solution is not the same thing as worrying about it though. These two states of mind create completely different outcomes.
Here in our Book Arb community we are fortunate because we don’t have to wonder if this business works. We know that it does because of the stacks of evidence with the results that are kindly shared on an ongoing basis. Which means we have the certainty factor already dialed in so we don’t need to waste any time worrying or being afraid we won’t succeed. Our success is certain once we keep applying what we have learned & improving on our skills over time.
This allows us to just get on with creating the kind of success we always knew we deserved & can now achieve – automatically.
It is important to build your mind for success as well as your Book Arb system. Find solutions to problems as you go. Remember, it’s a good thing when unexpected situations show up, it means you’re growing as a business and are now presented with the opportunity to take the next step to create even bigger success.
It is exciting & a privilege to share this journey with you. Let’s succeed together.
