“bbb “… but..because… there are barriers… beyond which we can BE so much more than the warning signs we see or imagine.
“Bbbb” those stammering moments where hesitation and fear grips. Fear prepares us to adapt to possibilities. Acknowledging a fear allows me to dissect it –
- Is fear real or imagined?
- Will I survive if fear happens?
- What am I expecting?
- What am I predicting?
- What do I see happening in this situation?
- What conclusions am I jumping to?
My expectations and evaluations influence how I perceive and respond to fears.
Because …. the analysis paralysis – grip of the mind halting the ability to act. Harsh self evaluations and others mean words killing a self esteem fostering doubt that becomes inertia. The pasts luggage burying or hiding it owners under the excuse because….
Does because hold a life to hostage?
“I wont!” “I cannot” a barrier real or imagined present.
“I might…” breaking down of the barrier.
“I will…” seeing beyond barrier.
“I am ” what barrier? Progress action oriented.
Beyond is the space of possibilities where potential lives as Bruce Lee said …
“Ever since I was a child I have had this
instinctive urge for expansion and growth.
To me, the function and duty of a quality
human being is the sincere and honest
development of one’s potential.”
In being present and accepting its possible to see the bbbs and become more than our fears, becauses and barriers.
May your bbbs not limit your potential.
