Fearless Living

Either, we are living in comfort zone, or we are not, we are pushing ourselves forward. What do you think? Where majority of the people live? Of course, you would say, we are living in our comfort zone. We eat same foods every day, we go to school and job same route, we hang around with same people every day, we wear same clothes, brush our hair same way, use same make up strategies. No wonder our life ends up the same way, nothing changes.

In order to change that, imagine yourself doing same things every day. You cut yourself of to know somebody more interesting, you cut yourself of new hair style that would fit you better, you cut yourself of knowing how this new route to your job is much easier and quicker to go to.

Commit yourself today to do the something different, to implement something different in your everyday routine. You can do such things as go to the park on your day off, not bringing your phone with you, just inhaling oxygen, reminding yourself how important it is to connect to mother nature again. Go to shop and buy a pair of trousers that you would never do. Go to shop and buy yourself a gift, gift for trying make things happen.

You are not a laboratory rat. You”re a human being. You can master your fears. But first you have to know them. What are you fearful? What are your most fearful thoughts? Come on! Be aware of that. And go for it feeling full fearful, and notice what will happen, nothing, fear will disappear, and you will come to realization that this were just your thoughts.

I will tell you now how fearful I was being before my Bungee-Jumping. I knew I wanted to do that, and it”s fun, feels amazing. I woke up that day excited, I couldn”t believe I was going to do that, but as time was getting closer I was getting more nervous. The moment when I was standing on the edge of the biggest bridge in Croatia, I would never forget. I felt tremendous fear. My heart was racing like crazy, I thought I would die. It took me more that 5 min to jump over the bridge.

The interesting thing happen the moment I jumped, I felt total bliss, I was flying. They wouldn”t do such thing if it”s dangerous and lots of people died, right? So, everything that is happening you created in your own head. Since that day nothing else was the same. I completely changed when it comes to fear. I am feeling fear every day of course, like everyone else, but I am going for it anyway. And guess what, feels amazing, my confidence grew tremendously.

I wrote a Blog Post about Feeling the fear and doing it anyway. It is here if you wanna read. I also recommend great great book by Susan Jeffers called: “Feel the fear and do it anyway” that I loved so so much. You can check out book here.

No direction is wrong, just pick the one and go for it full hearted.

Lets imagine you faced some fear and you stayed alive. Nothing happened, except you grew as a person. Now you are on your Wheel of Freedom. You feel free, happy, satisfied, confident, you feel like the world is yours. That”s how people feel when they face their fears. So, you are on your wheel of freedom, you are not trying to prove yourself to anyone, you are not trying to prove anything. You are not trying to hide, to save your face, put up a facade, not trying to get caught, not trying to cover up. You are simply being you. When you are on your Wheel of Freedom, the whole world is better for it, and you feel free.

I love to read books like this. It gets you thinking what fear does to ourselves, to our lives, what is life all about, and why we should face our fears. It is fascinating. Fearless Living is the book that I read, by Rhonda Britten, and got me inspired to write about the fears again. I loved the book, if you would like to read and check out the same, you can do it so here.

The beauty of Fearless Living is that as you master your own fear, you”ll be in a better position to look after the people you care about when they”re the ones who need help. And you won”t lose your own sense of self as you reach out to them.

But first, if you need some sort of help, ask the right people, find the one who already living the way you wanted to. Right people at the right time helps you summon the courage to show more of who you are to the world. Yet when the most of us attempt to connect with people, both those who are already important to us and those we”re hoping to get to know – we avoid truly revealing ourselves.

I hope I inspired you to take action. Face those things that bother you and set yourself free. Life will never be the same.

Do something differently

The only thing we can effectively control is our reactions to whatever life hands us.

FOCUS ON THE PROCESS INSTEAD OF THE OUTCOME.

GOALS ARE NOT OUR LIFE! NOW IS OUR LIFE!

We are not simply machines trying to reach our destination. We are hearts and souls vibrantly connected to everyone and everything around us each moment of the day!

To be spiritual is not to get out of the world, but to be more fully in it – connected, joyful, and abundant.

There is something incredibly magnetic about people who thoroughly enjoy their lives, who are relaxed about outcome, of all their endeavors, and who have an aura of expansion and appreciation. These people automatically seem to draw to themselves the better things in life.

Joy comes from expanding our abilities. We are not meant to be apathetic. We are meant to be used. We are meant to fill the world with caring and excellence in whatever field we choose. When we go for the proverbial jugular, however, it”s our clue that we really don’t feel we are enough. At such times. At such times we need to keep reminding ourselves…

I AM ENOUGH.

I AM ENOUGH.

I AM ENOUGH.

I AM ENOUGH.

I AM ENOUGH.

FOCUS ON INTERNAL JOY AND SATISFACTION

The dictionary definition of success says nothing about love, joy, contribution, appreciation, and abundance – all internal measures of a life well lived. So as we go about cultivating the externals of our lives we do nothing to cultivate the internals. Again, it”s not that external success is bad; it”s simply that when we focus only outward, we lose the essence of a life well lived and we push away one of our greatest pillars of strength – our Spiritual magnificence.

In our society, we are not trained to use the power of the Spiritual part of who we are – and it is a great power indeed. This is the hidden strength that emerges to lift a car if a loved one is trapped underneath; this is the hidden strength that emerges when we face really difficult times and come out enriched. The spiritual part of who we are holds wisdom beyond our wildest dreams that can lead us to exactly where we need to go for our highest good – if we listen

Because we are not trained to use the power that lies within, we feel weak and overwhelmed much of the time

If we could train that muscle to the Higher Self, we would find our strength returning, and life wouldn’t seem like such a struggle.

In addition, we wouldn’t be so addicted to external gratification. If something didn’t go right in the world out there, we wouldn’t be tossed around like a puppet on a string. We would have a place of peace to which we could return over and over again, the place that gives as the needed assurance that on a Higher plane,

IT”S ALL HAPPENING PERFECTLY.

Embrace the moment

“Anything worth doing is worth doing badly.”

Our goal is to enjoy, not to achieve perfection!

In the end, we have to stop using other people to fill us up. We need to create our own happiness by detaching from our dependency on others. If peace in your heart is dependent on how other people are going to act, you are living in the realm of the Lower Self and you will constantly be in conflict. As you cut that cord, you are free to live in the realm of the Higher Self where your happiness is dependent only on the realization that you are powerful and loving person who has much to give to this world.

Sometimes things work out the way we expect them to, and sometimes they don’t. Whether they do or whether they don’t, holding on to expectations creates an enormous amount of worry, conflict, and struggle.

We don’t enjoy the preparation for our outdoor party as we concern ourselves about the weather. We don’t enjoy the miracle of our children”s growth as we worry about how they will turn out. We don’t enjoy the abundance in our lives now as we worry about the future of our investments. We twist ourselves all out of shape to please our mate so that our marriage will last “until death do us part.” In essence, we lose the freedom to soar that comes from enjoying the vast riches that life has to offer in the here and now.

What if you knew your life would work beautifully even if it rained the day of the party, even if your children didn’t turn out the way you hoped, even if you lost money in your investments, even if your marriage didn’t last? When we let go of our expectations about events in our life being a certain way, we can allow ourselves the peaceful thought that it”s all happening perfectly no matter how it turns out.

Embrace peace

IT”S ALL HAPPENING PERFECTLY!

If you focus on the learning and growing instead of the anger and fear, you lighten up. Life becomes simpler. The reason things happen the way they do unfolds just in the process of living itself. Remember:

While none of us understands the Grand Design, we can commit to using all our experiences, good or bad, as the building blocks of a powerful and loving life. Then it is, indeed, all happening perfectly!

Be careful what you ask for. You might get it!

Since we don’t know in our logical mind what is for our highest good, we indeed have to be very careful about what we ask for. The job that we asked for might turn out to be the proverbial job from hell! The mate we asked for might be the mate from hell! And so on.

When I don’t get something I had been setting my sights on, I have learned to remind myself that obviously something else will come along that will be for my highest good. This wasn’t it. And I stop hanging on to any disappointment I had. If I don’t remind myself of this higher possibility, I suffer much unnecessary pain when things don’t work out as I had planned.
