I want to talk to you about something I am passionate about which is overcoming your fears. The reason it’s so important is that we only get one chance in life. Every day is a new beginning and when we know that we have infinite possibilities. We can do, have or be anything that we want.
Life gets really good. It gets really exciting. And I want that for you.
Today we are going to talk about thoughts in the past.
Overcoming Fear – Clear Your Fear Video Series Day 2 of 10
I’ve talked about how fear is an emotion and our emotions are derived from our thoughts, so lets take a look about what we are thinking about when our thoughts are in the past rather than our thoughts of now or our thoughts of the future.
Resentments and Regrets
When we think about the past, we can have resentments, we can have regrets, we can have negative memories OR we can have happy memories.
I’ve mentioned before that everything is energy so if we have positive thoughts, that’s going to be positive energy and move us closer to our goals. If we have negative thoughts – that’s negative energy and it’s going to move us away from our goals.
So the idea is to have positive thoughts.
It isn’t just positive thoughts, you can learn to use your positive thoughts as tools to build your future.
It’s really pretty cool stuff.
When we are thinking about the past and our thoughts are negative it doesn’t serve us in any way.
Often times those negative thoughts come in the way of resentments. We resent somebody for something they’ve done or something we perceive they’ve done.
But if we realize that every action that’s been to us, against us, or for us has made us who we are – has made us the perfect and divine creation that we are. Then in a sense that’s something that we can thank people for.
Or at least not let it bother us.
When they do something to us – that’s their Karma. They are doing something to us and maybe we are a victim for a second. But when we allow them to continue to victimize us through resentment, they’re not victimizing us. We are victimizing ourselves.
We are allowing them to continue hurting us. Instead of being the victim, why not be the victor? Put those thoughts aside. Whatever happened, it made you who you are. Move on. There are better times ahead.
What about regrets? Mistakes that we think we’ve made?
When we look back, things happen that we don’t always have the desired outcome that we want. You know?
And that’s o.k. because we still learn.
So if everything that’s not had the desired outcome, everything you’ve looked at as a mistake has a lesson in it for you. If you’ve learned something, if it’s made you stronger. If it’s made you better. If you’ve had any kind of growth in it. Then at that point, it’s become a great lesson.
Greatest Life Lessons
Some of your greatest mistakes turn into your greatest life lessons.
How cool is that?
So look at them as a positive thing, something that has helped you grow, something that has helped shape your life and get you to where you are now.
Then just look back at your happy memories, the good times. Things that have happened in your life. Times that you felt good. Times when you were laughing with your friends. Times when you felt loved.
Those are the times that you want to focus on and think about. Those are the things you want to set your mind to.
There are ten days to the Clear Your Fear video series, so stick with it because it’s one of the most important things you can do.
I would love it if you reach out and connect with me further.
Have the best day ever!
