Yo – what’s up Fear Facer?
New Week, new opportunities to face some fears and grow some.
Yesterday’s Fear Facing, video down below. For sure was a great fail experience. It made me realize how confused I was about some pieces of the content. Speaking it all out loud in one session, without allowing myself to constantly stop and correct small stuff, was so insightful.
Routine #3 – Daily Fear Facing
– Unsocial going social
This weekend was a bit special, was so focused on sitting inside writing all weekend. No real socializing beside my public speaking practice. And, to be frank, that whole thing shook me up some. I felt like I had so so much left to work on before being able to pull it off. Which put me in a bit of a downer mood. Also, my acne coincidently started blowing up like I just turned 15 again.
Walking into the office this morning I felt like I didn’t want to be there. I just wanted to go home again. To be left alone. I was afraid to interact because I felt I couldn’t do it. Insecure.
BUT I quickly realized this was emotions of fear that crippled me. After pinpointing this, I knew there was only one thing to do. Face those fears. Own it. Go be social. Prove yourself wrong. So I did., I sought out opportunities and I threw myself into them. And even though it was a bit of a rocky start, rather quickly I was back on track. And it totally changed my mood. Looking back at the day, I can now say It was a really good one. Both in terms of connecting with people, as well as improving my presentation and confidence to my presentation.
Routine #2 – New thing:
My daily new thing habit is to force myself to not get stuck in old habits and routines, stagnating my thought patterns. Look up joe Dispenza for more on this! Just like with the fear facing thing, it’s about keeping the habit going. Doesn’t always have to be big things!
– Tried a new tea flavour.
Yeah, that’s about what happened. Really nice one though;). chamomile honey and some more. Yoggi eco herbal tea.
Routine #3 – Daily Fail:
I had an uncomfortable email looking at me in my inbox today. I neglected to face my fears of dealing with it. Took me 3 hours until I finally did. But trying to put the lid on things like these only – subconsciously & consciously – drains us on energy. I should have faced that fear head on straight away. Wasted some energy, but learnt from the experience and hopefully next time I will deal with it sooner.
See you tomorrow, Fear Facer,
