Starve the Monster

We are all afraid.

Life is not about waiting to be unafraid. If that were the case we would all be sitting around doing nothing.

The trick with fear is to give it no authority in our lives whatsoever. Do not feed the monster and the monster shrivels up and dies.

Feed the monster of fear, give into its voice, go with what fear is saying, and your life will be consumed. No good end this.

Rather, push against fear, step through it, show fear who is boss – its You.

Take it on. Give it what for. Do not acquiesce.

And over time fear will morph into the size of an ant that is flicked off your shoulder.

And you, You can get on with living.
