As human beings, I do not believe that the primary purpose of being here on the planet is to watch mindless television, play violent videos games or follow the trainwreck lives of certain celebrities on social media.
5 devils of fear and how to dissolve them:
I strongly believe that we’re on this earthwalk to maximize our slumbering potential. And to realize our smoldering luminosity.
I deeply think that we’re most alive in the amount that we capitalize on all that we truly are [that’s been lost to a cold world that has shuttered our minds to wonder and shackled our hearts to love].
I viscerally sense that few outer things matter as much as exploiting the remainder of our lives in devoted pursuit of authentic personal mastery. [Outer things never fulfill inner longings].
And to then radiate that magic that we discovered was within us all along for the benefit of all those who our lives intersect with. [To lead is to serve, yes?].
So that our modelling of possibility gives others the hard tactical evidence that helps them make their ascent as well.
Humans generally only try to achieve what leaders of the herd have shown them is possible; and via the power of mirror neurons—which are the brain cells that formed in our primitive anscestors so that they could automatically copy the survival innovations of the chief, such as a new tool or a better way to hunt—we mimic the behavior of those we admire. So your stepping up to your mastery matters for the rest of us].
We are not born into limitation. We are taught to doubt, educated to make excuses and trained to fear.
Through the messages of our earliest teachers we are schooled strictly on how the world works, the ways we must operate to fit in with the group and the manner in which we must think in order to stay safe.
Devil #1: Excuses
Your excuses are liars, your doubts are thieves. The more times in a day that you rationalize why you can’t become all that you wish to be or handcraft the life that your best self wants, the more you’ll hardwire the neural circuit of that belief into your brain.
And that which you keep practicing is that which you’ll become a pro at. We become amazing at the things we repeat.
Devil #2: Blame
Blaming others is giving your primal power to the people and conditions that you blame.
You begin to take back your power to be the creator of your bravest life and the generator of your wildest dreams once you stop blaming that which is outside of you for the things you are currently experiencing.
Devil #3: Gossip
Speaking about people who are not present amplifies what you speak of within your own thinking. Talk of someone else’s misdeeds, weaknesses or blindspots and you’ll be cementing these within your own mentality.
Devil #4: Complaint
Complaining is a meek form of anger.
The more you grumble about what’s not working for you, the more you’ll be training your brain to look for those things in your environment.
Human cognition is built in such a way—through a system called The Reticular Activating System—that we actually only see the things outside of us that fit with the story we’ve sold ourselves.
Complain about how little money you have and all you’ll see is more scarcity of prosperity. Complain of how mean people are and you’ll notice more mean people.
Devil #5: Apathy
Your brain requires novelty to become fully engaged. Without a mighty mission to give your days over to, high value targets that electrify your enthusiasm and meaningful pursuits that fuel your joy, you’ll grow bored. And apathetic.
Scared people generally complain about how bored they are, by the way.
They are so terrified of living their genius and honoring their original gifts that they’ve suppressed their ambitions. And have no energetically imagined future that gets them out of bed before the sun comes up and inspires them to present their finest creativity to a most welcoming society.
Please consider these 5 devils that sabotage a pristine mindset—especially in challenging times. And then stay committed to doing the morning mastery work to ensure that they never affect the heavens of potential that your life is meant to materialize.
I hope you did enjoy 5 devils of fear and how to dissolve them.
