Monday Morning Motivation | Living In the Future
Posted by Bill Esteb on Jul 9th 2022
As part of an elimination diet consider your relationship with fear.
While psychologists disagree on the exact number of fears, there is agreement that it constrains our ability to live life to the full. It's an anxious feeling, caused by the anticipation of a future event.
The two most common among chiropractors is the fear of failure and the fear of success.
The fear of failure. Since fear occurs in the future, become present. What can you do right now? Focus on the next five minutes. What is the highest and best use of your time and talent right now? Stay present—where there is no fear.
The fear of success. Increased responsibilities and greater accountability that come with a larger practice keep many living small. Thankfully, most success is incremental—like the frog in the boiling water. (It's why winning the lottery is rarely a blessing.)
Be here. Now.
