The hardest part about fear is that it completely depletes our reserves. It takes up so much room, that it does not allow us to resolve the main issue. There are always big things blocking us. It’s never just ONE thing. For me, its always come in the perfect storm. Sometimes the storms present itself by not having enough money to live on, by having conflict with personal relationships, by battling weight…but it really doesn’t matter how it manifests itself, the point is to look at the outcomes and fix the MAIN problem, not just the extraneous issues.
It’s like a good ole’ plumber who’s called upon to fix six pipes that have busted. He fixes all the pipes but can’t seem to fix the larger problem, because he has completely forgotten to focus on the main pipeline that feeds the smaller ones. We can’t just focus on fixing the small stuff while ignoring the BIG QUESADILLA. Fix the big thing first, then all the other smaller stuff will resolve itself.
The problem with that is we sometimes get so consumed with the smaller stuff, because it is easier to focus on the smaller annoying crap than on the big scary one.
Exercise for the day:
Focus on the BIG ONE- the MAIN ONE stop being a sissy. Then the little things will go away.
