Faith and Fear

  In every decision we make, there are two powerful forces battling for influence. One tells you to be safe, to seek out comfort. It constantly reminds you of past mistakes and failures. Through the power of imagination, it often makes up things to get its way.   FEAR   wants to limit your goals, dreams and actions.    Fortunately, there is another equally powerful force that can override this lower self.   FAITH   means believing that when you do your best, magic can occur. It is a spiritual energy that generates optimism and when directed, fuels relentless actions. When we combine faith with hard work and optimal living, FEAR is suffocated and diminished.    This yin & yang like struggle happens in all of us. And we each must make a choice. To be paralyzed or limited by fear. Or to say, ‘fuck it’ and have faith that our best is good enough. On our deathbeds, we will look back and decide who won the war.
