“Let fear be a counselor and not a jailer.” Anthony Robbins
What Anthony Robbins is suggesting, is that we learn to transform our relationship with fear. What we fear does not really matter – how we meet and greet what we fear does.
Imagine that the next time fear arrived, instead of recoiling and stepping back, you stepped forward confidently shook its hand and said, ‘So what brings you here today?’ …And then listened to what it had to say?
Fear is not always a bad thing; sometimes it is a messenger, sometimes it is a motivator, and sometimes it is the voice of reason telling you that danger lay ahead.
The trick is to step forward and inquire when fear arrives, instead of stepping backward and letting the jail door close.
