EP154 - Fear is Just a Story

EP154 - Fear is Just a Story

Good day, my friend. Welcome to A Moment with Moj. Thank you so much for downloading the show. You are the Mac to my cheese, I am so happy that we get to be together today. I hope everything is well with you and yours. Another little tweak to part two season two, Thursday's; Of course, it's always Thankful Thursday and let me take a moment to throw a little gratitude to Shari, who bought me some coffees at buymeacoffee.com. I have to confess, Shari is my sister and I believe that she is the first and only family member that has ever listened to any of my podcasts. So thank you so much Baby Sis! It's been great. I have a baby sister that has always supported her big brother in every endeavor that he's done. 

The tweak that I want to make on Thursday is, as you guys know, I love my ancient Stoics, I love my ancient quotes. Ancient sources tend to be mostly men and I want to make sure that the ladies have a voice here on A Moment with Moj. So, Thursday's are now ladies day! 

Lisa Nichols joins the show today and Lisa tells us, "Fear is just a story that you've told yourself about something that might happen in the future that you have zero evidence of it happening."

A copy com I have to confess Sherry, 8 00:00:51.460 --> 00:00:57.900 is my sister and I believe that she is the first and only family member that 9 00:00:57.940 --> 00:01:04.519 has ever listened to any of my podcast. So thank you so much baby sis, it's 10 00:01:04.580 --> 00:01:09.900 been great. I have a baby sister that has always supported her big brother in 11 00:01:10.040 --> 00:01:15.240 every endeavour that he's done. The tweak that I want to make on Thursday 12 00:01:15.760 --> 00:01:16.060 is, 13 00:01:17.180 --> 00:01:22.740 as you guys know, I love my ancient stoics. I love my ancient quotes. 14 00:01:22.960 --> 00:01:29.680 Ancient sources tend to be mostly men, and I want to make sure that the ladies 15 00:01:29.840 --> 00:01:36.760 have a voice here on a moment with mode, so Thursdays are now. Ladies Day 16 00:01:37.900 --> 00:01:40.980 Lisa Nichols joins the show today 17 00:01:42.200 --> 00:01:43.340 and Lisa tells us 18 00:01:44.340 --> 00:01:48.920 fear is just a story that you told yourself about something that might 19 00:01:49.040 --> 00:01:53.820 happen in the future that you have zero evidence of it happening. 20 00:01:54.960 --> 00:01:59.240 It was watching one of Lisa's talks. I think it was a mind valley. Talk that I 21 00:01:59.300 --> 00:02:05.180 was watching a youtube when I first heard that fear is 22 00:02:06.180 --> 00:02:08.960 false. Evidence appearing real 23 00:02:10.380 --> 00:02:18.140 life deals US enough challenges without us, adding to the pile and remember my 24 00:02:18.220 --> 00:02:26.120 friends. This isn't real fear. This isn't fear that keeps US safe, like the 25 00:02:26.240 --> 00:02:30.780 fear of crossing a busy street without looking for cars first, 26 00:02:31.800 --> 00:02:37.980 but these are fears that we've made up the fears that we are convinced will 27 00:02:38.020 --> 00:02:43.560 happen and my friend it can start out small. It can be something like how 28 00:02:43.620 --> 00:02:50.120 many people want to have a party. Of course you know not in pandemic times, 29 00:02:50.140 --> 00:02:53.760 but let's pretend we're not in a pandemic probabit. I don't think it's 30 00:02:53.800 --> 00:02:59.060 going to love God. I can't last much longer anyway, how many people want to 31 00:02:59.160 --> 00:03:04.020 have a party but they're afraid that no one will come 32 00:03:05.100 --> 00:03:10.760 so they never plan their party or their event. Or you know, 33 00:03:11.780 --> 00:03:18.320 a person won't bring their good tar to open micena because they're afraid that 34 00:03:18.380 --> 00:03:25.180 no one will listen or worse that they will listen and not like what they're 35 00:03:25.220 --> 00:03:25.720 hearing 36 00:03:26.740 --> 00:03:35.700 and once we came into those spheres, it becomes easier and easier and easier to 37 00:03:35.840 --> 00:03:42.620 give in to them again and again and again, many people are letting their 38 00:03:42.700 --> 00:03:50.160 dreams die because they're afraid afraid of the rejection that hasn't 39 00:03:50.280 --> 00:03:55.920 happened yet afraid of the defeat that hasn't happened yet afraid of the 40 00:03:56.000 --> 00:04:03.400 disappointment. That has a happen, tect afraid of losing a great of failure, a 41 00:04:03.880 --> 00:04:10.520 rate of being criticized afraid of being wrong, none of which has even 42 00:04:10.960 --> 00:04:17.700 happened. Yet, I'm not naive an not to know and you're, not either that we 43 00:04:17.740 --> 00:04:23.600 know that these things do happen, and I know that they hurt when they happen. 44 00:04:24.500 --> 00:04:30.940 But my friend we can't live our lives, avoiding pain, 45 00:04:32.100 --> 00:04:33.500 no matter what we do 46 00:04:34.520 --> 00:04:39.040 like Victor Frankel calls it unavoidable suffering, no matter what 47 00:04:39.140 --> 00:04:39.520 we do, 48 00:04:40.660 --> 00:04:47.800 pain is going to come at some point. It's gonna come so we deal with it when 49 00:04:47.820 --> 00:04:54.420 it arrives. We don't need to give it any more power by allowing our fears to 50 00:04:54.780 --> 00:04:55.620 call out to it. 51 00:04:56.640 --> 00:05:03.420 You deserve the very best from life and to getthat. You must demand the best 52 00:05:04.120 --> 00:05:11.060 from yourself. You know how I feel that I believe that you have greatness 53 00:05:11.160 --> 00:05:18.300 within you and that your genius has all the answers that you need. If we learn 54 00:05:18.340 --> 00:05:24.800 to ask the right questions and if we learn to listen for the answer, it's 55 00:05:24.860 --> 00:05:28.020 going to take courage, my bread to conquer these spears, 56 00:05:29.020 --> 00:05:37.400 but I know that together we can do it veris temporary, but regret regret of 57 00:05:37.740 --> 00:05:39.380 not going for it. 58 00:05:40.380 --> 00:05:41.420 That's forever, 59 00:05:42.920 --> 00:05:50.620 as our friends zigzig says, fear can be face everything and run or face 60 00:05:50.660 --> 00:05:52.700 everything and rise 61 00:05:53.800 --> 00:05:55.700 MIMICO. The choice 62 00:05:56.880 --> 00:05:57.260 is yours, 63 00:05:58.720 --> 00:05:59.600 carpe momentum, 64 00:06:00.640 --> 00:06:01.800 I'll talk to you to morrow. 65 00:06:09.040 --> 00:06:09.160 I
