What are you afraid of?
That’s a question we ask our friends, spouse, or children.
You see, fear, in and of itself is nothing.
There has to be something that cause us to be afraid of.
That something can be both internal as well as external.
External factors are nothing to be afraid of.
That’s if we don’t allow them.
If that thing you’re afraid of is external, then there’s two things you can do about it.
- You can ignore it.
- You can walk away from it.
What’s probably scarier are internal factors.
I’d argue that more often than not, what causes us to be afraid are internal factors.
In other words, these are factors that are within us.
However, factors within us are within our control.
And so if we don’t let them, they cannot scare us.
Learning in the new normal
We are all struggling to figure out what the new normal looks like.
With uncertainties, it is natural that some of us would be fearful.
Truth is, there is a way to deal with it.
My thesis is this: you need to learn and learn fast.
You do want to thrive in the new normal, don’t you?
