“Courage is not the absence of Fear, but the ability to Act in spite of it.” - Franklin Roosevelt.
You are standing in a circle.
The spotlight shines right on you.
There is light now.
But outside the circle you notice the shadows come creeping closer.
They are drawn to the Light.. the Light that is in you.
You hear it whisper your name, beckoning you to listen to it!
You stand poised, ready..
The Shadows envelope itself around your circle only for it to be pushed back!
But by who?
Now you whisper..

An interesting way to look at our fears. Do you agree?
I particularly like the end, how realising our potential automatically liberates others. We are drawn to inspiring figures and they encourage us to achieve greater things. In turn, we inspire others. It’s a virtuous cycle!
To believe-IN someone’s abilities is to provide a source of strength and positivity to people!
Few things are so unhelpful and useless as feeling sorry for someone. Will repeat USELESS! I've seen it happening while going throughout my life-events as I see it about other people going through life-Events, I promise you even though I was caught in surprise yet almost certain that considering the circumstances "I was the smartest person in the room, though". Fill people's heart with HOPE!
Love and Care,
As human beings, we often feel uncomfortable with not knowing what is coming next. It reminds us of our vulnerability.
The truth is that we never really know what is coming next. We like to make stories and make plans to give us a sense of knowing.
When the unknown becomes a national event, such as Brexit, an entire population can then become unsettled. What do we do to relieve such emotional discomfort? We fight, we argue, we complain, and so on and so forth. But underneath it all, we are afraid. We are afraid of change. We are afraid of our rights being taken away. We are afraid of vulnerability.
In times of crisis, it’s important to remind ourselves of what grounds us: our home, our family, our friends, our loved ones. Shelter yourself close to the ones you love, pay attention to what is important: connection.
Let go of the angst towards the things you can’t change, but do focus on what you have control over: opening your arms and embracing your vulnerability as it may be an opportunity for growth.
Way too many entrepreneurs give up before they should. You are NOT going to be one of them. Today I am going to give you the reasons why people give up so you can make sure that you don't follow them. Whatever you do DO NOT do the following:
Don't expect fast results. Everything worth doing is worth doing precisely because not too many other people are doing it. If you started out as an entrepreneur expecting it to be quick, the only thing you need to give up is that expectation itself. Stick around and play the game.
Don't stop believing in yourself. When you start out as an entrepreneur, you don’t have a product/service or a company to believe in. That only leaves you. That’s why it’s a tragedy when people quit because they don’t think they have what it takes. If you believe in yourself people will also believe in you and your product/service.
Don't dwell on mistakes. Got burnt by a partnership gone sour? A client has unexpectedly left? Get over it. If you don’t, your baggage will prevent you from succeeding in the future.
It’s been proven that everyone will work 10x harder to get back $1000 that was stolen from them, versus working to earn a fresh $1000 from scratch. Fear of failure paralyses entrepreneurs.
It makes giving up feel like a relief. Business is significantly risky and no entrepreneur succeeds by avoiding all the risks. Rather, they succeed because their increase their resilience – their capacity for risk tolerance.
The one thing entrepreneurs SHOULD give up on… is a bad idea. The one thing you should never give up on is the game of entrepreneurship itself. It's totally fine to re-brand, to change your niche. But the one thing you should NEVER do is give up.
Have you ever gotten to the point where you wanted to give up but you didn't? If so, share with us what that reason was. You never know, you may just prevent someone else from giving up today.
A chance to come to a safe space, gain clarity & purpose in your role as a man & in life.

Wir starten in eine neue Serie mit dem kraftvollen Titel „Sieg über Sorgen“ und die erste Botschaft nennen wir „Es reicht!“. Genau, es reicht! In dieser Botschaft sprechen wir darüber, wie unnötig und unvernünftig es ist, sich immer und zu viel zu sorgen & was wir stattdessen tun können. Anhand der Geschichte des Propheten Elija (Vgl. 1. Könige 17-19) zeigen wir 4 Fehler auf, die uns von der Nachfolge Jesu abbringen & uns verlieren lassen im Kampf gegen weltliche Sorgen und Probleme.
Sei Teil der Botschaft und unternimm mit uns die ersten Schritte gegen Sorgen und Herausforderungen! Im Glauben standhaft & im Gebet demütig, ausdauernd und hingebungsvoll wollen wir lernen, uns weniger zu Sorgen und unseren Blick auf IHN zu richten!
„Deshalb beugt euch unter Gottes mächtige Hand. Dann wird Gott euch aufrichten, wenn seine Zeit da ist. Ladet alle eure Sorgen bei Gott ab, denn er sorgt für euch.“ (1.Petrus 5,6-7 HfA)
➡ Die neue Botschaft kannst du dir JETZT auf YouTube in HD anschauen! Link auf unserem Profil!

Good morning you beautiful lot!
Crystal of the week: Malacholla
Card of the day: Relinquishing Fear
Fear is a hard one to break but it can be done. On one level, a little fear helps, it’s a way of protecting us from danger but on the other hand, it can become so big it becomes debilitating. When this happens, it allows us to overthink, to isolate ourselves and become stuck. It’s time you faced the big fears and start questioning them.
Are they healthy fears?
Are they rational?
Are they preventing you from things?
Slowly allow yourself to face these fears in order to remove the blocks that keep you tied down.
Ps lot of parcels will be sent out today💞
Somente quando o medo não está presente é possível decidir ou agir sob a lucidez da Verdade. 🙏 Portanto, até o medo não dar espaço para a Fé se estabelecer ficaremos repetindo situações e gerando posicionamentos equivocados, enrolados em contratempos e reverberando sofrimento no mundo. 💗 'Eu Sou o Caminho, a Verdade e a Vida' 👣💗 #psicomatriz

I am transitioning. Not just with the seasons but also with my entire life. I am moving through the process of packing up my life and moving to the other side of the world.
The seasons around me have been changing over the last few weeks and there is this natural inward motion we begin to make, more staying in, more internal reflection which I have been doing nothing but resisting. Is this a reflection of my outer world? Of me resisting wanting to face the emotions that come with big life changing decisions?
I feel like I’ve been saying goodbye to some very important people in my life for a month now, it’s been painful but also unbelievably beautiful. Not only do I love laughing with my favourite humans, but I love crying with them too, sharing pain, connecting over tough and very real emotions. With goodbyes come hellos, as doors close, others open. But as I begin to enter my last week in London (for now) I feel a lot of confusion. This mix of unreal excitement of opportunity and new beginnings, new surroundings, starting with an undoubtably deep journey on the @thewildgracemovement teacher training. But also a serious amount of fear, not fear of failing and to needing to come home to security, no, failing doesn’t scare because I know I’ve tried. But I fear to actually love somewhere else more which is so far away from the people that I love so so deeply.
Fear. Fear is what I feel.
I choose now to surrender and trust completely in the universe and my journey. That as I move from my heart I will be guided to exactly and only where I need to be ✨
Какие предположения? Мы долго думали, чей это череп? Так и не поняли.
Вообще это давняя мода хранить и коллекционировать части мертвого. На память? Для ритуалов. Чтоб глаз радовать, других пугать. Да и просто для себя. В моем доме такого инвентаря нет... по мне так карты, свечи, перья - мертвая романтика, а черепа да кости - что с них взять? Но мне нравится подмечать их в гостях. Но не за обеденным столом:) #gothic#candy#collection#goth#death#череп#мертвое#настольгия#коллекция#загадка#blackmagic#fear 🦇

I used to feel so much resistance around burning bridges.
Partly because of my deep rooted people pleasing + fear of being excluded.
Partly because I believed it gave me some sense of superiority + a spiritual upper hand (lol not exactly spiritual I have now come to realize 😆). Sometimes it’s COMPLETELY valid + NECESSARY to burn bridges. Sometimes it’s not.
I used to think it made me more loving to accept everyone in + keep them in my circle.
Now I know doing this can sometimes be a huge act of self-betrayal.
If keeping someone in my life requires me to abandon myself (aka repress my truth, stuff my emotions, or reject my story), that shit has GOT 👏🏻 TO 👏🏻 GO 👋
It’s abusive to my soul to keep people around who continually show they have ZERO regard for my emotional safety, security + baseline respect, decency + consideration.
Those are the bridges getting set ablaze.
When I talk about burning these bridges, I’m also not saying be an asshole + hurt others the way they’ve hurt you.
Not about retaliation or revenge + passing the abuse or aggression forward.
I’m talking about advocating for my truth with respect + loving firmness.
One of my fav mentors Terry Real likes to say: “there’s no redeeming factor to harshness. There’s nothing harshness can do that loving firmness can’t do better.” I am all for this.
To me burning bridges is the ultimate act of self-autonomy and sovereignty, when loving firmness, the CLEAR + RESPECTFUL communication of boundaries + needs are continually steamrolled + dishonoured.
This act isn’t dramatic.
It’s a simple, unassuming closing of a door that was once open.
We sometimes have to close the door to others to remain open to ourselves.
Don’t let this industry shame you into keeping people close who are committed to dishonouring or hurting you.
You can love and accept people at a distance (or across the planet) as @daniellelaporte has so wisely shared before.
Self-sacrificing isn’t cute, it’s not noble and it’s sure as fuck not loving.
Here’s your permission slip to close the doors where it’s necessary.
We’re in this together fam ❤️ 📸: @leorisingyoga
Fear. We’re terrified. Afraid of being judged for our weird, goofball, bizarre, quirky selves. Sadly, it often takes being stripped bare before we’re willing to step into that place where we just don’t care what others think or say. Many of the people I’ve known in life who’ve found that place of full expression and unapologetic joy have also been through substantial trials. They’ve hit the proverbial, and sometimes literal, rock bottom. When you land in that place and are forced to examine who and what truly matter, you realize life is short. There is a cost to living in the shadows. You’ve been judged as fiercely as you could be judged; you have nothing left to lose by just being you. That’s when the renewal begins. That’s when the light shines through.⠀
Does that mean you need to manufacture or invite into your existence a full-life face-plant before you can step into the essence of who you are? Of course not. It just means you have to begin to choose you. Take baby steps. First in private. Then, if you feel emboldened, bring that gorgeous self, the one that’s been yearning to get out, to a friend. Then a few more, and a few more. Then, who knows, maybe to the world.⠀
