"No one enters adulthood unscarred. We’ve all been burned, so we all live with fear. The difference between a fulfilled life and a stifled one is whether you are in control of your fear, or your fear is in control of you. If fear is responsible for your decisions, you’ve made your potential conditional on what fear will let you do. You’ve robbed yourself of all the possibilities that were intended for you.'

'Until you overcome your fear, whatever it is, you will be limited in your ability to share your gifts, to love, and to make the world a better place. So, don’t spend another day trapped in that prison, both jailer and jailed." (Read the entire article with one author's opinion of six suggestions to overcome fear in your decision making HERE.

Expressing the Inner Voice May Bring Benefits

Good morning all!!

We hope that you had a great weekend and are well-rested to start your week off! Today we want to share an article with you from Psychology Today about self talk and how it can actually be beneficial to some. "Many associate hearing voices or talking to oneself with mental illnesses like schizophrenia. And because these behaviors deviate from the norm, they make people uncomfortable. But might there be benefits to expressing inner thoughts out loud in this way?

James McConnell, an American biologist and animal psychologist, has said that talking to oneself is psychologically healthy. And neuroscientist Jill Bolte Taylor, in her book My Stroke of Insight, argues that speaking out loud makes the mind more focused, and even calls it “a powerful instrument.” To continue reading the rest of the article and learn more about positive self talk visit the link here.
