Day 10: Seeing The Fear

Practice, practice, practice.  That’s the way you get good at seeing all the fear that is stopping you from living your wild adventure.

Listen to the audio, then do the journaling activity below.

Practice, practice, practice.  That’s the way you get good at seeing all the fear that is stopping you from living your wild adventure.

One of the powerful disciplines you can develop in spotting fear is to…SLOW DOWN! 

Create some time and space around those moments when you find yourself derailed into procrastination, overwhelm, distraction etc.  

Treat those moments like they are a slow-motion film. Look at them frame by frame.  It will give you the best opportunity to spot the fears that hide deep within the scene. 

Now give your journal some love…

Go back to the derailed moments you listed on Day 4 (or use other ones if you like). Pick one to expand into greater detail.  Add as much fine detail as you can, like you’re describing the scene frame.  

  • What happened at the moment before you derailed?
  • How did you feel?
  • What were you doing or seeing?
  • Who was there?
  • What did you think?
  • What happened during the derailing moment?
  • What flowed from it?

Write it all down in your journal and then re-write a clearer, more precise description of the fear that was present.  

When you describe the fine detail, what do you notice happens to your feelings about that fear?

Repeat this activity as many times as you can. Practice, practice, practice.  Eventually, your mind will do this processing automatically.
