Quote from Susan Jeffers:
When we are concerned with something bigger than ourselves, our fears are greatly diminished.
If you’ve truly committed yourself to something, given it all you’ve got, and then concluded that it is not for you—move on to something else.
No one is more unloving than a person who can’t own his or her own love.
I said to myself: “You mean all those people out there that I’ve been envying because they’re not afraid to move ahead with their lives have really been afraid? Why didn’t somebody tell me!?” I guess I never asked.
I’ve created the concept of a holi-hour, a shortened version of a holi-day. I allow myself at least an hour each day to relax totally.
By now you’ve gotten the picture. We can’t escape fear. We can only transform it into a companion that accompanies us in all our exciting adventures; it is not an anchor holding us transfixed to one spot.
The truth is:
If you knew you could handle anything that came your way, what would you have to fear?
The answer is: NOTHING!
In a sense, your need to please shows you what you have to work on—and that is: letting go emotionally of the role of child and stepping into the role of adult.
We can’t control the world, but we can control our reactions to it.
When you see yourself connected to something bigger than yourself, you no longer feel you must do it all alone. Your sense of power becomes highly magnified, and your fears are greatly diminished.
The less you need someone’s approval, the more you are able to love them.
I know it is hard to accept, but an upset in your life is beneficial, in that it tells you that you are off course in some way and you need to find your way back to your particular path of clarity once again.
