Shift from Fear to Love

Always searchin' for the real thing
Livin' like it's far away
Just leave all the madness in yesterday
You're holdin' the key
When you believe it Michael McDonald

Searching and needing. Looking and pleading. Hoping and Running. Controlling and Doubting

All signs of fear and lack

Seek not outside of yourself or it will fail. 

Every thing I have learnt is mindset and today I declare a mindset shift from fear and lack to

love and belief

Watch how this shift manifests itself into something magical

How many times have you started something, you name it- a diet, a relationship, a project, a job all "hot and sweaty" and with the first obstacle or maybe temptation you find an excuse, a justification, a rationale, a reason for why it cannot be done, will not be done, ought not be done, shall not be done

All the "nots"

Deep down you know, it is fear in the form of lack of discipline or some other manifestation of it.

So my challenge for you today is - shift the mindset, change the self talk, probably the company you keep, whatever it takes to shift from fear to love

Self belief decides everything
