It’s Your Move

Today I would like to share a fellow team members 30 Day Mental Cleanse lesson….this is why I am Proud and Honored to have been part of Mentoring For Free. These assignments that we do and our Masterminds, sharing our insights with each other, help people grow in ways that they never even knew existed. Thank you Russ Aker for such Words of Wisdom !

Chapter Fifteen

Indecision causes procrastination and doubt.  Doubt creates Fear.  Fear diverts attention and impedes action.  Do you know how many times you’ve said, “I’ll start tomorrow”?  Action Step four in the chapter on Desire Hill says, “create a definite plan for what it is you Desire and begin at once whether you are ready or not.”

What is that fear which stops us in our tracts?  Criticism.

I suggest a good escape route is a real honest evaluation of our Ego.  Our ego will deny the existence of fear, indecision, doubt and ego itself, using every excuse available not wanting to let go.  Ego allows us excuses to blame failure on something outside of us.  If we are allowed to see these enemies, our ego fears we will be discovered as less valuable and important… it FEARS Criticism (criticism being the second greatest fear).  Ego has a dictionary full of reasons and excuses.

Ego is first party to denial and wants us to keep thinking our lives are in the control of something outside of us.  Our ego knows if we come awake and start to see, then we’ll have to take action in an unknown environment outside the misery of our current comfort zone.  Why are we so miserable in what seems comfortable?  Because our comfort zone is only a looking glass for viewing our Desire.  We must step through the looking glass and experience the uncomfortable to attain what we seek…or quit looking through the glass and torturing ourselves.

If one has to Fear something Fear this…Hill – “Life is a checkerboard, and the player opposite us is TIME. If we hesitate before moving, or neglect to move promptly, we will be wiped off the board by time. We are playing against a partner who will not tolerate INDECISION!” …Your move!    Russ Aker, Portland, Oregon
