PostSubject: Facing the giants in your life   12/4/2010, 2:33 pm

Stop for a moment and reflect through the years of all the challenges you have faced, overcome, achieved; or perhaps...got the best of you. Acknowledge just how different each circumstance could have been different just based on courage or lack of, and positive or negative actions you chose.
Our own self-esteem, fears, and even our ego is truly the largest giant we will ever face in life. Many times we beat ourselves by our own fears, etc. before any other giant ever have a chance. None of the giants we face can ever beat us, if we let them. We often times make situations harder for us to over come simply because of these things. Think of an extreme case where someone has commit suicide, and sadly, how truly it was the giants within them that beat them. No matter what giants come your way, life will go on. And no matter what, you can simply choose to beat any of those giants, including the ones within you. Yes, there is a lot of turmoil, misfortunes, sorrow, and hate in the world. But none of these will ever out weigh the goodness, joy, and love in our lives...
Self-esteem is your inner strength, and confidence in yourself. And lack of self-esteem is just the opposite and is the core of any inner giants you may have. Lack of self-esteem not always, but at times, can lead to many fears including fear of fear. And not always, but in some cases lack of self-esteem and fear can hurt you, hold you back; and even in some cases similar to the one I mentioned, it can destroy you.
When having a lack of self-esteem and fears, we reluctantly move forward because we are afraid of the outcome. Simply put, we are afraid of the unknown. And afraid of ourselves and what we can accomplish or be victorious of. And in this case if we needed to hire a body guard, we wouldn't choose ourselves because we have no confidence in ourselves. When in fact, it should be the opposite; if there was anyone to choose from, one should trust his own judgment, power, and strength more than anyone else.
So what is the outcome that you are afraid of? And do you really think that if you approach this fear head on that you will lose in the long run? Sure there may be bruising emotionally, or physically. But it is not emotional and physical victories that determine our true strength in life. Instead it is really the concept of approaching the fears that is what makes you strong and victorious.
Embrace those fears. What ever it is you fear, it is of great meaning and importance to you. Instead of allowing those fears to rule over you, choose to be courageous and take the actions necessary to move yourself past them. The more you practice fighting against the fears, the easier it gets each time.
Truly, fear can be a good thing depending on how you choose to use it. It is with fear that you acknowledge something important that you need to face in life in order to move yourself forward in a positive direction. Courage is driven by fear. Courage is the strength and will to move forward and past those fears, despite those fears. Without fear, you would have nothing to be courageous about.
