We can walk confidently through a world of danger, but when it comes to our personal fear we will allow our thoughts and energy to be focused on one thing that consumes us.
Month: February 2018
Fear can often cause more harm than good. It makes us do weird things. We don’t always think straight.
Don’t judge a book by its cover. A tattered and worn book may contain the world’s greatest mystery. Likewise, not every book with a shiny flyleaf and pretty picture on the front has value. Be wise.
We all have decisions to make in life. We have to weigh up the value and purpose of one decision or direction over another. We have to determine whether we want quick results, or whether to take a risk for bigger rewards down the road. This can be scary.
we all have different goals and ambitions. We all have a part to play, and therefore we should not over-estimate or under-estimate our own value in comparison to others.
We can’t sit by and allow people to be isolated and then be surprised when they find a place in an extremist group, turning their back on society, or worse, supporting Woking FC.
Like it or not, you are in a group. Many groups. Parent, spouse, sport fan, vegan, hunter, political party affiliate. You, me, everyone – we’re in groups and we like it. It is so easy to see differences between us, but we become healthier, stronger, and have stronger mental health if we focus on the areas we have commonality.
We apply labels to ourselves, and depending on who is reading the label the meaning may change. Describing someone as an immigrant, conservative, liberal, *insert religion*, *insert nationality*, or Woking FC supporter means different things to different people. We love labels. The problem isn’t that we use labels, the problem is that we allow them to become a definition of the whole person.
Hope is not something we can create on our own. We rely on people all the time to help us, guide us, support and encourage us to be more than we can be. We need coaches and supporters. Willpower alone will only go so far.
