Today’s Writing Prompt:
Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Write down a major life goal you have yet to achieve or even begin to take action on. For each goal, write down three uncertainties (read: fears) you have relating to each goal. Break it down further, and write down three reasons for each uncertainty. When you have three reasons for your fear, you’ll be able to start processing the change because you know where the fear stems from. Now you’ll be able to make a smaller changes that push you towards your larger goal. So begins the process of “trusting yourself.”
I hate to say this and spoil this prompt, but I never set one of those goals. I can’t say I ever was one to want to set a goal. I guess you can say it’s because I wanted to do EVERYTHING!
I was fired once, and I was faced with something new. Was I fearful of it? No. However, I didn’t know how to handle myself.
The Boss can attest to the fact that I seem to face practically everything with an attitude of “ok, what happened happened…what’s next?”
