It’s about so much more than Fear

I’ve learned every bit as much about myself and my journey as my students have in Break Free. The Universe appears to have a crazy-ass wicked sense of humour because somehow or other it came about that I had to create a course about Fear in order to break free from my own Fear. But it is working. PIN to save or read later...

The doors to Break Free open on April 23rd and I am far, far, behind. I am trusting that it will all get done and it will be just as it’s meant to be.

Meet the new zen kathy. While that remains to be seen, for some reason, despite the fact that I am writing my first post of the series the night before it’s to be sent out, I have six more to write, and a webinar to plan, and a multitude of marketing materials to create, I feel very calm and unflustered.

In the past, I would have been stressing and complaining about how hard this is days ago (it would be weeks ago, but I only started working on the launch on Monday).  I’m actually enjoying the process far more this time than my first time. It’s partly because I know what I have to do. I have a plan. A step-by-step guide and if I follow it, I'll get there.

Could it be that I am taking my own advice? I think maybe I am… Perhaps I’m building resilience as I’ve been knocked many times and I’m up again for another try. Yep, that too.

I’ve learned every bit as much about myself and my journey as my students have in Break Free. The Universe appears to have a crazy-ass wicked sense of humour because somehow or other it came about that I had to create a course about Fear in order to break free from my own Fear.

But it's working.

When we’re identifying and examining our fears, they can’t just be
plucked off our sleeves like lint and *poof* they’re gone. 
It doesn’t work like that.

Fear is multi-layered and so hard to pin down. It involves going back into memory and things that happened when we were very young and had no say or control over the what happened to us. We keep believing we have no control until we realize that we are adults and must take total responsibility for our lives. There is no prince on a white stallion coming to rescue us. We need to rescue ourselves. 

That's when we connect the dots, see the patterns,
recognize it's not true, and begin to let the fear go. 

We spend most of our time in the seven modules of Break Free looking at fear, facing our fear, working on our limiting beliefs about ourselves, and turning around our fears into examples of courage and bravery. The opposite of fear is not fearless — it’s courage. Feeling the fear and just doing it — because we must. When we do, we can finally let go of the stories about ourselves that we’ve discovered have no basis in truth, only limiting belief after limiting belief. By doing this, we create room for new stories that are yet to be written.
