edvard-munch-screamYeah, yeah, yeah, I think as I type the title above, which is a quote by Fritz Perls. And I know that there is nothing to fear but fear itself, (Franklin D Roosevelt) at least in my mind. But when my demons are clattering at me, I forget that I have the option to invite them in, as the wise monk did in an old Tibetan Buddhist tale, to tea.

I guess it’s inevitable that as I prep my upcoming event to Turn your Ideas into Reality and New Year’s Resolutions into Results, that I need to face all the ways I get scared that I’m not up to the task of delivering these potent tools well, despite past successes and testimonials.

What helps me spiral out of those old tired doubts is the absolute commitment I have to passing forward this potent information to people who will use it well. Well — that and, of course, embodying it All with qigong.
