  • Conquer Doubt and Fear. Conquer Failure.

    Posted on August 19th, 2010 Nelson Bodnarchuk No comments

    My Grandfather once said the longer we live the more we realize that the greatest diseases of mankind are doubt and fear.  He wasn’t trying to take away from the seriousness of some of our other afflictions, however doubt and fear rob more people of more life than all the other diseases of the world according to him.  He said that they’re diseases because they’re acquired,  we aren’t born with fear and doubt we learn fear and doubt.  They’re communicable and most of the time they’re passed from one person to the next like a virus or bad cold.

    But the dictionary definition states a disease as: “a condition of the living animal that impairs normal functioning.”

    Doubt keeps us from making positive and long lasting changes in our lives because they’ll “rock the boat” of the status quo. Fear causes us to make weak and often irrational decisions that can hinder our future potential for the sake of today’s comfort. It takes away our happiness, our sleep, and our very lives.

    However, for the person who identifies the symptoms of these diseases, there are cures available. There are five techniques that Grandpa passed on that you can use to beat these diseases:

    1. Fear is an opportunity that has been given to you as a way to bring you closer to your full potential.
    2. When you run from your fear you miss the opportunity to grow.
    3. Your beliefs are the basis behind your behaviors dictating your results.
    4. Your everyday habits reflect your beliefs and fears.
    5. Change your beliefs to change your behaviors. Change your behaviors to change your results. Change your results to change your life.

    Use these five techniques to help change the way you think and feel to fully enjoy your life.
