Free yourself not fear yourself (or anyone else.) Fear may be holding you hostage. Here’s how to know for sure.

Today I’ll ask you 7 questions that’ll help you uncover fear in your life, and discover freedom.

Do you remember being afraid of the dark as a child? Perhaps even as an adult you feel the fear that darkness can bring.

Darkness symbolizes the unknown or the unexposed.

These 7 questions, and your answers, can help you KNOW and EXPOSE some things that’ll shed light on your life.

Are you ready?

Grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself) if you’re able to do so right now. If not, take time to journal later.

1. Do you find yourself worrying versus wondering?

2. Do you put the opinions that others have about YOU, above the opinion you have of yourself?

3. Do you use the words: Should, but…, Would, but…, Could, but… often?

4. When you think about the future, do you feel delight or dread?

5. Do you find yourself “waiting for the shoe to drop?” (Especially when things are going well.)

6. Do you play “not to lose” versus playing to win?

7. Do you love yourself?

If the answer isn’t a certain, resounding YES, then chances are there’s FEAR somewhere in your life.

Remember that the opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s fear.

Are you willing to address FEAR today and call it out?

If so, be courageous…honest…and grateful…because on each side FEAR there are incredible, invaluable lessons for you…and me.

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) 


Are you afraid? Write down what you’re afraid of…

Write out the answer to each of the questions above in your journal.

Discover this for yourself (about yourself:)

A) Are you afraid?

B) What are you afraid of?

C) Are you willing to free yourself today…not fear yourself?

Sometimes all that’s needed is to turn the lights on.
