Eliminate Fear

Welcome and thanks for visiting.

I came across this quote today, by the famous Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh and feel inclined to share it with you;

"The key to success is for you to make a habit throughout your life of doing the things you fear."
Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890)Dutch painter and art salesman

How tempting it can be to run in the opposite direction of our fears, but there is truth and wisdom in turning and facing our fears instead, which allows us to release the energy out and ultimately conquer them instead. Most of us tend to allow our fears to become disproportionately larger than they warrant.

Like building a structure using Tinket Toy pieces, similar hurts, stories and fears glom on together over our lifetime, ultimately becoming like a "nucleus of limitation"... until it becomes so big it feels consuming and unmanagable. But with persistence, loving care and time, we can gradually whittle away at the Tinket Toy fear we've unconsciously built until it is nothing more than little pieces not amounting to much.

In the meantime, our persistence pays off at the other end, having now conquered our demons and accomplished something good for ourselves. Many years ago, I overcame a fear of deep water this way, slowly slowly placing myself deeper into a swimming pool, until I finally felt peaceful in deep water by the end of the summer.

Each conquer becomes an affirmation of our increased possibility, giving us drive to push on even further into our potentials! This conquer of mine was a huge and easy catalist to overcome other lesser fears I had.

Van Gogh must have fought and won his own Tinker Toy demons too... and won with this wisdom. Something worth experimenting with, hey!
