Breaking the Fear Cycle

Breaking the Fear Cycle

I believe that in every challenge, we grow stronger because of it. When we push through the challenge, either the challenge is in the form of doing something we have not done before, or meeting someone unfamiliar, when we go through it, we become stronger. I look back at the past decade and realise that I have done things that most of my peers have not done before, taken risk and made decisions that my peers do not know of….

Faced my PT fear challenge today

Faced my PT fear challenge today

I think I slept pretty well last night, probably my mind turned off thinking about the inevitable event today. Or maybe the Fear Less techniques were starting to kick in and I learnt to control the creativity part to steer the brain to imagining positive outcomes rather then negative ones. Woke up today, trying to fight the negative feelings. Kept thinking what was going to happen, and what if the PT wanted to ask more information, where could I provide…

Parts of your Brain on your Journey to Fear Less

Parts of your Brain on your Journey to Fear Less

To understand how we can train ourselves to Fear Less and for understanding our journey to be fearing less, we have to understand a little about our brain. Our brain is made up of 3 different parts; The Reptilian Brain, The Limbic system and the Neocortex system. The Reptilian Brain, which is also the oldest part of our brain, that is inherited from our prehistoric ancestors, deal with the most primary and basic functions that our body requires to function…

The plot reads more like a deep literature piece that examines human behaviour, human motivations and poses questions to the viewer for a more indepth reflection. There are no right or wrong answers. The answer depends on the individual that is faced with the question. The main plot…

The dark side of is that, with its mass amount of creativity and problem solving…

Feeling a lack of control

Feeling a lack of control

The feeling of having a lack of control usually makes people anxious and panicky. Its the feeling of not knowing what will happen, or if something negative will happen to them today, or now or in the near future. It’s the feeling of dread and anxiety mixed together. This feeling stems from feeling that you do not have control. Its true that you may not have control over external events, a call from someone you dread, a letter which you…

A new beginning

A new beginning

Had a sudden inclination to put up this blog again to record and document some ideas and reflections which I have discovered over these past few years. Life is like a journey, sometimes difficult, sometimes treacherous, sometimes easy and maybe if you are lucky, you even get to smell the roses along the way. Most of the time, the road is bumpy with potholes. I guess you just have to smile when that happens. This blog was setup and re-setup…
