How Is Fear Impacting Our Wealth?

Fear is something every single one of us deals with. There are outstandingly few people that do not feel fear. Those people typically tend to have – what we would call in society – a disability. They are incapable of feeling fear.

A disability is something that dissolves the capabilities a human being should have. So we can only attribute a disability to something that we should be able to do. As a result, we can deduce that fear is something everyone should be able to experience. 

I have a strong belief that fear is one of the most potent blessings we have received from nature during our evolutionary course. That may sound a bit strange to some, but I can provide very clear arguments to this and allow you to think about it and analyze your own life. The reason why fear is so potent is because you can never fear reality.

Reality in this present moment is what it is. You cannot change it. You cannot change the present, you cannot change the past, you cannot change the future. It is what it is. Our entire life is lived in one second or one moment – increments of reality. If you think about it, you can never fear reality. You can only fear the future. You can only fear your imagination.

This is a very important aspect. Because you can only fear the future, or you can only fear imagination, it means that you have the capability of envisioning a future and that you have the capability to set in motion actions and events that will change that future you fear so much.

So, for example, if I am scared that I will lose my job in the next month, because the company is going bankrupt or because something else is going on, I can allow that fear to paralyze me, or I can use it to start applying for other jobs, or I can use it to have a conversation with my manager to ask what it is that we could do so we don’t lose our business. You can prevent something that you are scared of. 

Sometimes, I understand that we feel hopeless and we believe that we cannot prevent future pain or future suffering. However, if you have the internet bandwidth and technological ability to listen or read this message, then I can almost guarantee that you have enough power to make a change in your life or to avoid future outcomes that you did not desire.

I’m not saying that it’s going to be easy, or I’m not saying you will have all the answers. The only thing I am sharing with you today, and I warmly invite you to do, is to consider fear as one of your best friends. This ability to fear a future outcome can, if you use it properly, help you create the exact future that you desire for yourself, for your family, and for your community.

I can, as a world leader, fear a war and in order to avoid it I can invite embassies and other leaders, the ones I’m going to war with, to have a discussion and to agree on peaceful terms. Or, at a much smaller scale, I can fear not meeting a deadline on a project I’m working on, that is maybe three days away, so what I can do is I can talk to my manager and tell them ”Look, I’m scared that I won’t meet this deadline. What I think we can do is x, y and z.”

And you come up with solutions. If you don’t have answers and solutions, you can ask for help. You can ask your colleagues, you can ask your peers, you can ask your manager, and so on and so forth. But basically, instead of living with the fear, you can face it head-on, in advance of anything actually happening. 

Remember, we can never fear the present, we can only fear the future. We can only fear our imagination so that will always help us in preventing the negative outcomes. Does that mean we will prevent undesirable outcomes every single time? No, of course not. However, we as a species have the ability to prevent them. Again: the ability, the blessing.

A lion cannot think one month in advance. It does not have any plans, it cannot make any plans, it cannot envision anything. It cannot imagine anything. Just like a dog couldn’t, or a cat, and so on and so forth. They live in the moment. And by the way that’s why they’re most of the time so happy and calm.

We, on the other hand, have the ability to envision the future, which also gives us the responsibility to make it as best as possible – for ourselves and everyone around us.

Hopefully, this gives you something to think about and hopefully, moving onward, you will use fear for what it can become, and that is a tool to help you on your journey. Thank you so much. Bye.
