How To Stop Stagnating In Fear. A Poem With A Quirky Twist.
Many people allow fear to take over their soul. Instead of focusing on the fear right now, move the fear forward, to another time and place and enjoy being in the now, realising that there is no major catastrophe right now. Shut the fear and worry out of the door and learn to develop a positive frame of mind and better habits.

It can be really hard to stay strong in life. Especially when other people try to persuade you that their way, is the right way. That what they are asking you to do, is what you should be doing. That if you don’t do what they ask, you have failed in life or let them down. This is bad thinking.
It is made increasingly harder when you are more vulnerable. Such as when you are made redundant, you split up from a long term relationship or you have a low self esteem and feel depressed.
What you have to do, is to stay strong, and ask yourself some important questions:
●Is it the right way for me?
●Is what they are asking me to do, going to make me feel good?
●Am I going to benefit as a result?
●What are the consequences going to be for me?
● Am I happy or comfortable with what is being asked?
If you answered no to any of these questions and the consequences won’t be good, don’t do it, and certainly not their way. It’s your life and you have ultimate control over what you do or don’t do, regardless of what anyone else thinks. Stay strong and tell them it’s not the right thing for you to do, and it’s not your way. We are blessed with individuality, and that’s why you must choose what is right for you.
I have recently worked very hard to complete 10 modules of a Level 4 IAG Diploma. (Information, Advice and Guidance.)
I got given my modules on the 4th of May and had a tight deadline of the 25th of June, that was extended to the 27th of June. This Diploma is often done over a year and so I had my work cut out. With a lot of self-discipline, a lack of sleep and a huge amount of motivation, I succeeded in getting my coursework in by the 27th of June.
In order to motivate myself, I created a rewards list. That got larger and larger as time went on and I put more hours in to working. The list did work and now I am rewarding myself and it feels great. Here is my list:
- Meet my friends
- See my Grandma
- Visit my parents
- Eat sugar free, gluten free, chocolate ice-cream
- Go to the cinema
- Rent movies out
This list is not exhaustive, but captures all of the main points. Your list will be about what’s important to you.
In order to motivate yourself, it is essential to reward yourself once the work is done. It is important to give yourself little rewards as you go along, for the work you have done so far but if you tell yourself, you are not allowed to do some of the things until you have completed the work and it’s things you really want and need to do, then it will incentivise you to get the work done.
What is on your rewards list?
