The Key To Make This Trick Work

Make this trick a habit.

When you use this trick over and over to perform annoying tasks, it leads to the ability to build positive habits.

The key is: The 3...2...1 has to be engrained in your brain enough, that whenever you start the countdown, no matter what the task, you will do it.

All of us have great ideas, things we want to do today, or in the near future. However, we have trouble to find motivation and inspiration to go get it done.

Next time a task crosses your mind twice, that you don't want to do, use the 3...2...1 trick. Start counting down from 3 to 1, and when you hit 1, stop everything that you're doing. Go finish that task.

It's the person that feels that most of the time there is no other option but to adjust to the expectations of others, and yet harbors a lot of hidden resentment.

This is a dangerous path: they end up confusing everyone around them by failing to express their true needs and feelings and they also build up a lot of frustration.

What Is Fear?

Fear only exists to you in your mind and it is protecting you from the unknown. 

As human being, it's going to be normal to feel fear. It's going to happen for the rest of your life, but you do now want to let your fear control you. That is the choice that you get to make.
