When everything feels all over, When everybody seems unkind

Latest self help book, more on fear, here's my notes --

1 -- fear will never go away as long as you grow

2 -- the only way to get rid of the fear of doing something is to go out and do it

3 -- the only way to feel better about yourself is to go out and do it

4 -- not only are you going to experience fear, so will everyone else

5 -- fear of being helpless is worse than pushing through fear

-- move yourself from a position of pain to a position of power

-- love and power go together, with no power love is distorted

-- i am powerful and i am loving, i am powerful and i am loved, i am powerful and i love it

-- do you see yourself as a victim, or do you take responsibility? never blaming anyone or anything for what you are doing or feeling -- blaming is giving away all your power -- griping is a habit, get rid of it, it will take time -- don't make yourself a victim of yourself -- always do the best given the person you are at the time

-- taking responsibility means taking control of the chatterbox inside, the doom and gloom condescending 'troll' inside

-- we usually anticipate the worse, saying yes dilutes the fear and calmly handles the situation

-- saying no resists opportunities and creates apathy
