"If you play it safe in life you've decided that you don't want
to grow any more."
-- Shirley Hufstedler
How are you sabotaging your potential for change?
We unconsciously use defence mechanisms to shield us from
situations we perceive to be scary or painful. A part of you may
want to grow and change, but another part may be resisting
because change always moves you into new territory in your
thinking and emotions.
If you find you are getting anxious, fearful, angry, frustrated,
dismissive or unmotivated, then defence mechanisms are at work.
Watch for them and know them to be signs of fear that wants to
hold you back. Then courageously move through them.
"I have never been contained except I made the prison."
