Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway®
With Shirley Riga
Shirley has been living her spiritual
path for 25 years as a clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient. Upon reading twenty years ago "Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway", it helped her to put one foot in front of the other in her life of change and transition. Her personal desire is to help people understand their present purpose in this challenging, constantly changing world.
With compassion, understanding, and humor, Shirley shows you how to become more powerful in the face of your fears. In the true sense of workshop, Shirley teaches from her own life experience the proven techniques to a happier life. The time is at hand to take control of your life and define your happiness, joy and peace of mind.
Shirley's workshops are based on Susan Jeffers's book, "Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway." (You are encouraged to purchase the book.) She will be exploring with you the five truths about fear and how to quiet them down.
FEAR TRUTH #1
The fear will never go away as long as you continue to grow! Every time you take a step into the unknown, you experience fear. There is no point in saying, "When I am no longer afraid, then I will do it." You'll be waiting for a long time. The fear is part of the package.
FEAR TRUTH #2
The only way to get rid of the fear of doing something is to go out and do it! When you do it often enough, you will no longer be afraid in that particular situation. You will have faced the unknown and you will have handled it. Then new challenges await you, which certainly add to the excitement of living.
FEAR TRUTH #3
The only way to feel better about yourself is to go out and do it! With each little step you take into unknown territory, a pattern of strength develops. You begin feeling stronger and stronger and stronger.
FEAR TRUTH #4
Not only are you afraid when facing the unknown, so is everyone else! This should be a relief. You are not the only one out there feeling fear. Everyone feels fear when taking a step into the unknown. Yes, all those people who have succeeded in doing what they have wanted to do in life have felt the fear - and did it anyway. So can you!
FEAR TRUTH #5
Pushing through fear is less frightening than living with the bigger underlying fear that comes from a feeling of helplessness!
