“Gratitude is the antidote to the two things that stop us: fear and anger.” –Tony Robbins
When considering the moves we want to accomplish and big dreams we want to fulfill– and all the seeming figuring it out and/or blind faith we’ll need to invest to “make it happen” — it’s easy to get afraid, whether we admit it or not.
Most won’t admit that fear to others, and many won’t admit it to themselves. Yet, the projects, launches and big moves just seem to get pushed back for many very good and logical reasons.
What if enough gratitude — for the growth opportunity, the challenge, the chance to work the muscle — could displace the fear?
WD40 was invented during the Cold War to prevent rust and corrosion on missiles…
with WD meaning “water displacement”.
Perhaps a shot of gratitude displacement can loosen up our frozen forays forward?
“Gratitude and fear can’t stand the site of each other.” –Robin Sharma
