There is a statement that says, “What we feed will grow”. If we feed on fear we will live a life controlled by fear, if we feed on faith we will live a life in love and faith. If you had or now have cancer, then you know, you cannot feed it.
What I mean by this is, Cancer loves to feed on stress! You need to stay as happy as possible and laugh a lot, cancer does not like laughter.
Fear is a deterrent that can hold you hostage and keep you from realizing your dreams. The presence of fear can serve as a self destructive force. It can reduce confidence in several of your everyday functions. The saying, “there’s nothing to fear but fear itself“, is absolutely true.
I believe everyone has had that moment when you wanted to do something but decided not to because of your fear.
You Fail to start a business, because fear of failure stops you.
You Fail to put your best effort into something, because you fear that your effort won’t be enough to help you succeed.
You Fail to do what you’re most passionate about, as your afraid you will fail.
Imagine if you could overcome your fear and start doing things that you really wanted to do, instead of accepting things that fear stops you from doing. Would you be happier? Would you achieve more out of life? Say you wanted to start a business, but fear of doing so, causes the image in your mind of you failing. Replace that negative image with a positive image of you succeeding in the business.
You can do the same thing with cancer. Replace the negative image of you getting sick and dying, with a positive image of you living a happy fulfilled life. Not everyone is lucky enough to beat cancer, but it really does help to keep a great attitude.
Take one step at a time!
Once you have conquered one of your fears, you will gain a new positive belief that you can conquer more fears. You will be amazed at what you can accomplish when you knock down your fears one by one. That is when you will start to truly enjoy your life to the fullest.
Faith is the victory in overcoming fear. Faith isn’t always about religion; it’s more about falling prey to false thoughts. If you take the time to feed your mind with positive thoughts, you will be able to conquer any challenges that life can offer.
There’s an old Native American story about a grandfather that is teaching an important life lesson to his grandson. The grandfather says: “I have two wolves fighting in my heart. One wolf is full of darkness; he is envious, resentful, fearful and deceitful.
The other wolf is full of light. He is loving, compassionate, generous, serene and truthful.”
The grandson asked his grandfather; “Which wolf will win?”
The grandfather replied, “The one I feed.”
Starve your fear, feed your life and you will find that you will become completely different all together. Then YOU can decide which one is better, Feeding your Fear or Feeding your Faith.
