ACIM for Work Life: Fear is Always a Sign of Strain




When you are asked to do what you don’t like, you will feel drained, tired and listless, aren’t you? Your mother asks you to clean up your room, you are irritated. You grumble, you make a fuss and you just push everything into an over-loaded drawer. Slam it shut and whine. You hated it.

You are stuck in your job as a Secretary when your heart screams for a piano.  Your mum wants you to play the violin, but all you want to play is football. You are a CEO of a firm but all you want is to take a time off to participate in a cooking contest.  You drag your feet to work because you have a family of five to feed, you said.  What are you afraid of? What is the fear that holds you back from living the life you want?

Have you met with people who are constantly happy?  They come to work bright and sunny everyday. They smile a lot.  Many times you wondered why are they so happy, why are they smiling? Joy is always infectious. You have that piece of joy in you too, that’s why you remember how joy feels like. When you come across someone who shows you what joy looks like, you want that joy too. When you decide to show up in life doing what you love and loving what you do, you will experience lightness.
