Day with a Difference – 17-Sep-12

Quote of the day
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
~Frank Herbert
Thought of the day – Here are 7 powerful tips to help you become fearless
1. Start by becoming aware. Notice when you experience feelings of fear (you’d be surprised how much of our time is spent unconsciously experiencing fear, worries, and anxiety)2. Next time you notice the fear inside you, remind yourself that it’s ‘all in the mind’ and that ‘80% of fears NEVER HAPPEN’3. Ask yourself – what’s the worst thing that can happen if I do this?4. Write down a few ways to deal with the worst case scenario – often when we get our thoughts out of our heads and down onto paper the fear will disappear

5. Ask yourself – ‘how is this fear impacting my life?’ It’s important to realize what you’ve got to lose by staying paralyzed by fear

6. Take a deep breath and tackle your fear head-on – you may be surprised to find that ‘it wasn’t as bad as you thought it would be’

7. High five yourself for being ‘FEARLESS’ – you could even reward yourself afterwards for all your hard work


Joke of the day
There once was a flight heading from London to New York. Halfway during the flight, the captain suddenly comes over the intercom system…”This is Captain Jean-Pierre Lalonde speaking. I have a bit of bad news for you. We have lost our first left engine, but never fear, we can still make it using only three engines. But because of the loss of power, we will be two hours late.”Time goes on, and once again the PA system crackles to life…”This is again your Captain. We have lost an engine on our starboard wing. But rest assured that our plane can fly using only two engines. Due to the reduced power, we will now be four hours late.”

The flight goes on, when the passengers hear the now familiar sound of the address system…

“Guess what, folks! We lost another engine, but nothing to fear. We can still make it using only one engine. But now we will be six hours late.”

On hearing this, an elderly lady turned to the person sitting next to her, and said: “I hope we don’t lose ANOTHER engine. I’ll be late for my connecting flight from New York!”

Have a fearless week ahead!Regards,
