Disobeying Fear

Disobeying Fear by Become Your Own Guru

A lonely IT guy named Jason Comely got fed up after his wife left him and he realized he was afraid of rejection. So, he started getting rejected ON PURPOSE! He dreamed up a bunch of different ways he could get rejected and tried them out. By confronting his fear head on, he soon got to the point where he was no longer afraid of rejection. He even created a deck of cards called the Rejection Therapy game!  His game gave me the idea of creating my own cards.

What do you fear the most?  How will your life shift when you DISOBEY what that fear tells you to do or not to do?

If you'd like to make your own DISOBEYING FEAR cards, start by making a list of the things you fear the most. One of my fears is confrontation. So I decorated the front of my card with that word. To decorate the back of the cards, write down CONCRETE things you can do to face that fear--maybe doing the opposite of what you would normally do. I plan to make a deck of 30 cards and to draw a different card each day of the month. So, when I draw the "Confront" card, instead of avoiding confrontation, I will think about someone with whom I've had a conflict, and I will work with them to settle our difference. 

I hope you'll make and use  your own DISOBEYING FEAR card deck! Remember what Marianne Williamson says: "As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
