Love or Fear…Which is More Powerful?

Love or fear…

Which is more powerful?

Some qualities of love are long-suffering, kindness, being a cheerful giver, behaves decently and respectfully, looks for good in others, forgives freely, and puts others interests before their own. It bears, hopes and endures all things. Love never fails, because there is no fear in love. It throws fear outside. All these qualities have to do with relationships with people, not things. So when you love people, your passion and desire is to help and serve them.

On the flip side is fear which is the cause of all unhappiness and lack of fulfillment. It is the primary cause of all negative emotions which move you out of the love state and therefore causes you to settle for far less than you really choose.

We all have inner fears, such as, “not being enough”, “not having enough”, “not feeling good enough”, and the list goes on. When the fear is stronger than our passion and desire (or the love state), we become imprisoned by our will. It causes us to make decisions and behave in ways that keep us from our desires. So the world moves on as you watch in a paralyzed state of fear. This fear will STOP you in your business! And remember any business is about people, not things like money! Because without people we have NO business.

So, your desire (love of people) must be stronger than your fears. The desire is so strong you walk through obstacles like they weren’t there. You find ways to overcome them. What can help you overcome the obstacles is courage. Courage is obtained by doing. It can be developed in any life skill and gets stronger with practice. When I first started public speaking years ago, it took a lot of courage for me to do that. But the more I did, the easier it got. If you invest time in your desires and passions, in other words, people, the less time you devote to fear and worry.

Figure out what your passion and desire is to help people, and then focus on that. Let those desires and dreams be your compelling drive to get you to the next level in your business and in your life. Once you know what your passion and desire is, map out a goal blueprint of the steps you need to achieve it. Being clear about who you choose to be causes the universe to align to your potential.

So, back to the question.

Love or fear…

The answer is…

Whichever one you choose!

    Carol,

    Thanks for the great post! Action is essential to achieving goals as well as getting over fears. We must always be pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone in order to improve.
