Today's Path: The Power of Harnessed Fear

Several times I have talked about fear. In a recent post I wrote about the power of harnessed fear. Well, truthfully, I have never harnessed my fear and used that power for what it should be used. That is until this weekend...

I stared fear in the eyes...I would have laugh, but I was afraid for the moment. I would go into detail about it, but due to the fact that it happened at work, I can only give you an overview.

There were a few issues today during the day...I guess I should describe the people involved first: Four men all close to six feet and taller, each weighing in at at least twice my weight (I know, that's not hard to do). Oh, and they probably each could have benched two of me. Then there was myself and one other person.

The men started yelling at each other, and I had to step inbetween them to keep anything from happening. Yeah, me stop anything from happenning. Me, a barely five foot and some change tall and 100lbs and some change, had to keep anything from happenning.

I had to look these men in the eye and tell them to sit down. I was TERRIFIED!!! Honestly, I was shaking for a good hour and a half after the incident.

What I am trying to say is, I took the energy from my fear, and I did what I needed to do. Even though I am five foot four, I felt seven feet tall.

I did not know what was going to come of the incident. I had to do my best and hope for the best outcome. Fear was all over me. Instead of showing my fearful energy, I took the energy to get the incident cleared up and finish my work.

If I can take my fear energy and get four men to sit down, I know that I don't need to be afraid of the intangible future because me in two pieces is what I thought my future was going to be today.

You never know what today is going to present. The outsome of today
