Over the last few weeks, you’ve learned about Limiting Beliefs, Assumptions and Interpretations and how these barriers can be terribly destructive in your relationships. This week let’s tackle the last, but certainly not the least, of the four relationship destructors, your GREATEST FEAR. Your greatest fear is very personal and it is rooted deeply inside us and carries the most intense emotional charge of the four destructors. It is a stronghold that will keep you running, fighting or completely feeling stuck in your relationships.
Greatest Fear: The greatest lie you tell yourself.
Our greatest fear is that deep rooted, ugly lie that keeps you playing safe and small in your relationships and in every other area of your life. This debilitating lie continues to whisper in your ear “I’m not good enough”, "I'm not valuable", “I’m not worthy” or “I’m not loveable”. When you can identify your greatest fear and recognize when that lie pops up, it can begin to lose its power. When you choose to believe the truth of who you were created to be, you can show up in your relationships as the best version of yourself.
-What is the lie that I tell myself when I’m feeling pain, embarrassed, rejected or alone?
-How would your relationships be different if this lie, your greatest fear, were quieted?
-What can you do the next time your greatest fear whispers in your ear?
