Q&A: Knowledge Is Not Enough
This post is in response to a question posed to an earlier post: Fear of Rejection.
“What do I do about it? Knowing is not enough to change me.”
True. Simply knowing that you struggle with the fear of rejection is not enough to stop the behaviors that result from this deep-rooted limbic reaction in making daily choices. What you need to do is the focus on recognizable patterns of action witnessing to the presence of this fearful bias. Think about how you would rather see outcomes and deliberately go against your natural inclinations to receive those outcomes. When you become accustomed to looking ahead and strategically changing your behaviors, you’ll see the up-swing in your results.
I know this is simple, but stay tuned for my Daddy Broke My Heart memoir coming to you early next month. I go deeper into the details of how to counteract all the daddy issues the blog has helped you uncover. I’m spending a lot of time building that content because the manuscript is due to my editor on the 19th of December, next week! Needless to say, my focus is more there than expounding here. Bare patiently with me, you won’t be disappointed!
