"The Law of Attraction is a metaphysical New Thought belief that 'like attracts like,' that positive and negative thinking bring about positive and negative physical results, respectively." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_Attraction

What am I attracting into my life? what are you attracting in your lifeFor better or for worse you are attracting what you are right now. Christopher Franklin

One of the most difficult truths to face is the mirror of our lives and attitudes as reflected by the people and circumstances that surround us. When we are caught in a cycle of fear, in negative attitudes, and relationships, either at work or in the home, the last thing we want to hear is that we are creating our own misery. We don't want to be told that our thoughts and beliefs have contributed to, or are creating and attracting the pains we are trying so hard to escape. Instead we want to assign blame, to run away.  Denial, paralysis, indecision and procrastination are all attitudes and escape patterns that find their root in fear, the ego's fear of dissolution.

Examining the negative relationships that we have had with old bosses, or that we have now with the colleague in the cube across from us, is uncomfortable. We don't want to accept responsibility for the friction or conflict in our lives. Accepting responsibility for the negative behaviors we have exhibited or attitudes we hold might mean reevaluating our sense of self. We might have to give up a core belief which helps us define who we are. We might have to change and grow.

Moving out of fear requires more than simply accepting what is in the circumstances around us. It requires that we accept the truth about what is within our own attitude and ego drivers.

In order to free ourselves to do our best work we have to assess the truth about the negative impact our thoughts and attitudes are having, and to accept responsibility for what we find. Until we can do that, we are trapped in fear patterns and behaviors that limit our progress and rob us of the success we desire.

Accepting what is: the first step in practicing Unfear.
