Mindful Monday #168 – Culture of Fear

It’s Monday! We are still in our first few weeks of November. 

In recent years, November has been and still is one of my favorite months. Each year at this time I write down the goals that I brain stormed during my birthday which occurs in September. I use this month to ground those goals and intentions into smaller steps.

This year is different because I found my true calling. For the first time I feel pulled towards my vision like gravity. What’s different is that I am eagerly walking towards it without resistance. There is so much unfolding in my life and so rapidly. I have so much I want to share with you.

I am in flow with life and it’s glorious.

Now that I am here there is one thing that I am starting to notice more and more each day.

I have been working on transitioning into a new career for awhile. The push at the present moment is for my health, my industry requires too much of me. It requires more than I want to give and more than I have already given. Now that I am at a place of seeing the horizon and seeing my calling all resistance I had to my transition has dissipated

In this new level of awareness, I see just how much my industry is rooted in and operates on fear. It’s everywhere. People are afraid to push back when boundaries are broken, when they are being taken advantage of or when they are delegated tasks that are above their pay scale. Yet people do what they have to do out of fear. Then there is a fear of not being seen in the right light if you complain, speak out of turn or even question a decision. People are afraid of loosing their job or getting their next job or getting that recommendation. It’s all fear based everything.

It’s very concerning how much fear dictates and rules the lives of people in my industry, but I feel that every industry operates on it to some degree. On top of the fear that people have when it comes to living and dying, relationships and family.

Nothing good comes when you operate on a place of fear.


For today’s Mindful Monday I offer meditate on two questions:

  • What is something good that has come from embracing fear into your life?
  • What is something you would do, if you were not afraid?
