I decided to write this Happy New Year post after watching my favorite movie, DUNE. As I was working and listning to the movie in the background I realized that another new year is almost upon us once again. Many of us will be planning to start new diets, a new homeschool semester, and new business endeavors. However, with that comes a whole heaping helping of fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of success and fear of failure to highlight a few fears. What does this all have to do with Dune you ask? Well in the movie there is a mantra recited by the Bene Gesserit's which is used to focus their minds. It goes like this.
I must not fear.
Fear is the mind killer.
Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
I know that the new year holds many new and interesting suprises for each of us. Hopefully, we will be able to meet the new year and all the suprises it will hold head on and fear will not keep us from mising out on some new and exciting things. You will get thinner, you will have an awesome homeschool semester, and you will have a successful business launch. Whatever you are going to be doing in 2012 I hope fear will not stifle your potential. BTW, stock up on some water and provisions, I heard the world will be ending this year. ;-)
Happy New Year!
