Reassurances are the fuel on which feelings of safety run.
The overwhelming need for more reassurances often stops us from doing the courageous work that matters.
The resistance (the Lizard Brain) is driven by the need for safety, which is why reassurances are so useful as a tool to drive people forward to accomplishing work.
Or why they are so useful for dulling people toward doing work that matters; in essence, lulling them into a false sense of safety.
If a person is seeking for more reassurances that the path they are walking is the right one, or that the method of management of a conflict that they’ve chosen will “work,” or if they don’t really want to know the details….
Well, there will never be enough reassurance.
Which means you will never get all the safety you need.
Which means you’ll react with a posture of fear when a new idea, concept, or approach is brought to you.
Which means that all the tools and tips in the world won’t really work for you.
Which means that we’ll never get the emotional labor from you that we really need to make the changes that are necessary in the world.
Stop looking for more reassurances.
Start getting comfortable with the fact that there will never be enough.
Move forward courageously with whatever decisions you’ve made, without self-doubt, or fear.
