EP76 Mindset Monday – The SECRET to dealing with FEAR
In today’s episode of mindset Monday I talk about how to quickly and permanently deal with FEAR.
[00:00:12] KC: Welcome to today’s episode of Mindset Monday. My name is Keith Callahan, your host and today we’re talking about the secret to dealing with fear. I like coming up with these topics because if I really told you what we were gonna talk about you probably wouldn’t click on the episodes. We have these juicy titles. Today’s secret to dealing with fear is humility. Let me explain that a little bit more.
So as we grow up and we go through our lives and what happens is people usually start to create this identity that they are something, that they’re something separate from the world, that they’re something separate from, I’m gonna use the word “God”. You’re sitting right now on this massive planet that weighs god knows how many pounds, that’s floating out there in space. Something came together and created you and now you’re on this massive planet that’s floating out in space.
And somehow, some way we want to distance ourself from that. We want to be in control of our lives, and when we’re not in control of our lives, fear pops up, right? All that we need to do is remind ourselves that we are completely out of control, that we are humble human beings, living this human existence. But we didn’t create ourselves, we didn’t create this life. Like we’re literally along for this ride. And for me, you can transcend any of the fears you have, any of the pathological thinking, any of the negative thoughts, any of that stuff.
We have the ability to transcend it, and it’s by being humble, dropping to our hands and knees and saying – whether you call it the universe, whether you call it universal energy, whether you call it God, Buddha, Allah, Jesus – whatever your word is, whatever your phrase is, whatever your connection is, there’s a connection that goes like this, “Please help me. Please help me to stay close to you in my thoughts. Please help me to stay close to you in my heart. Please help me to be in full surrender. Please help me to release the grasping onto this illusion that I have all this control over my life.”
Because the control that we have friends, is that full surrender. That full surrender, that full connection, that full staying close. Just like a baby stays close to it’s mother, that’s how we wanna stay to our source. And when we humble ourselves in that way, when we stay that close to our source in all our interactions, in all that we do, that’s how we transcend fear. There’s all these other philosophies and systems and this and that, but that’s really what it boils down to. Trusting in that energy that created you, right?
That created the planets, that created the trees, that created the stars, the sun, the moon, the sky, the clouds. That same force created you, and when we stop trying to think that we’re smarter and more intelligent than that force and we surrender to it, we become at peace in our lives.
All right, have a beautiful, beautiful week. Thank you so much for tuning in as always, and we’ll see you next time.
[00:03:57] KC: Hey, Keith here, and today I have a free gift for you. Listen this free gift is a list of the 12 most influential books that I’ve ever read. These are the books that have helped me to create the mindset, learn the philosophies, learn the skills to really create this big, beautiful, life that we’re living now.
I read a crazy amount of books, I really do. I’ve probably read thousands of books and these are the top 12 books that – they’re the ones that I go to, they’re the ones that I work with over, and over, and over again. They are highlighted, outlined, dog-eared. And I put this list together for you because I want it to be a shortcut.
I don’t want you to have to – you don’t have to go out and read the thousands and thousands of books. These are the 12 that I highly recommend. I have a detailed review for each book, explaining why I recommend them, why I like them, when I worked with them in my life, what part of my life they helped me to improve.
So I put this together for you, and made it super each for you to get this list. All you have to do is send a text to the number 33444 and then in the body of that text, type in “12books” with no space. So that’s the number “12books”. Again, send the text message to the number, address it to 33444 and then type in “12books” as the message and just send that. And that’ll get you setup to receive those top 12 most influential books that have had the biggest impact on my life.
[00:06:01] KC: Today’s episode is brought to you by our sister podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. So All About Beachbody Coaching really allows us to do this podcast without having all those annoying commercials in the beginning for you. So All About Beachbody Coaching, the Beachbody business that Amy and I run, actually funds this podcast.
So yes, it does cost money to run this podcast, we do not charge you anything, we don’t throw in commercials or anything like that, it really is, it’s funded by our business and by our other podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. And for me, I’m just eternally grateful for this opportunity because it’s allowed me to really create the life that I love to live.
It’s given me the opportunity to do what I want, when I want, with who I want, and even deeper than that, it’s allowed me to help others to create the same for themselves. It’s allowed me to help hundreds of other people become part time or full time Beachbody coaches, to leave that corporate 9 to 5 job and create passive income in their lives.
And really there’s nothing like that. It’s cool when you have success, it’s so much more rewarding when you help others. So I mention this or a few reasons, the first reason is, that’s actually the way that I work with people and mentor people. I don’t do anything outside of Beachbody coaching because I know that it’s such a powerful life changing tool.
So if you’re curious about working with me, interested in working one-on-one, interested in creating the type of life that you wanna live, I suggest swinging over there. The other reason is, even if somebody’s just curious, like you’ve heard about Beachbody, you know there’s a lot of Beachbody coaches out there. Maybe some of them you get a little annoyed with.
It really dives into what this business is really about, which is life transformation. So if you’re just curious, swing over there. And then the other piece is, if you’re really considering becoming a Beachbody coach, I highly, highly recommend you listen to that first.
Alright, much love guys. Again, that is the All About Beachbody Coaching Podcast, our sister podcast.
