hormesis of the soul

Scott Sonnon:

Make stress your ally to defeat anxiety.

personal power grows like a muscle
if it is regularly challenged
with progressive overload

you gotta get into the habit of pushing through your fears
by acting on your deepest impulses

doing it for yourself
not in order to impress others
but to impress and
-by the same token-
EXPRESS yourself

fears are but sign-posts on your path
guiding you

to paraphrase a passage from the movie Jacob’s Ladder:
‘if you are frightened of letting go and acting out
and you are holding back
you will see demons tearing your life away
but if you surrender and yield beyond them
then the demons are really angels freeing you from suffering’
