The 100 Day Reality Challenge

In the book Drive, Daniel Pink talks about how we can be motivated to work at certain tasks for it's own pleasure, and how that can actually get stifled if monetary or other extrinsic rewards are added. I realized as I red over the weekend that this is largely what's happened to my own learning with regards to work: As I've become more stressed about getting in more students, making more money, it's actually be harder for me to derive the same satisfaction from the job. This meshes with something I learned earlier, that I can only do my best if I can lose all fear of the outcome. Now comes the next question: How does one lose fear of the future?

Thanks for your advice Jeni. For me, I think I need to understand how my fear finds 'evidence' that the universe is working against me, so I can recognize that it's an outdated belief and let it go. A big part of my problem with dealing with my fear is a part of my conscious brain believes that fear is justified.

I would say to lose fear of the future, you must surrender yourself to trusting the Universe's timing. Be excited in the here and now for your future because what it holds for you is a complete mystery. Your future is a surprise from the Universe, so just wait for it, trust it, and be in the moment! (Easier said than done... I'm having a similar struggle right now)
