The Monster Under The Bed

May 20, 2016

This is often urban legend for kids

The monster under the bed or in the cupboard

Hell there is a movie about it

But as we grow up, we move on from this and we no longer need to check to see if there is anything hiding under our bed

But the problem is that there is still monster’s they just form in other places

We need to check our mind for the monsters that are hiding there

And often they come in the form of fear

This is the monster that holds you back

It stops you from doing the things that you want or know you should do

It’s greatest weapon is excuses and this is how we recognize the monster

We can always find an excuse not to do something, there are endless supply of them

And these excuses can cripple, can stop you taking the plunge into something that you know is good for you or something that will make a lasting impact on your life

Yes fear can be justifiable, but it doesn’t mean it’s right

In fact it often means that you won’t do the thing that could fix your fear

But just like when you where a kid and you where afraid of the monster the best way to deal with it, is to stand up look it square in the face and say I am not afraid of you

This takes courage and something more than just giving into your excuses

But the reward on the other side is freedom and often something wonderful

So stand up to your monster today, put aside all the reasons as to why not and say yes to all the things that are spurring you on.

It will be the best decision you have made this week, nah this month, I’d even go as far as this year, maybe more depending on who you ask.

Leigh said it has been 2 decades she had been fighting the “monster” in this case weight and she is now conquering it.

Are you ready?

Until next time,

Lachlan “The Monster Slayer” Farley
