Abundance or Fear?
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where a friend / person made a choice that felt like it was based on fear? I recently had this experience and it kind of triggered me.
Let me get a little more clear. I was planning an event and one of the attendees suggested we hold the event at a specific location, which happened to be a mutual friend’s business. The reason was to be more convenient for some of the attendees geographically. What transpired was a little surprising… the venue owner/friend communicated to the attendee that the space was not available unless I was willing to pay a percentage of my earnings for the event.
As a business person… I totally get this mindset and the decision. The way it transpired felt much different as you might imagine. It was hard to swallow the fact that my friend / business owner didn’t reach out to me directly. How would you feel in this situation? In the end, we chose a different location, which was perfect. Now that the experience has passed, I still wonder...what created that response?
Have you experienced a fear response before? Maybe you were the one who expressed fear. I have totally been there! Either way, there is no judgement… my intention here is to open the dialog for supporting each other in a mutually abundant way. How can we invite fear to take the back seat and abundance take the wheel?
I’d love to hear your input. How have you responded from a place of fear? What would you do differently now?
