  1. Fear The Day You Realize You Have Lived Your Life as a Sellout

  2. Definition of a Sellout • This is the day you realize that you have been allowing fear to dominate how you live, why you do what you do, and even where you do it. • Just about every major decision you have ever made has been to please, appease, or somehow meet the needs of everyone-except yourself. • You have sold out yourself, your life, and your dreams because you were afraid you might fail or displease those people whose opinions you value.

  3. Living the fear-dominated life • Loss of the authentic self • Choices made are inconsistent with who you really are and what you believe. • You have allowed your own script to be traded for someone else’s idea of who you should be. • A need to have your worth and decisions validated by someone else. • You don’t aim to win; your goal becomes simply to not lose.

  4. “An interesting thing about integrity and self-acceptance is that when you’re comfortable in your own skin, other people sense it and usually end up respecting you a whole lot more than if you spent all your time trying to please them anyway.” -Dr. Phil MGraw

  5. Getting back to better days • Decide what you really care about • Determine how far off the course you are • Make a life decision to get back on track • Be true to yourself • Make it happen • Acknowledge your fears/challenge the irrational • Maintain your newfound freedom • Know that you’re not alone

  6. Addiction The Day Addiction Takes Over

  7. What is an addiction • It is a term used to explain an attraction or pathological attachment to a substance, such as a drug (prescription or illegal) or alcohol. • When you are truly addicted you can lose control and become totally focused on your addictive substance or behavior. • You become a slave to your addiction mentally, emotionally, behaviorally, and/or physically.
