Daily “Huh?”

Not every Daily “Huh?” will be a quote, but some quotes are just too good to pass up.

For example, look at this one from Barbara Sher:

 “Imaginary obstacles are insurmountable. Real ones aren’t. But you can’t tell the difference when you have no real information. Fear can create even more imaginary obstacles than ignorance can. That’s why the smallest step away from speculation and into reality can be an amazing relief. The Reality Solution means: Do it before you’re ready.

  1. It’s called a reality check: Checking out the difference between what can or cannot be real as found in perception, in contrast with what memory and imagination make of it. I have found through experience that most deceptions of this nature come from and through fear. Conquer your fears, and you will have come a long way in overcoming such confusions.
    But, I must admit, these are the norm within every day interpretations, for all of us. Seeing ‘reality’ can be a very difficult thing. How many of us get it right, half let alone all the time. But it’s the exaggerated occurrences that can cause problems and be labelled as ‘mental illness’.

  2. I love the quote. I often have imaginary obstacles. Now I know what to do about them.

  3. Ricky,
    I’ve found that a way to reduce fear is by studying and acquiring knowledge.
    Business faculties teach us that business people make decisions all the time without having all the information. So, a way of reducing risk is getting more pertinent information about the “problem”, “obstacle” (which is really an opportunity, you just need to flip the coin the other side at its face value).
    Read, read, read, research, do more research, investigate and never stop trying and making decisions along the way.

  4. I love this quote!

    If you think you can’t, you can’t. If you believe you can, you will find a way around, over, or under the obstacles in your path.

    Just start, and the way will teach you the way.

    Thanks, Rik.
