If left to fester and control our lives, fear eventually leads us to stop trying new things. Our comfort zone pulls tight around us and is rarely pushed further out than it needs to be. We feel stale, lethargic and wonder what's missing in our lives. Our creative energy is replaced with a survival instinct. On a subconscious level we start to really believe that we aren't good enough, or that there's no way possible that we can achieve something new or take a risk. On a conscious level our body and mind responds to being fed negative statements and responds by firmly stating -

"I can't do it!"

What do 'fine', 'okay', 'not too bad', 'all right', 'pretty good' and allrepparttar other non-responses really mean? Absolutely nothing. They mean nothing becauserepparttar 123951 question that they answer usually means less than nothing.

'How are you', 'how're you doing', 'how'srepparttar 123952 family' are meaningless punctuation. Most oftenrepparttar 123953 person asking is not even looking at you - and rarely are they listening to your equally meaningless answer.
