“Stuck in Doubt? 10 steps out.” – Jeff Bell

Tuesday, November 2, 2010. Today I am grateful for people such as Jeff Bell who choose to share their private embarrassing agony and show the way out.

In Jeff Bell’s book entitled When in Doubt, Make Belief: An OCD-Inspired Approach to Living with Uncertainty [not a religious book; field-tested and re-tested and re-re-tested strategies for confronting fear and worry], he gives us 10 certain steps out of our personal quagmires.

Everyone can learn these steps; they just take time and stick-to-it-iveness:

Step 1: Choose to see the universe as friendly

Step 2: Embrace the possibility in every moment

Step 3: Affirm your universal potential

Step 4: Put your commitments ahead of your comfort

Step 5: Keep sight of the big picture and the greater good

Step 6: Claim and exercise your freedom to choose

Step 7: Picture possibility and “direct” your attention

Step 8: Act from abundance in ways that empower

Step 9: Accept and let go of what you cannot control

Step 10: Allow for bigger plans than your own to unfold

Here’s to 10 steps out!
