Houston, We Have a Problem! – Step 3

A 5 Step plan that I can do to help dismantle the fear based thinking that dominates our planet.Now that I have completed Steps 1 and 2 of Houston’s 5 Step Plan to help redirect our planet’s course from one fueled by fear to one fueled by love, I’m ready for Step 3.

Step 1 – I must take full responsibility for my part in this problem.

Step 2 – I need to examine my beliefs and see which ones are leaking fear.

Step 3 – I must apologize for my words and actions and repair relationships, where possible. 

In taking an inventory of my words and actions, I have discovered numerous malfunctions, due to my fear based thinking, which need to be addressed and corrected.  I admit, I have judged, compared, blamed, criticized, and sought to find fault in others.  I have lied, deceived, and withheld from others. I have tried to control, intimidate, change, fix, and manipulate others. I have been untrue to myself and have gone along with the crowd thinking, even when I knew it wasn’t right.  I have been inconsiderate, greedy and selfish.  I have been unkind and unfriendly. I have gossiped, been defensive, argumentative, domineering, and spiteful.  I have used others to try to boost my self-esteem. I have people-pleased, enabled, and projected my fears onto others. I have been cynical, sarcastic, and pessimistic. I have been self-righteous and taken pleasure in seeing some people suffer the consequences of their behavior. I have been drawn to “trauma drama” and have been entertained by fear, anger, hate, and violence through books, movies, and TV shows.  I have used products that are not ethically made.
