Stress Management: KYFM - Keep Your Feet Moving

One of my favorite stories about change is the story called ``The Room of 10,000 Monsters. ''

In this room, all your worst fears, anxieties and nightmares are played out in front of you as if they were real. You walk in and close the door behind you. There is no handle on the inside of the door. The only door with a handle is across the room.

If you can walk across the room and reach the door, you will reach Nirvana. You have to go by yourself, and you get only two pieces of advice:

The first is no matter what you see, hear or feel, remember that it's not real, it's just taken from your own imagination. That's good advice, but if your biggest fear is of heights and you see yourself on the edge of a 20-story building, you're not likely to get anywhere.

The second piece of advice is that no matter what you see, hear or feel, keep your feet moving, and you will get to the other side.

The moral of the story:

Even in the face of rejection, keep your feet moving!

When you are tuned into the station KYFM - Keep Your Feet Moving(TM) you won't get stuck in fear, you keep making progress no matter what.
