FEAR is The Mindkiller – The Litany


I put up a longer blog post you can find it you click on the image below, but here is the quip part of that message relating to:

fear is the Mindkiller

From Frank Herbert’s Dune book, the first of his famous trilogy, we get the Bene Gesserit litany of:

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

Pretty cool framework for operating, I think.

Deal with it! Understand it and let it pass over and through. Then reflect on it and learn from it for future events.

And on the other blog, you can see where I link into to coaching and problem solving,

For the FUN of It!
