Veronica and I discuss (11) steps 6 & 7

What are character defects? Why do we need to get rid of them? We discuss how character defects such as fear and selfishness block us form becoming the best version of ourselves.

The full list of character defects are: selfishness, self-seeking, dishonesty and fear.  As Veronica says ‘this is the beginning of a shift in our perception’ because these four things are limiting to us and block our growth.

This is all about ‘if you love something let it go’ and being NATO – not attached to the outcome – two things I really struggle with and have to work very hard to manage invariably muttering the serenity prayer under my breathe at the time! 😉

  1. great vid so thank you both! fear is/was the big one for me, too…. Veronica’s line that ‘every decision she has made based on fear has turned out to be the wrong one’ gave me the shivers. so true.

    also liked that she described all these as ‘the good stuff’. this is where the magic happens, indeed!

    oh and I’ve used your NATO acronym SO many times and it is BRILLIANT! xx

    1. Glad you liked Prim and yep the NATO one is used by me in this household almost as much as the Serenity Prayer! 😉 xx

  2. Hi Lucy!
    My whole life has been run on fear! I am learning to have more courage in my final years on earth!
    Peace and Hugs,

    1. Hey Wendy! Fear was a big driver for me too – what’s the acronym? False Expectations Appearing Real. Yup that was me also …. 204 days Woo hoo!! – nothing to fear there 😉
