Lesson 7 : Trample the terror barrier


The terror barrier is a psychological barrier we create for ourselves that is related to our self-image. It comes up whenever we are doing something we’re not used to doing or have never done before.

This lesson is about helping you start to see yourself doing the new thing that you want to do. It’s about stepping out and acting on it so you can get the results you want.

The information in this lesson builds on what we learned in Lesson Six—helping us create a new self-image that allows us to expand or step out of the box we created for ourselves—causing dramatic improvements to take place.

Understanding the terror barrier is one of the most important lessons in Thinking Into Results because it prepares you to make quantum leaps in the face of doubt and fear.

Key Points of the seventh lesson

    • Any time you are setting a goal that results in you skipping a couple of rungs on the ladder of success, you will run up against The Terror Barrier.
    • Whenever you go to make a serious change in life style (moving out of your comfort zone), you run up against the terror barrier.
    • With any change that would come under the category of a major change in your behavior, the terror barrier will instantly and automatically be standing between you and the good that you desire.
    • When this happens you have a choice—you can step back into safety and continue to experience the same results year after year, or you can be courageous and experience the growth that you have been seeking.
    • The Four Steps in the Psychological Process of Experiencing Growth Dealing With the Terror Barrier: Step number one in the psychological process of experiencing growth dealing with the Terror Barrier is Bondage.
    • The second step in the psychological process of experiencing growth dealing with the Terror Barrier is Reason. In this illustration the person continues to get X type results—results they do not want—which are caused by the X type conditioning. And even though on a conscious level they create an idea of living the life they do want, illustrated by the Y, nothing in their results change because they just deal with the Y idea on an conscious level and because they have not internalized it, they do not act on it. So the person can mentally see themselves with what they want. They can even think about what they want. But nothing in their life changes because they have never internalized the idea.
    • The third step in the psychological process of experiencing growth by dealing with the Terror Barrier is Conflict. Before we cover the state of Conflict, it is important for us to bring to your attention again that the ideas a person is emotionally involved with control the vibration they are in. Vibration on a conscious level is referred to as feeling, and although the results they are getting are what they do not want, they feel comfortable in the vibration they are in because they have been living with it every day, probably most of their life.
    • Understanding permits a person to step forward into growth and freedom. The doubt, fear and anxiety have not left; however, through understanding or study, they know if they persist it will leave.

    The greatest deterrent that is stopping a person from going through the terror barrier to freedom is ignorance.


We use repetition to learn and impress upon the subconscious mind.

We use reflection also to learn and to help make connections between what we are taught in theory and what we need to do in practice.
