FUD
fəd/
noun
noun: FUD; plural noun: FUDs

  1. fear, uncertainty and doubt, usually evoked intentionally in order to put a competitor at a disadvantage.
    "the FUD factor"

Origin
acronym.


I was reading an article online the other day. It was about real estate, but it could have been about anything. The writer, Brad Inman, a real estate writer/guru, said that the guy he was writing about "was the master of FUD.'

I'd never heard of FUD. So I looked it up on the internet. It means Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt/Disinformation.

Aha! I believe that our country is full of FUD at a most inopportune time. But I think that is what FUD is about...about our fears, our uncertainty, our doubts. Or better yet, somebody who wants us to be full of FUD, without knowing that we're being influenced by thoughts of others, that creep into our mind suptlely taking over our thoughts. Kind of like hypnotizing. No - really like hypnotizing.

So knowing that, I will rise above FUD. It will take some mental strength and mental effort. As I've been taught over the years, I'll claim back my thoughts...I won't let another person's thoughts butt in. I'll fully realize that I am my own person, not being controlled by another. 

That doesn't mean I won't be nice...but I find myself walking away from petty (or harsh) arguments to re-gain my mental strength once again. Or while in a meeting I'll just take a quiet mental stance. 

No FUDs here!

Live richly, marilyn
