What Would Bond Do?

In an old episode from The Flintstones, Fred is mistaken to be "Rocky Bond" and both him and Barney are taken to a mysterious island by an arch-villain to be killed. Of course, they are terrified and at a loss. At one particular moment, Barney asks Fred: "What would Rocky Bond do?" and as they answer that question, they find their way out of their predicament.
Who is Bond? A man without fear and without insecurities.
Finding ourselves in a particular predicament, it is useful then to ask: "What would Bond do?"
or, in other words:

What would the Being do if I was suddenly free of all fear and insecurity?

The beauty of the question is that it can be answered. And not with generalities, but with very specific actions that we can see before us and that fit the particular situation that is before us.

We can develop a habit of asking ourselves this question in small, daily situations. As the habit becomes stronger, we will be able to ask it when we find ourselves in a mysterious island away from our home and with nobody else around to help us.
