Is fear stopping you in your tracks? Is fear of "something" holding you back? Fear of "what if", fear of weight gain, fear of failure, fear of a loss, fear of being misunderstood, fear of being nothing.... sounds familiar to you? I understand this feeling far to often. I fear a lot, no I fear daily.
“What we fear of doing most is usually what we most need to do” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Change is scary. Change is hard and can stop you from putting yourself out there to even see if it could work. But what if it does? What if the very thing you feared was the one thing that was holding you back from reaching your fullest potential?
How can you break through your fear to unleash your highest self? The reason is that fear only gets loud when you do things that matter. Fear never bothers you if you're average but the second you dare to be more than ordinary, fear awakens. Risks are met with fear, which can cause people to question their ambitions and prevent them from taking action.
One thing I want you to understand is that fear is absolutely normal. Even the best experience fear from time to time. The key is to not let fear hold you back and prevent you from taking action and go after what you want in life.
How to overcome your fear:
Develop mantras and affirmations that build you up and increase your self-confidence. Read uplifting books to help interrupt the negative inner dialogue that goes on in your mind.If you don’t take the initiative to rewire your brain, life will do it for you.
Plan your goals. Things that are not detailed or planned out cause anxiety and stress. Set extremely clear goals with a detailed plan on how to achieve those goals. After you have a well detailed plan, take action.Taking action towards meaningful goals helps to relieve stress and gives you a huge sense of enjoyment. Fear creeps in and paralyzes us when we don’t take the time to plan our lives.
Do one thing every day that scares you. Living in our comfort zone is not the best way to live. Not doing the things that frighten you will increase the likelihood that your fears will become bigger – and taking over your life. It can even be something small that you choose to do, but do something daily that scares you. Step out of your comfort zone and work on becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable. When you form the habit of doing something daily that scares you, your courage grows little by little. Soon enough, the barriers that once were holding you back vanish and your potential maximizes tremendously.
Everything that you want in life is past your comfort zone.
