Overcome fears by facing them

in #lifelast year

Wise people know the value of pushing the limits to achieve something big. We all want to be just like them; strong, fit and mentally and physically healthy. Yet, many of us are afraid of challenging ourselves. We think we are too weak to take on things big, or too scared to face life's tests. If we have reached the end of the rope and know that life can't get any worse, we shouldn't leave any stone unturned. All we need to do is set some basic limits.


It is part of what makes us human, in our pursuit of happiness. So fear is where we live, and one of the most dangerous enemies of your happiness is taking a fall. If we want to be happy, we have to learn how to deal with fear. Fear is a type of judgement. It creates a problem that you need to solve. You would rather avoid a real problem, instead of facing it head on. When you don't have to face it, it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. And you will experience the consequences of those thoughts.

But it doesn't have to be this way. How about if we can step outside of the box and actually put ourselves out there in the world? How about if we were able to speak out and say I will never do that? I’ll never, ever do that? This can provide us with a place to move on without wasting precious time. It is a common excuse among adolescents to tell themselves that they are just too immature and dependent to actually take risks

So, how do we overcome this fear of failing? And how do we keep failure from derailing our efforts to reach our goals? Of course, the first thing to recognize is that there's nothing inherently wrong with being afraid of failure. Just like taking chances in our quest for self-improvement, failing is a normal part of achieving new things. So, we can't expect our fears to keep us from taking that risk.

And because we avoid those things, we end up doing the same thing over and over again until we've exhausted ourselves and our time is wasted. But, you have the power to change that. As you develop your imagination, you are much more likely to decide to take your life seriously. You are more likely to succeed. You are more likely to be motivated. You are more likely to accomplish the things you want. You can create better and more productive habits, habits that will help you improve.


Most of us believe that acting from a place of fear would be a recipe for disaster. Except, of course, that when we're afraid of something, we are prone to action. We get out there, start running, getting in shape, learning new things, doing things that really matter to us, because we are terrified of being in the wrong place or doing the wrong thing. So fear is actually a good thing when we use it

Unfortunately, many of these fears are unjustified, and while they may be valid for some aspects of human behavior, they are completely invalid for others. Taking risks, holding to our goals, and not giving up on a goal or approach, are all true learning experiences. Take a look at the road to success that our brains build in us, and don't worry about being right.
