The Best Ways To Overcome Fear
Are you able to overcome fear or do you find it hard to summon the strength to make it through scary situations?
Fear will be present in life, no matter what we do. There are two options when it comes to dealing with it.
We can either allow it to control us and limit our lives or we can rise above it and reap the rewards of our efforts.
When we have an understanding of what fear is and how to overcome it, it becomes much easier to face it head on and not allow it to govern your life.
Check out these helpful tips from Goodlife Zen.
What’s real about fear?
The only real aspects of fear are your annoying and uneasy feelings that escort your terror – the worry, anxiety, and irrational thinking.
The unpleasant physical symptoms of fear drain your energy – a sudden grab, a racing heart, your sweaty palms, shortness of breath and sleepless nights.
These feelings and symptoms are unbearable yet until the pain of staying stuck is greater than the pain it takes to grow forward, we suffer.
Our subconscious beliefs, our addiction to safety, and our past experience prevents up from taking the action needed to move out of our fear and into our greatness.
Tip #1: Don’t believe your thoughts
Drop your negative thinking and lack of faith in yourself or it will continue to snowball. Train your mind to create positive expectations. Learn to expect the best.
Tip #2: View life as a creative and wild adventure
Life can be brimming with easy times of beauty and light or overflowing with hard times of dark and difficulty. Choose to stay present through it all. Appreciate the varied landscape and enjoy the ride.
Tip #3: Consider the love of others
Who else in your life is missing out because of your fear of moving forward? Make a list of the people who will benefit from your success. Stay strong for them. Imagine telling them the “good news” in advance – I got the job, I made a difference, I wrote my book, we’re going on vacation!
Tip #4: Let go of the outcome
We often think we know what is best for us. We forget we can’t see the whole picture. Do what is yours to do and do it well. Like blowing a dandelion in the wind, let the rest go and remain open to infinite possibilities.
Tip #5: Be authentic.
In a world where everyone is trying to be someone else, be brave enough to be you. Nobody else has your thumb print, heart print, or soul print. Nobody else can do your part. Revel in your uniqueness.
