OVERCOME YOUR FEARS!

"Fear is the most subtle and destructive of all human diseases. Ladies and gentleman, fear kills dreams. Fear kills hope. Fear put people in the hospital. Fear can age you. Fear, ladies and gentleman, can hold you back from doing something that you know within yourself that you are capable of doing, but it will paralyze you. And it seems like you are in a hypnotic spell. And I ask you a question: what is the benefit? What’s the benefit of allowing fear to hold you back? What’s the benefit of giving up on yourself? Of not stepping out on life and taking life on? What is the benefit for you? What’s the plus in that?”

FEAR- One of the most common emotions presented in my clients, is fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of being hurt, fear of not being enough. The persistent thoughts of fear, ruminating in their mind, makes it difficult to not feel anxiety, depression and other mental health symptoms.


Most realize on a logical, conscious level that their fears might be somewhat, if not fully, irrational or they know their fear is consuming them, but they do not know how to overcome it. As humans, we are wired to repeat patterns of behavior unconsciously because it's in our nature for survival. When we allow ourselves to become aware of our thoughts and feelings and work consistently to re-wire our pattern, that is when change happens!


Lets think for a moment, right now.....What is something you FEAR? Is the negative thought surrounding it realistic? If so, lets focus further on that. What is the worse that could happen, hypothetically speaking?

What is the best possible outcome? NOW think to yourself..... is the risk worth taking? Is the reward greater than the risk? DO YOU WANT IT MORE THAN YOU FEAR IT? That is the KEY question to ask yourself.


What good is fear doing for you, if it is only holding you back from the possibility of achieving happiness in your life? The happiness you will feel when you overcome fear and allow yourself to take action to achieve whatever it is you're trying for. THNK ABOUT IT! If you do not allow yourself to be in the present moment and do your best to achieve whatever it is you want, by being open to receiving it.....you're only emotionally and energetically blocking yourself and you will fail by default, and have no one and nothing to blame but yourself. You WILL be stuck in exactly the same mental state you are in currently with that fear.


SOOOOO! Take the chance. Allow yourself to step outside your comfort zone. And believing in the possibility that everything will work out for you in your favor and if it doesn't, at least you know you tried. BUT.....even if it doesn't work out the way you want it to, it doesn't mean that it still can't find a way to benefit you. Maybe it's a momentary delay or maybe the rejection of what you thought you wanted, leads you to something better! BE OPEN MINDED!


Plans change. Things alter in life. But if you keep focused on your goal. You will eventually achieve it.


Example: J.K Rowling who wrote the Harry Potter series. Prior to being published, It was the most devastating period of Rowling's life where she was divorced, jobless, and a single mother of an infant. She suffered severe bouts of depression and when she submitted her novels, she was rejected 12 times.

She probably felt hopeless, defeated, angry, sad, miserable and many other negative emotions at that time. But she didn't allow those challenges or rejections to stop her persistent belief in her novel. Eventually she was published and sold over 400 million copies worldwide, later having the books become films and she is now the wealthiest author.


There are many examples of people like her. The common denominator within all those who overcame their "darkest" moments, is PERSISTENCE, DETERMINATION, HOPE and ALLOWING themselves to step outside their comfort zone, because they wanted what they wanted more than they feared it.


WAYS TO OVERCOME YOUR FEARS

  1. Want whatever it is more than you fear it and remind yourself it is worth the risk

  2. Make a list of all the ways you can achieve your goal

  3. Everyday do something that benefits you and helps you get closer to achieving it

  4. Believe in yourself and allow yourself to be open minded to change might alter the path of achieving what you want, but nevertheless, persist!

  5. It is okay to feel the emotions of fear, try to re-frame your thoughts in the moment of feeling fear and do not allow the negative to consume you. Keep reminding yourself of the positive!
