“Hold up your cup here is some positive tea that I want to pour out for you”.
Are you a FEAR KICKER?
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” — Nelson Mandela
The number one barrier to living confidently is FEAR. You, quite frankly, deal with it every day in small and large doses. Fear has a way of keeping you in prison and preventing you from living the big life you imagine. Fear is the little monster that sits on our shoulders, holding us back from growth, success, fulfillment and happiness.
It’s fear that prevents you from being an entrepreneur.
It’s fear that stops you from ending a relationship you know is wrong for you.
It’s fear that invades your thinking while taking an exam.
It’s fear that hold you from living your best life.
Sometimes we are aware of our fear, but much of the time, we are so “used to it” that it becomes our normal.
Obviously, this is a HUGE problem!
WAKE up reader. “Fear is STEALING your life!”
Fear is taking stealing everything that you suppose to have, like love, joy, peace, and happiness.
I always say, your fear should not have a cozy room in your life. “Whatever you do — don’t let your fear live with you. KICK FEAR TO THE CURB.”
I’ve spent many years of my life believing, one day, I’ll be the person I was meant to be. I waited and hoped, and I circled my comfort zone like a sad puppy. I now realize the key is to get beyond that and take risks without letting the fear of failure take over.
By taking calculated risks, not being afraid to try new things, and continually challenging ourselves, it becomes easy to cultivate openness to new experiences.
If you want to live fearlessly, you absolutely must let go of some beliefs and actions. Here are some of them:
What other people think of you. You will never please everyone, and it is hardly worth sacrificing yourself to entertain some other person’s beliefs about who you should be or what you should do.
Fear of failing. You will fail. Again and again and again. Legendary speaker Les Brown said, “You will fail your way to success.” It is an inevitable part of success. Accept that, and failure won’t be so intimidating.
The discomfort of fear. Fear is annoying or uncomfortable. No one likes to be sitting in fear. We’ll do just about anything to bypass it. But you must know from experience, it is temporary. And it doesn’t kill you.
Fear disappears when confronted!
As I conclude this article, do what scares you. Start small: take baby steps. If your dream is to speak in front of a room, but the thought overwhelms you with fear, start by speaking alone in a room. Then begin speaking in front of a small crowd. While speaking you may feel fear creeping in, but keep going and eventually it will leave.
“Feel the fear and keep climbing anyway.”- Lyoshi Esters
As for me, I made a conscious decision to change my perspective while seeing the challenges before me and saying, “I’m doing it anyway.”
If you are fearful of something — starting a new job, learning something, public speaking, having an uncomfortable conversation — after reading this article, you now know what to do!
Confront your fear and say it like American comedian “Lil Duval”: I ain’t goin’ back and forth with you, I’m living my best life!! Smile!!
KICK FEAR TO THE CURB!
Hope your cup is full of positivity!
