How to Conquer FEAR
FULL PODCAST EPISODE 026
What are some things preventing you from being your greatest self? Everyone goes through similar obstacles, and today’s topic is fear. My acronym for fear is forget everything and run, but the problem with this, as my mentor used to tell me, is that anything denied or suppressed will be expressed in later days and uglier ways. Some may say courage is the absence of fear, but in reality courage is doing the right thing in the presence of fear, so look at fear as a tool to strengthen your character.
Fear and excitement are two sides of the same coin. For example, if I said hey let’s go skydiving, some would say it’s too scary, while others would say it’s scary but exhilarating, so are you really scared or just nervously excited? Even the words you say change the emotion and slightly raise your vibration. See fear as an invitation to step into what you’re afraid of. Face it, you’re not listening to this podcast so that you can go back and be the same person. If fear is dictating your life, it’ll lead you to playing small, which makes everyone else suffer as your actions impact the world. If you’re making decisions based on exhaustion and fear, then you’re not making the right decision.
Unfortunately, the closer you get to your destination, the more the fear steps in, and the more you will be tested. You’ve got to be able to flip the switch and move into your fear. There’s a famous quote that says a coward dies a thousand times, but a courageous person dies but once. If you believe you could play life better, should you? If it’s available then why not! Your brain tends to run away from unpredictability, so create this habit one step at a time.
Don’t focus on what you fear, focus on what you want and make it exciting. Figure out why you want it, create an action plan, and surround yourself with the right people that will get you there. The more emotion you put in your purpose, the more fuel you have. You need to reward yourself when you’re doing the right thing. Take one small step today to get closer to your goals.
To your continued evolution, live it up with POWER, PURPOSE & PASSION!
