CONQUERING YOUR FEARS
You were born with only three fears.
● Fear of heights.
● Fear of noise.
● Fear of abandonment.
All the fears that you face today you adopted along the way.
The word ‘fear’ is the acronyms of: ‘False Evidence Appear Real’
Most of your fears are the creations of the mind and as such, you can control and eliminate them.
Whether your fears are evoked because of rejection, of failure or criticism, all fears are created by the mind in order to protect you and your feelings from getting hurt.
Fears have a tendency to grow rapidly and become out of control, therefore it is important to be aware of your emotions and make sure to remove that fear before it will occupy your thought patterns and behaviours.
Here are two ways to conquer your fears.
Right now is the best time to make changes because everything is perfect, you can’t change the past or control the future.
The trick is to divert your focus away from your fears into the present moment. Take each day as it comes and try not to dwell on the past or the future.
List all the blessings you have in your life. Change your focus to your list of blessings whenever you feel fear pressing on your chest.
Another strategy is to pay attention to your thoughts when you experience fear.
Since the mind can only concentrate on one single thought at a time, the strategy is to switch (interrupt) the spiraling fear with the desired state that you want to be or to have.
The key is to change your thoughts whenever they enter your mind, which may be 50 or 100 times every day. The idea of that fear will eventually vanish, and you’ll move closer to your desired thoughts.
