You Can Overcome Your Feelings of Fear

By: Karen Ruby        
Everyone has feelings of fear at once during their lives. What kind of fears? Fear is that feeling when you want to ask that girl or guy out but something stops you. It is fear when you have a life-long dream but you convince yourself that you can't go after that dream.
What's the scariest four letters in the English language F-E-A-R.

Our fear that stops us from going after what we want in life and which holds us back from giving 100% of ourselves.
Your reality is only your perception of it. If you are telling yourself you can't do something because of your circumstances, that's your fear talking. After all, I'm sure that with over 6 billion people on the planet someone somewhere who has the same circumstances as you has figured out how to do what you want to do in life. If they didn't let their fear stop them and figured a way, then so can you!

You don't believe that you can attain your financial goal? Why? Because your reality is telling you that you're not good enough, smart enough or deserve it? That's your fear trying to convince you - don't let it get the better of you. Suspend reality and believe that you are good enough, you are smart enough and you do deserve to have everything you want in life. Move past your fear and figure out how you can accomplish your goal.

We can suspend reality and take action today on moving towards success. A lot of times you'll find what you were so scared of, isn't that scary after all. We tend to build up fear in our minds and this can paralyze us from taking positive actions.
This is easy to say and very hard to do. A lot of the time we can be our worst enemies and give in to the fear. We come up with all sorts of reasons not to do things in our lives that will better us which sound totally plausible, but are really irrational - again it's our fear speaking. Isn't it true that we can convince ourselves of almost anything? What story are you telling yourself right now for why you can't go after your dream?

What can we do about it? Well, we can try to suspend reality for one. Act as if you have no fear. I'm not talking about jumping out of a plane without a parachute - gravity is very real. I'm talking about not believing everything you tell yourself on why you can't do what you really want to do in life.
We can acknowledge our fears. We are fearful of failing, of rejection, of success, of being laughed at.

Now that we know what we are scared of, what can we do to mitigate those perceived fears? Can we try as hard as we can and be as prepared as much as we can so that the chance of failure isn't as great? Can we accept that we are only human and will be rejected at some point in our lives? Who goes through life with a perfect track record? No one does. Can we accept that in some things we will fail and in others we will succeed? We have a good chance of either one happening. Can you live with those odds? If you're fearful that you might actually succeed, are you able to live with the consequences?
Change your mind (e.g. suspend what your reality is telling you) about fear. Fear isn't real. Fear is what you attach to situations or possible outcomes. Remove the perceived fear and you'll be able to move forward in your life.
