“Knowledge is the antidote for fear”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~
Ok, I have some good news for you about your fears!
Too often we are lead to believe in the idea that we have to conquer all of our fears and if we don’t, we’ll never be successful and we’ll be sad and miserable forever!
And yes it would be great to line up all those things that scare us and somehow overcome each and every one of them!
But the truth is that this is probably not going to happen! Like it or not, there are some things that we will always be afraid of!
But here’s the good news…
For me, there are two types of fears, there are those you can live with and those you can’t!
And the key is to decide which is which!
Personally, I have this fear of driving on the turnpike…you know where the cars drive really fast and there are no stop lights! And the truth is, I’ll probably never get over this fear but you know what, I can live with this!
On the other hand, it makes me really uncomfortable to be video taped. I’m not sure if this is a fear but I don’t like it. But because my business requires me to connect with people, I can’t live with this. I have to figure out how to conquer this discomfort…this fear!
But there are also those fears that I call “spirit-based fears”. These are the fears that cause us worry and doubt. These are the fears that are at the root of why we don’t believe in ourselves. Spirit-based fears tend to manifest when it’s time to make major decisions or at great moments of change.
Fear of failure and fear of the unknown are two of the most powerful spirit-based fears and they (I’m sorry to say) must be conquered!
And my absolute best advice for doing this is KNOWLEDGE!
Mystery can be scary! So, the more you know about a thing, the less fearful it will become.
Take the time to learn all that you can about the things that scare you. Plant your mind in this knowledge and you’ll find that your courage will begin to grow!
