We’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that this article will help you to stop fear from controlling your life. The bad news is that you’ll be facing it head-on (actually, it’s all good news).
It is human nature to avoid our fears. But by continually avoiding the “boogeyman” within, you ultimately become hostage to the monster. Once you face your fear - and give the boogeyman air – it will lose the ability to rule your life and dictate your decisions. Fear is real, but most of the things we fear will never happen and aren’t likely to hurt us. What will hurt us is living a smaller life with a lot of limitations.
Your ability to confront, deal with, and act in spite of your fears is the key to happiness and success. The best way to conquer fear is to face it head-on, but it’s important to do it in a healthy manner that helps you move past the fear, rather than in a way that traumatizes you.
Remember to appreciate your courage. Every time you don’t allow fear to keep you from doing something that scares you, you’re making yourself stronger and less likely to let fear stop you from leading the life you deserve.
You are not defined by fear, be mindful of that.
