How to conquer your fears
Some people have so much fear it stops them moving forward or being successful.
Fear is the enemy of success.
Big rewards only result from taking some risks.
If you're ruled by fear, you'll block yourself from taking enough risks and block the success you deserve as a creator of your reality.
1. Put courage first and comfort second.
Repeated surveys have shown that most people value "security" or their ‘comfort zone’ over nearly everything else in their lives.
People will put up with work that they hate, marriages that make them depressed, and habits that are killing them (think "comfort food") simply to feel more secure or comfortable.
If we take the example of ‘comfort food’ many use it to ‘numb their feelings’.
That doesn't mean these moves weren’t challenging at the time, but I've managed to retrain my brain through Theta Healing® to get past the momentary fear and push toward the payoff. Here are some simple ideas you can take on as part of your thinking.
Most fears are irrational, illogical and unreasonable. For example, you may be afraid to make an important call because if it goes wrong, you'll have to face the fact that you "failed."
Or you might be afraid to confront a co-worker who acts like a bully in case they make you feel worse. You could be afraid to start your own business because you're not sure you can make it work.
There are other sorts of fears that are actually just simple prudence or common sense. For example, you might be afraid to rush whilst you drive because you might cause an accident. Or you might be afraid to be arrested or fined if you skip through all the red traffic lights.
Make certain you aren't pretending to be prudent--when you're just trying to avoid taking reasonable risks. Or holding off doing what’s necessary because you’re afraid you’re not good enough.
If what you fear is outside of your control write down a specific plan of the exact steps that you’d take in order to adapt, if and when it happens.
Once you've finished that plan, put it aside and forget about it.
You've done what you can; it's time to move on.
You can always enlist in a Theta Healing® course or session to overcome fears and phobias.
I mean now. Not tomorrow; not next week. Right now, before you read the rest of this post. Call that person. Write that email. Create your dream business plan. Do it now!
Take a moment and concentrate on the energy of fear that’s really fun. Think about the last time you were at a fun fair on a fast ride: You probably felt plenty of fear, but you were also having a great time and your senses were sharpened and you felt really alive..
A life without fear or the courage to do something about it would be pretty boring and ‘flat’.
You may have grown used to thinking of your fears or phobias as your own. They may have been with you your whole life. In Theta Healing® we come to understand that fears can be inherited on a genetic line, relived from a history level or simply be you tapping into the collective conscious fear of the news. We also know through kinesiology and digging for a root belief that the root of the fear is seldom to do with the original limiting belief.
