Are you afraid of personal and business success? Fear- both real and imaginary-has been identified as one huge hindrance to success. It is one of the reasons many of us still continue to live small, shallow lives, a life lacking in the satisfaction and excitement that comes from trying new things. There can be no joy in the life of someone living in fear.
And the fears are many-the fear of success, the fear of failure, of being wrong, being insignificant, or just not being good enough. Whatever the type of fear, it freezes and paralyses imagination and resourcefulness. Further, fear easily permeates every fiber of your being and impacts your life in ways you may not be fully aware of.
All fears are based on thoughts, which in turn are functions of a person's experiences or expectations. What happens is that when you allow your mind to wander or constantly dwell on negative expectations, a pattern of thought is created in your mind which makes you to imagine only worst-case scenarios. Now, because you are made to think that the worst would happen if you act, you become afraid to act.
And the doom you've fantasized on your mind hovers as a thick gloom which prevents you from thinking clearly or taking action. So fear paralyzes a person, and stops one from doing what actually result in success!
Now, If you want to improve your circumstances in life and move beyond your stuck points, you'll need to become aware of your fears and how they control you and limit your reach. Yes, it's one thing to be afraid, but it's quite another to let that fear run your life. Fortunately you have a choice in the matter: you can decide to run your life yourself or let fear run things for you.
The first key to overcoming your fears is to learn to unearth and challenge them. This way, you can choose new, supportive thoughts and take different actions. You can choose to act in spite of the fear you are feeling. If you decide to reach out and take action despite your fears, you will discover that fears are really thin and weak. What happens is that the moment you confront your worst fears, they behave like those distant cloud that fade away as they 'see' you approaching! And you know what?
Any situation you've once faced and successfully overcome no longer scares you. Isn't that true? But it is also true that if fear holds you back from taking action, every little hindrance will continue to wear a big shadow, appearing like a huge obstacle. Because not dealing with issues that you are unable or unwilling to face invariably causes complexity and stress to you and your balance in life.
So now the choice is yours, really.
Another tested method for overcoming fears is talking your fears over with someone who truly cares about your feelings. But note that the emphasis is, not on who you talk to, but on talking out your fears at all. Yes, it's been proven that simply talking about fears reduces their effects on a person. The thing is that the moment you openly discuss your worst fears with someone, the fears begins to appear less intimidating.
Confronting one's fears can be tough. But doing so brings many rich rewards. For every small part of your fear that you conquer, new opportunities will suddenly spring up where obstacles previously existed. So really, by you taking action in spite of your fears means that you can give yourself a fair chance to succeed in any endeavor that you take on.
